M.I.A. Refuses To Have Quickie Marriage To Get Green Card

| Filed under: Love LineM.I.A.


We guess some things are important to everyone - even M.I.A.!

The Sri Lankan rapper, who was locked out of the USA after visa issues a few years back, could easily resolve her immigration woes by marrying her fiance/baby daddy Benjamin Bronfman and getting a green card, but for the first time in her life she wants to be traditional and have an actual wedding!

She reveals:

"That's what they want me to do, but I'm not going to lose my integrity for that shit… I actually want a nice wedding. I'm not going to blow that. If they're gonna kick me out, it's going to be a fight, it's an important fight to have."

We agree with you on this stuff, bb! Everything that went down was pretty effing ridiculous if you ask us, and everyone deserves the wedding of their dreams - without the headache of having to cut through STOOPID red tape!

    i dont understand the hate from this blog and its users, this woman is fucking GORGEOUS, and has more talent in her baby finger nail than most of the other pop stars blogged about here.

    And I mean GORGEOUS, I would love to have one night with MIA

  2. 2

    she should just go away

  3. 3

    see, they aren't all the same lowlife, looking for a quick fix, pieces of camel shit……i like this girl - don't like her "music" but i like her independence and strong mind.

  4. 4

    If bitch wants to show such blatant disrespect for the laws of our country- KICK THE BITCH OUT!!! Laws are laws not "red tape". Laws were good enough for every legal immigrant that went thru Ellis Island. Kick her out and all the wetbacks too.

  5. 5

    i honestly think i am in love with this girl, she is beyond beautiful

  6. 6

    This is old news….this quote was in Fader magazine 2 months ago. Looks like you have nothing else to write about. Oh, and she is great, unlike you.

    Re: shittin_condoms – get the point, thanx.

    Re: WigGuy – Boy, you are in desperate need of fucking yourself. This website is run by a Hispanic gay man. What are you doing here? Go kiss Sarah Palin's ass somewhere else.

  9. 9

    my question is if she isn't a resident and she has an expired green card then is she not paying taxes on all those millions she has been making over here?

    Am I the only one who doesnt really care that much about M.I.A. and her statements? Idk people say they like her because of her "strong opinions" but I just think she's kinda full of it.

  11. 11

    If she's not following the law and her time is up on a visitors visa, then off she goes! Sorry… that's the way life goes. Rules and laws and such. You know… being a mommy now, one would think she would GET those basics of life.

  12. 12

    I didn't realize following a few laws was "stoopid red tape". What's wrong with immigrating legally?

  13. 13

    Keep talking about it and shining light on our crippled immigration laws!!! Now more than ever.

    Re: maxie pad – Rather apt name since apparently you are on the rag.
    You are under the bizarre belief that anyone that thinks laws are laws must be some kind of homophobe or racist or a fan of Sarah Palin. I am interested in why you feel compelled to bring u anyone's sexuality since that is not the topic.
    Yes, I know the site is run by a gay hispanic man. I also know it is run by a LEGAL American citizen that is of hispanic heritage that happens to be gay. Actually he is of Cuban heritage
    I don't care where a LEGAL American citizen considers their heritage to be from. I care that someone thinks the laws are "red tape" or that they shouldn't apply to someone that is a "celebrity" (highly refutable in the case of this M.I.A. broad) or even more ridiculously that someone believes laws should not apply to her because she is "gorgeous" or that they think she has a talented "little finger". (No wonder celebrities think they are above the law. Apparently, people actually WANT them to be treated as if they are.)

    It's also rather amusing that you assume I am not a minority myself or that I am straight or even that I have any kind of affection for Sarah Palin or her ass.

    If we would have diligently enforced the LAWS of expired Visas for visitors to our country, we would have deported the terrorists that killed American CItizens on 9/11. The LAWS are in place for a reason.

  16. DaLa says – reply to this


    Her father is a known terrorist and she is quite vocal about her Tamil Tiger sympathies. Typically Perez can't see beyond celebrity to grasp the bigger world picture. Read a newspaper once in a while, and, no, Us, People and The National Enquirer are NOT newspapers.

  17. 17

    I don't like her…never have…never will…she is no different than any other person who is here illegally and should abide by this countrys laws if she wants to stay. What the hell is the hold up! If she is gonna marry this man let her do it NOW and fulfill the requirements needed instead of wasting time…just to make a statement…i mean…what's the statement…"I'm an idiot who just wants attention!!!"…kick her ass back until she decided to do what is right!

  18. 18

    deport the bitch

  19. 19

    look, …. it is Natalie from Bad Girls Club.

  20. 20

    Wasn't she born and raised in South London?

