She laughs like god, her mind's like a diamond
Carmen laughs like a being who is completely happy with themselves — fooling everybody into thinking she is happy.
Her mind being like a diamond is a reference to two things:
- This is a quote from Twin Peaks:
“[his] mind is like a diamond. It’s cold and hard and brilliant”.
People have often drawn comparisons to Lana’s style and the creator of the show, David Lynch’s eerie, atmospheric style.
- This is a reference to Marilyn Monroe’s Diamonds Are Girls Best Friend which preaches materialism. Carmen’s mind is solely focused on material things, as she has nothing else to focus on in life.
