Mariette may have been a witch of the darkest night at Melodifestivalen but judging by “My Revolution” she has seen the light.

https://youtu.be/qtV3DLZOdwg

The song is trailing her EP, out on June 17, and serves as the anthem for Stockholm Pride 2015.

Gothic chimes of doom, Dementor backing singers and bewitching light shows are out. Instead the track comes across as Glinda the Good, spreading hope and cheer in a glittering display that probably stops just short of bubblegum territory.

Mariette rests it back with her trademark ethereal voice, emotional vocal appeals and a message of tolerance and acceptance uncommon in today’s charts.

Mariette’s battle cry easily wins you round to her revolution, equal parts sugary pop and rallying anthem.

She told Sveriges Radio that the song is about “trusting your gut feeling.” “People should dare to make their own revolution,” she suggested to the radio station. Asked about her own personal revolution, she said it remains her experience of coming out: “even though I was so very worried about what people would think, I still found a pride there.”

We salute the inspirational message and the catchy song Mariette has chosen to show case the message in. We are all revolutionaries y’all and this song is a battlecry for us!

Bring on the EP.

@ Just SHUT UP..

Mariette is lesbian herself & she was awarded the title of the Homo of the year in Sweden..
This song of hers in this wiwi article *My Revolution* will be the anthem theme 4 the upcoming gay parade of Stockholm this summer..
At her speech when she was a spoke person of Sweden in the voting of Vienna’s EuroVision she talked about gay rights..

SO…
For you to think that i posted this comment of mine out of the blue when it makes perfectly sense with Mariette & the article is so idiotic..

oh just stop it already! There are worse things in this world than homophobia! Just stop with this here… Homophobia is not the only kind of discrimination! Yet you yell as if you were the Christ, and everyone wanted to crucify you for that. Stop being a victim and be proud of yourself and just stop giving a friggity fruck about what other people say.

She was voted as the gay/homo of the year in Sweden’s queer gala back in 2010 and congratulations to her <3 🙂

This song that she will sing as the anthem theme 4 Stockholm's gay love pride parade in summer is really beautiful <3

Our Vision really has to kill all the homophobia & not allow any homophobic act to compete..
If a homophobic country wins the Vision EBU should only let them host the EuroVision Contest if they drop all of their antigay homophobic laws/policies..

Mariette is really cool <3 She is sympathetic & i like her as persona <3 Her song *Don't Stop Believing* was fantastic & i wouldn't mind at all if she was the winner in Melodifestivalen 2015.. She really was from the acts that stood out the most in this Melodi…{along with Samir & Victor <3} Her live performance especially in the semifinal of Malmo was wow! <3 She stole the show! <3 She should definitely try again & enter in Melodifestivalen 4 one more time at least.. Maybe it will be even next year.. 🙂 I really do not know… Read more »
