M.I.A.'s claws are out and ready to scratch!
The Bad Girls singer is now alleging that the biggest music awards show of the year, the Grammys, ripped off her stage design from a month before.
The angsty entertainer took to her Tumblr to start a "steal log" of all the M.I.A. copy cats out there.
Below a screenshot of her performance in January, compared to the Bob Marley tribute performed by Rihanna, Bruno Mars, and Sting, she wrote:
"My ideas came from my life. My set was based on Tamil Hindu temple. Not Bob Marley. If u wanna see the real thing or get it first, come to a M.I.A. show!"
The only similarity we see are lights and geometric shapes (see below), but those seem like PRETTY common characteristics.
Could it just be that she's pissed she didn't get nominated or does she REALLY believe it?
Even if they are ripping her off, didn't her mama teach her that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery!
Give it up gurl and get back in the studio!!!
