M.I.A. Admits She Copies Lady GaGa in 'Born Free' Music Video

'Both our videos are road movies. We kill people, and they kill people,' M.I.A. says of the similarity between 'Born Free' and 'Telephone' music videos.

Although she is not a big fan of Lady GaGa, M.I.A. admitted that the dance queen has inspired her in shooting "Born Free" controversial music video. In an interview with New York Times, she said, "With our video, we were really copying 'Telephone'."

The singer, who is going to release a new album in the U.S. on July 13, explained further on what make the two clips are similar. "Both our videos are road movies. We kill people, and they kill people. They start out in a prison, and we start out in a squat, hunting people down," she gushed.

But, this doesn't mean that M.I.A. is now befriending the "Poker Face" hitmaker. "I can't talk about GaGa anymore," she said in further statement. "All I'll say is, it's upsetting when babies say ga-ga now. It used to be innocent. Now, they're calling her name."

The 34-year-old singer/songwriter got even more annoyed when GaGa, who actually is her labelmate in Interscope, is compared to Madonna. "You can't really say that GaGa is culturally a change," she blasted. "Madonna was truly unique."

    Now this is entertaining, who comes up with this stuff, MIA or the media? If the idiot writer took a moment to read the article she would see MIA was clearly being sarcastic. MIA rants on gaga as an analogy to compare the state of entertainment and how it is prepackaged garbage with no substance. The times article was a total set up, it was contrived, manipulative and oozing BS. The article coming from the same women who ruined the life of courtney love by writing she was doing heroin while pregnant. The fact that MIA tweeted her cell number is hilarious. The media thinks they can mold people into bit sized easy to swallow opinion and I praise MIA giving everyone a big sized FCK-U.
