M.I.A.'s 'Paper Planes' Video Sabotaged With Censorship


M.I.A.


Upon finding out that the sound of gunshots in her music video has been replaced, M.I.A. expressed her disappointment in a MySpace post.

Visual and outspoken artist, M.I.A., has slammed MTV for taking a major part in streaming the censored version of her latest video, 'Paper Planes'. The British rapper is left fumed after finding out that the gunshots sound from her video has been replaced by the sound of cash register.

She wrote on her MySpace that the video has been sabotaged and that she's "disappointed" for the violation to her "dying art". The post read: "I made the Paper Planes video. I made it how they wanted. No violence. Ambiguous. MTV-friendly. Now today, I check YouTube and see the leaked MTV Paper Planes video up for the first time. I clicked on it and out comes this f**ked up mess with double-tracked bulls**t mess."

M.I.A. also slammed Late Show with David Letterman that gave a green light to her original version during the sound check but put on a different version of it during the broadcast. "As soon as I opened my mouth, the difference blew me away," M.I.A. said. "I felt I was getting bullied on national television, and I couldn't even reach out to my labels or my management to help, since they are new to what happens to an artist like me in mainstream American culture."

In depth she also explained the reason why gunshots sound is used. "I'm learning things about this world with you, I want you to see what happens to me, I want you to see how people will sit and spend all Sunday tearin' me down for something I didn't even make or put out, so people welcome to modern day propaganda message mangling."

Closing the post she attached the uncensored version of the video which can be seen, and heard, below.