  21. 21

    perez its starting to annoy me now, shes fricking british as in a british citizen so when referring to her citizenship she is not sri lankan, dont you know the difference between nationality and ethnicity? i guess youre not american but cuban then

    Re: WigGuy – I apologize for not being clear. The only point that I was trying to convey is that you're a fucking jerk. Thanks!

  23. 23

    Red tape?? … Oh, you mean those annoying LAWS that you seem to like to completely disregard whenever it suites you. No green card, get out. Simple as that. She wants to come back, get a new visa and do it properly like so many others have done for centuries. She's hardly a celebrity anyway, not much use for her.

  24. 24

    Re: maxie pad – To convey one's point that someone one is being…how did you so eloquently put it? Oh yes. "fucking jerk" If you were trying to convey the point that i am a "fucking jerk" you really need to make your case. You know, explain yourself as a grownup with an intellect beyond that of a doorknob or a 3rd grader on the playground.
    Make your case as to why you believe the laws of this nation should not be followed. Make your case as to why they should not be followed because of the incredible positive influence this M.I.A. person continues to have on American society. Make your case as to why, even though it would mean breaking the law, she should stay. Make your case that her continued ILLEGAL stay on American soil is paramount to the Freedoms every LEGAL American citizen enjoys.
    Otherwise the only point you are making is that you think anyone that disagrees with you is a "fucking jerk". In which case I should follow your 3rd grader on the playground mentality and say "you're a poopyhead because you don't think the exact same thing I do."
    Or I could ask you to explain why VISITORS to America with expired visas should be allowed to continue to break the LAWS of our country to my Fireffighter brother. Oh that's right, you can't explain that to him because he was murdered by ILLEGAL terrorists at the World Trade Center on 9/11.

    She's holding things up because she wants a nice wedding? The bitch already squeezed out a baby by this guy.

  26. 26

    She is NASTY an DISGUSTING. I hope she never sets foot in the U.S. That woman is nothing but pure TRASH!

    ""That's what they want me to do, but I'm not going to lose my integrity for that shit…"
    Dearest MIA:
    You lost your integrity a long time ago (along with your relevance and credibility).

  28. 28

    MIA is talented and beautiful in an uncompromising way. And her first two albums were amazing.
    But like most loud, self-important celebrities…she is unbelievably annoying when she isn't creating music. I mean I am a very skeptical person, but I am not against EVERYTHING. Things are a bit more nuanced. MIA calm down and fill out the paper work for goodness sakes.

  29. CocoK says – reply to this


    Her ear lobes are YUGE.

  30. 30

    MIA is beautiful and super talented. She just needs to calm down already.

    Re: WigGuy – The 9/11 terrorists arrived in the US on student visas. My god, you are not just a fucking jerk, but a hysterical idiot as well.

    And your bother was a firefighter who died while doing his job. That's what he was paid top dollar for. Spare me the "innocent victim" spiel, PLEASE.

    Finally, MIA is an international star. She does not need to get married for a Greencard, she can obtain one because of her own merits.

  32. 32

    Wow, I have respect for her. She should keep sticking to topics like this and talking about things that only solely concern her. It's her blabbing about others that gets her bad press :/

  33. 33

    Re: maxie pad – You are definitely a maxi pad. You obviously have your head up between some bitches legs and have the blood of every decent American dripping all over you.
    I don't know which is your biggest example of your ignorance.
    You think this M.I.A. bitch is some kind of "international" "star"? You think green cards are given out to "international" "stars"? You think firefighters are paid "top dollar"? You think that an expired student visa is any different than an expired work visa? You think that there were no "innocent victims" amongst the victims of 9/11? You think that what you think is a substitute for facts.
    Fact- Bitch broke the law. Fact - Just because a bitch comes from a foreign country does not make her an "international" "star". It means she had to get a fucking visitors visa to be ALLOWED in to the country. Fact-This bitch is no "star". If given a green card, in 5 years her career is going to involve scrubbing toilets at a Motel 6. Fact - Firefighters are extremely poorly paid. Fact - Every time a firefighter goes out to perform their job the odds are high that they may not come back alive. Fact - You still need to to grow the fuck up.
    Have a nice day.

    Re: WigGuy
    WigGuy you are ridiculous and self deluded. You insult someone else for not having the facts straight. I don't want to get into some kind of heated battle with you over more sensitive matters. But saying, MIA is not an international star is NOT A FACT. It is your opinion. My opinion and a lot of well regarded music industry sources would also say otherwise. That doesn't mean you are not allowed your opinion. But don't get into a battle with someone over semantics and such when you are a pompous, crass idiot.
