Well, we think it's safe to say that she's completely jumped the shark.
M.I.A., who was the top-billed performer over the weekend at the HARD FEST on Governor's Island in NYC, reportedly blew her much-anticipated set so badly that even her most adamant supporters bailed five tracks in!
Although there were apparently a myriad of technical problems, according to an anonymous concert goer:
"mia [sucked] so bad, she must must have done [it] on purpose. she's got some tricks and some ideas, but [I] think she just got so cagey when die anterwoord blew her out of the water that she pulled this weird ass rockstar theatrics and sabotaged herself and the sound system, along with throwing a big fuck you to the crowd that actually came to see her. [I] mean at some point before she went on, they cut the Dj off and there was this whole sound from the backstage VIP area, and the crowd got [to] listen to it for a few minutes in silence, and it was like "that's were the party is at, suckers". I don't know if she drinks or not, but the bit about having a shot of [tequila] in her seemed by far the realest part of the night. The best was the rain over the lazers, but she didn't even know how to make that to work for her, so it seemed like Nature taking pity on her."
And, as you can see by photos (above) she even took it upon herself to hock a loogie onto a photographer in the audience!
Lovely! We think ostracizing your fans and supporters by putting out an effortless, piece of garbage album and harassing your audience is a great way to advance your career, bb!
That is, if you even have one after this.
We're not sure she can even turn this whole mess around anymore.
What do U think?? How can M.I.A. get back on track??
