M.I.A. Making Some Enemies
M.I.A. really knows how to piss people off these days.
Most recently, the Sri Lankan rapper has managed to target both Oprah Winfrey and Lady Gaga — two powerful ladies who you probably shouldn’t be hating on; unless of course she’s just looking for some publicity.
Speaking of Lady Gaga, M.I.A. said, “Is it about numbers? About how much you’re selling? Is it truly the journey? Because Lady Gaga’s journey isn’t that difficult: to go from the fucking Upper East Side to a fucking performing arts school and onto a stage at the museum of fucking whatever. That journey’s about four miles.”
Yeah, it’s Lady Gaga’s journey that is making your album plummet 25 spots on the Billboard 200.
And then speaking of her encounter with Oprah, “Oprah seemed to be giving me the cold shoulder. She was dancing with Imaa. Imaa was always dancing with me, hugging and kissing me. Oprah seemed really pissed off with me.”
But hey, at least M.I.A. apologized for the fucking disaster of a show in New York City the other week. As a sign of her apology, she’ll come back to New York, after her tour, and perform a free concert.
Sorry for the language; it just seemed all too necessary.
