Don't Call M.I.A. A Cliché!

| Filed under: Music MinuteSilly!M.I.A.

Amazing!

Check out this HIGHlarious Funny Or Die video featuring the oh so 'against the grain' Sri Lankan rapper M.I.A. enjoying her brand new life living in the suburbs as a wealthy young mom!

Spot effing ON!

The people who made this are going to have to watch this backs, though, or else the real M.I.A. is going to write a song about 'haters' - or just hock a loogie on them!

LOLs!

Thoughts??

    This was dull. M.I.A. is a cool chick. Arular was stellar. Anything after that just didn't sound the same though.

    Shocking, yet another video that Perez thinks is funny that is completely boring and lame. What's 'spot on' about it? Does M.I.A. live in Brentwood? Last I checked…no…she was living in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn. Which is a whole other strange thing…but that's besides the point. Not what I'd call the 'burbs though.

    Sounds a lot like Lady Gaga, who is "OH so against the grain".

    Er…..ya know….

    ….that M.I.A. is one heckuva cliché.

    Just sayin', man. Just sayin'.

    Meh I thought it was alright. I lold a couple times. :D

    You fucking idiot - that's not M.I.A - it's a parody video with an actress pretending to be her … fucking moron



  7. 7

    Why is M.I.A. even in the news, if people didn't blog about her, then her 15 minutes of fame would be over. In 10 years i'm sure we will see "One Hit Wonders" CD with "Paper Planes" on it. Oh ya CD's are going out … well M.I.A. is screwed then, soon to be forgotten.



  8. 8

    What if Perez is not gay? Is there any proof of him ever having a boyfriend?

    Re: djtuttyram – Can't you fucking read? They just said it was a parody! Now who's the fucking idiot?!

    Re: Canadian_Guy – M.I.A has been around for a while now…she is not a one hit wonder. She has three studio albums. She is way beyond "15 minutes"



  11. 11

    I don't know a lot about this chick except that she married into one STINKING RICH FAMILY. She's a Bronfman now…super fucking wealthy. Y'all have no idea. I think the term hypocrite fits much better than cliche.

    Why is this funny? M.I.A explained that she lives in Brentwood because she can't afford to have a nice house for her family in NYC. More insightful misogyny from Perez



  13. 13

    hey canadian guy, do they have radios up there? one hit wonder? you deserve a punch in the face for that. M.I.A. is huge underground and got some mainstream play with paper planes but has been around and popular for a long time. I bet you've heard her other songs but just didn't know it was her. Dumbass.



  14. 14

    Hilarious! Love it!



  15. 15

    Re: Canadian_Guy – um…MIA has two awesome albums before her latest. i think she has accomplished more than the generic, top 40 rock stars that you listen to. Her one radio friendly song that you happened to have heard hardly defines her success as an artist.
    man, you should just shut up. you are in idiot.



  16. 16

    haaa, i think its kinda funny. this parody explains how M.I.A. is trying very hard to not be mainstream, but when she makes money, she's gonna be like the rest: move to a rich neighborhood, marry rich, have a baby, hire a nanny/maid, and show off her fashionable items. we'll see though: right now, M.I.A. is a cool chick. we'll just see if money will change her.



  17. 17

    Re: cdn88

    just because you put out other albums doesn't mean you're not a one-hit wonder. one-hit doesn't mean you only made 1 song, it just means that you only made one POPULAR song that actually charted.

    as for the video, eh, it's okay.



  18. 18

    I think the point is that M.I.A. didn't START there. She rose up from very different circumstances from two different countries and made a name for herself worldwide, not had everything handed to her on a silver platter, like Gagag, who spent her whole life with those connections. So, good for her if she's living the good life in the suburbs now. She worked hard for it.

    Re: Canadian_Guy
    She wasn't a one-hit-wonder. Songs like Bucky Done Gun, World Town, and Galang have been in the club scene for YEARS worldwide. She's not necessarily played on repeat in mainstream pop dance clubs, but people knew about her long before Pineapple Express.

    Weak.

    At least MIA doesn't….

    - Spend millions upon millions trying to be the center of attention with a bunch of employed sycophants constantly focusing attention 100% on her.
    - Claim to have destitute origins. Coke is an expensive habit, you think while she was touring strip clubs with hairspray-flamethrowers Gags was a starving artist? Puh-leeze.
    - Preach lessons like a pastor from a "Book of Gaga"
    - Constantly have to preface things with "I'm artist"
    - Speak with a fake accent
    - Refuse to remove her sunglasses
    - Need product placement to carry her through
    - Need a whole series of gimmicks in order to put on a show
    - Obsess over her fans the way Gaga does
    - Try to cash in on gay stereotypes to make herself the icon of a minority with conveniently disposable incomes.

    MIA has had an interesting life, it isn't about her 100% of the time, she not afraid to have an opinion that's not popular (Gags CLEARLY is), and she deserves just as much respect as GAGS.

    This bitch really needs to be “` locked UP!!! POS!!



  23. 23

    Funny!Spot on!!!!



  24. 24

    i love MIA

    This bit was not funny, I got bored. It wasn't even clever to any extent.



  25. 25

    Re: CatAttack – yeah don't you hate it when celebs give credit for their success to their fans all the time? i much prefer it when they think that the only thing that got them famous is them.

    apparently most of you have no idea what a "hit" is. a hit is when a song is well known to everyone. it's popular. it's at the top of the music charts. it doesn't mean you've made tons of albums, it doesn't mean that it's only semi popular in the club scene or any other small place where not everyone goes or knows.



  26. 26

    If this ho hocked a loogie on BBD bitch would be D.O.A.!

    Re: princessmichelley
    One flimsy point against a whole series of arguments. *Yawn*

    Lady Gaga is popular. So were the Backstreet Boys, MC Hammer, Vanilla Ice, Deborah Gibson, Tiffany, Whitney Houston….so does it matter all that much if you've been a craze for a couple years? Is that really the summation of success?



  28. 28

    Re: Ducky911 – I agree, after the first 2 minutes I just kept skipping forward.

    Re: 6one9 – ur mom?



  30. 30

    Hilarious and right on the mark…exposes this chick for the hypocrite she is.



  31. 31

    the best thing about that was the gorgeous pit around 1:45………



  32. 32

    Re: CatAttack – @ 21 - I don't mind GaGa (but surely don't take her seriously) and don't listen to MIA (not my "thing"), however, I believe you are the one that is spot on……..

    p.s. i get the whole "obsessing over fans" comment…….some refuse to look outside the box though……… ;)



  33. 33

    Re: My black circumcised baby! – well since you dont know alot about her, i dont think you have the right to call her a hypocrite. learn how to back yourself up.
    google MIA and check out where she is from. SRI LANKA. She's a Tamil from Sri Lanka. if you knew anything about her, you'd know about the Tamil-Singhalese war that is going on in Sri Lanka. And you'd know she has been fighting for HUMAN RIGHTS her whole life and career, NOT TO BE NUMBER 1 ON THE CHARTS ;)

    Why is this "Amazing!" ? I really used to enjoy your blog but over the last year or so it's become incredibly dull and boring. Your unreflected posts about certain people just confirm this. Like the last few about M.I.A.
    Is it such a terrible crime to have money AND be politically outspoken? Does everyone have to act like your ahem…wifey and blubber some about "my gays yadda yadda" and everyone can see by a country mile that it's a mere PR trick?
    We all know why all of a sudden you are mad at M.I.A, perez. Cos she lashed in ahem..wifey's direction:A nd know what? She was spot on when she said she was a Grace Jones/Madonna mimic. I'd probably add Björk and Michael Alig to the list. Of course we all know you'll love love love M.I.A again once she agrees to play at one of your dull parties. Kinda like Courntey bb, eh? Gawd, you're a lame sell-out

    Re: princessmichelley – I dont think MIA is really interested in making hits. I think she is more pissed off that Paper Planes was a hit. Sorry everyone isnt about selling out Madison Square Garden. The thing is at least MIA has an opinion and she is not afraid to state it. It is a hell of a lot better than those who just go with the status quo. Her views are extreme and for a specific amount of people. She isnt sell out, she doesnt preach about not wanting to be a sex symbol but wears her underwear to fucking baseball games. That is classless and tacky.



  36. 36

    Fucking loser won't post my comment. NO ONE LIKES GAGA, M.I.A. IS A GOOD ARTIST, AND BISEXUAL MEN DO EXIST YOU FUCKING SHITTER PEREZ!



  37. 37

    lmao i wanna do is….hug my doggay! hilarious



  38. 38

    At 1:34 there's a guy in the backround thats dressed as a jew he appears again the video. Who is he? he is actually pretty funny for someone who is in only the vid for afew seconds. Plus he looks like a jonas brother! you get a better look at him at 2:04 lol the 4th jewish Jonas Brother!!!!

    Anyone agree?

    Re: zeusmom – you fucking piece of shit why dont you go give yourself a blow job. M.I.A isn't a hypocrite. All she does is bring out the fact that her country is going to through shit. I dont see how she's a hypocrite. And this video isn't funny it's fucking gay !



  40. 40

    Oh I dunno, I get that some might think she's selling out/hypocritical etc but those are usually the people who are the most jealous of anyone's success. None of her songs say that she's against wealth ( or didn't I listen hard enough?) just against attaining it at other people's expense like the gov't in her fathers country. She has a kid now and as I understand it, her in-laws bought them that house because of that fact. Would you turn down a mansion for your kid just because you thought you were too cool to have one? plus she has her whole crew of family and friends living there. If money and fame are the trappings of success her industry why shouldn't she be successful? Is say WEAR MORE BLING, MAYA….Mr. T that S*** up all day long because I'm not mad at ya!



  41. 41

    seriously stop blogging about the gutter rat and let her fade back into obscurity please..

    Re: nikkiluv126 – um…i think we know what "one hit wonder" means. It essentially means that the pinnacle of your acheivement is one hit song. Hence the term "wonder".
    I think when it comes to M.I.A. her acheivement is a body of work. For most fans, paper planes is often not even on the top their lists for the most noteworthy songs. She will be remembered for a lot more.

    lol :D
