Hope you're wearing some sort of helmet, because you're about to get your mind severely blown!

Although Janelle Monae will perform in a private event in El Lay, and M.I.A. will be singing in NYC, they will appear on the same stage together today! Because science, that's why!

Audi is holding a launch party for their new Audi 3, and they sensibly thought, "hey, why not have a party with some musical holograms?" So, not only will Janelle and M.I.A. be beamed in today, they'll also be

WERK IT GURL!

M.I.A. took to the stage at the Youtube Music Awards to perform her song Come Walk With Me and let's just say that she absolutely SLAYED the performance!!!

We love this song so much! That beat combined with those lyrics and her voice on top of it all is simply AH-MAZING!!

The song is off of her highly anticipated album Matangi due to be released tomorrow!

We wonder if she'll package her album with pieces from her collaboration line with Versace! If you buy a piece from the collab, you'll get her album included!!

LOLz!!!

The uber successful artists are set to battle it out with Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and many more outstanding musicians on November 3.

And even better, the live streamed show will feature sure-to-be click-worthy performances by Eminem, Lady GaGa, Arcade Fire, Avicii, M.I.A., Earl Sweatshirt, Tyler the Creator and Walk Off the Earth.

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:
