M.I.A. Gets Mad Over Article Glorifying Sri Lanka


M.I.A.


The singer is extremely upset after Times newspaper cited her homeland Sri Lanka as the top holiday destination, countering the publication with stark images of the country.

Hitmaker M.I.A. has blasted the New York Times over an article about Sri Lanka. The "Paper Planes" star has posted the video for Space Odyssey on her Twitter.com site as an angry response to a Times story, which listed Sri Lanka as the top holiday destination for Americans in 2010.

M.I.A., whose family hails from the war-torn country, countered the newspaper's photographs of "scenic" Sri Lanka with stark images of the country's civil war between the Tamil and the Sinhalese government. The singer-songwriter's publicist tells Fader magazine, "The song and video were made Monday night for $100, after the New York Times - as she (M.I.A.) says 'f**ked up so hard'."

M.I.A. is known after she shared her singles "Galang" and "Sunshowers" on internet in 2002. She later released her first album "Arular" on March 22, 2005 and second record "Kala" on August 8, 2007. Later, she is about to release her third album "Mission.Impossible.Area" in summer 2010.
