This article has given me my first big laugh of the day.

New York Times Magazine contributor Lynn Hirschberg has written an article about British “artist” M.I.A (real name Maya Arulpragasam), which has hilariously forced the grossly over-rated star to retaliate via her Twitter account, by childishly posting Hirschberg’s mobile number to her adoring followers.

I doubt Hirschberg gives a toss Maya.

Maya you seriously need to get over herself luv. You really do believe your own hype.

I’ve never bought in to this woman’s image/clap trap and never will.

  1. Ahh…J’s best friend, M.I.A. J finally found someone else, who shares her great love for M.I.A. Lynn Hirschberg is the new Jim Jim.

  2. I remember back over soon previous posts regarding MIA, her videos, performances etc… and Jan’s wording SEEMED abit harsh, at the time I was OK but ||I think shes [M.I.A.] cool, each to thier own or what ever,… but I know understand why Janice’s words appeared Harsh,… but I see and undersatnd much better now inregards to MIA, I mean nobdoy likes a friut cake who keeps on telling ppl they are made from sponge lol

    if she’s really from bethenal green, she should have said that, instead of lying about being down with the tigers and what they stand for etc etc… lying to herself and everyone that will give her thier time KMT!!!!

    ps… Keep doing you Janice! lol

  3. I think Janice was spot on with the analysis myself personally. I’ve just listened to around 5 tunes of hers, what a load of crap. Talk about dumbing down the population. Simpleton beats with nursery style rhyming is so not my cup of tea. I feel the girl is trying to take the pee out of me. I dread to think how a person would turn out after listening to her albums, might drop a person’s IQ by about 50 points. Has this chick ever done a tune that was decent?

  4. @Fr

    A colleague of mine went to the same school as her in leafy WIMBLEDON. So not sure where Bethnal Green came from!

    I think she’s a fake. I can’t take this woman seriously at all

  5. Publish someone’s private number online.That’s childish.

    I am just reading her wiki. This girl is really 35 years old ? there must be a mistake somewhere. she doesn’t look a day over 21.How long has this girl been “singing” tho ?

  6. @DivaKattGurl:

    I just couldn’t believe what I was hearing. I felt insulted by the tunes she was putting out. It literally is nursery rhyme level stuff. Well, nothing surprises me anymore, it wasn’t so long ago that folks were going nuts over una loco rana manejando una motocicleta:

    It seems that mankind is trying to return back to the womb.
