M.I.A. Continues Her War Against The New York Times And Lady GaGa!

wenn2640267__opt-1__opt1.jpg

Here she goes again!

M.I.A. apparently hasn't spouted off enough crazy lately, so she's not only once again going after the recent article done on her in The New York Times Magazine, but is also STILL slamming Lady GaGa!

She says:

"You know for me it was about the fact that I said, 'Fuck The New York Times', quite a few times and it was written about and then in the article it was ignored, when that was what was interesting. So why would they put me on the cover of The New York Times? That question was really interesting to me, she (journalist) didn't really explore it, she just took a cheap shot. For the first time you have the tools to fight back. Imagine if Amy Winehouse and Lindsay Lohan and all these people were able to fight back using the internet, because you can. The New York Times was going to try and discredit my words and my experiences. I think you know what? I might have been a bit impulsive, but I think what we have found [is] a new way to deal with news."

"Lady Gaga is someone who lives completely within [the industry]. That’s what you can get if you say ‘yes.’ I would have those outfits on and my hair would look like that and those are the songs I would sing. Everybody else on my label’s budget would get cut in order for my Grammy performance with Elton John to be banging.”

Okay, bb, we think it's time to let it go!

We all get it, you're soooo nonconformist, fuck the system, blah blah blah!

You're starting to sound like your latest album - a lot of obnoxious, abrasive noise that makes no cohesive sense all together!

New York Times Magazine Posts Correction On M.I.A. Article!

Filed under: Celebrity FeudsOops!PolitikM.I.A.

They must have been feeling the heat!

After days of M.I.A. waging war on New York Times Magazine's Lynn Hirschberg over her piece on the Sri Lankan rapper, the publication has released this statement:

The cover article in The Times Magazine on Sunday profiled the singer and political activist M.I.A. While discussing her efforts to draw attention to the civil war in her home country, Sri Lanka, she was quoted as saying: “I wasn’t trying to be like Bono. He’s not from Africa — I’m from there. I’m tired of pop stars who say, ‘Give peace a chance.’ I’d rather say, ‘Give war a chance.’ The whole point of going to the Grammys was to say, ‘Hey, 50,000 people are gonna die next month, and here’s your opportunity to help.’ And no one did.”

While M.I.A. did make those remarks, she did not make the entire statement at the same point in the interview, or in the order in which it was presented.

The part that begins, “The whole point of going to the Grammys,” up to the end of the quotation, actually came first. The part that begins, “I wasn’t trying to be like Bono,” and ends, “Give war a chance,” came later in the same interview. The article should have made clear that the two quotations came from different parts of the interview.

There you go!

What do U think?? Does the clarification of the article make that much of a difference??

M.I.A. Continues To Unleash On NYT Magazine Reporter, Premieres New Track!

Filed under: Music MinuteCelebrity FeudsPolitikM.I.A.

She really is not letting this one go, is she?!

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:

M.I.A.:
"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."

Lynn:
"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??

Take a listen BELOW!

Thoughts??

MIA Pissed About NYT Magazine Interview! Tweets Reporter's Cell Phone Number

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueM.I.A.Twitter

wenn2640267__opt1.jpg

It seems M.I.A. was so pissed about her cover story in New York Times Magazine, that she Tweeted writer Lynn Hirschberg's phone number.

The article tackled the rapper's crazy ass political views and that even though she married the son of a billionaire, M.I.A. is still ghetto.

Ha!

"It's a fairly unethical thing to do, but I don't think it's surprising," said Hirschberg. "She's a provocateur, and provocateurs want to be provocative…[it's] infuriating and not surprising."

And she's not even gonna changer her number! Wowsa.

P.S. CLICK HERE to "follow" Perez on Twitter!
