    Charli & Marina Engage in Pointless Twitter Drama

    Charli XCX and Marina & The Diamonds have become embroiled in a predictably petty Twitter dispute over a recent photoshoot that XCX participated in.

    The formerly friendly English alt=pop stars and one-time collaborators on fan favourite 'Just Desserts' took shots at each other over social media recently following a photoshoot that XCX worked on with photographer Charlotte Rutherford for a new fragrance she has concocted with Impulse UK.

    The drama began on Rutherford's page, when an innocent upload turned into a battle ground after Marina (@marinagrams) called out the singer for their allegedly similar styling.

    Marina, of course, is alluding to the album artwork for her single 'Immortal', which was also shot by Rutherford and which featured a similarly tropical kitsch setting.

    Not content with one social media complaint, the star who once found success with single 'Primadonna' later took to Twitter to sub-tweet XCX, with a passive aggressive remark which seemed to insinuate that the style was in some way original.

    XCX took the higher ground in a longer response posted to Instagram and Tweeted to Diamonds, going on to clarify "fyi i'm not shading/dragging/beefing. that's not something I do. I'm just being direct and setting the record straight."

    Given the duo's penchant for a Tumblr-inspired aesthetic and the ridiculously large egos of both involved, we're not surprised that the two have had a falling out, although the pettiness behind such a large rift is undeniably bizaare. Rutherford's imagery, while beautiful, is hardly unique, and to claim that one image was ripping off another would be to say that every Terry Richardson black and white polaroid was a mimicry of the last.

    What do you think of Diamonds' accusations? Are her actions justified, or is she overblowing the situation? Let us know in the comments section below!

    So happy to see that Charli is being professional. I wish the drama didn't exist at all, but since Marina had to be a child I'm glad Charli stood up for herself, and did it very nicely. XCX3 is coming :tan:

    Completely agreed! :hail: I don't always agree with everything Charli does (largely the tour cancellation and the relentless Gaga shade) but she took the higher ground here so she has kudos in my book. Good for her. <3

    They were friends, but what kind of friend doesn't pay attention to their friends music and art that's coming out? Some friend Charli is.

    Probably a friend who's busy organising a world tour, working on her third studio album, setting up a record label and writing hits for A-list stars like Gwen Stefani. :magic:

    You mean a friend who can't take the time of day to look through her Instagram, Twitter, iTunes, or anything to listen to a 3 minute song? :morning:

    To be fair, I only got through one minute of 'Immortal' before falling asleep, so I see where Charli's coming from. <3
