M.I.A. is still seriously PISSED OFF about an interview she did with New York Times Magazine reporter Lynn Hirschberg, in which she feels falsely represented, so she not only took to her website to post an audio recording of the two together to clear up what was actually said, but also wrote, mixed and performed a BRAND NEW TRACK about the entire situation!
Wow! She pulled that one together pretty quickly, don't you think??
Apparently, M.I.A. ACTUALLY was recorded saying:
"It wasn't just about me, and me getting to the Oscars or me going to the Grammy's. That doesn't mean anything, the whole point of that journey was so you can go, hey, 50,000 people are going to die next month. Here's your opportunity to help and no one did, and they still died! It wasn't about accolades or fame."
"Oh yeah, I understand."
She also released a brand-new track in direct response Hirschberg, called I'm A Singer Haters!
Too bad it SUCKS! Doesn't really help your plight now, does it, bb??
