Why is M.I.A caught in a net? From what I see I think the whole crochet thing going on is distracting. But the black dress underneath be itself would have been better. Love Love Alexander Wang and Zoe though!!

If you haven’t seen M.I.A new music video for “Born Free” yet……….watch it. The scenes shown are so RAW, youtube was pulling the video down left right and center : [ My boyfriend was speechless after watching it………the reality is this is the world we live in and we all just turn a blind eye and live our everyday lives surfing JJ for gossip and pretty things……..when all this is happening around us. Google her video bc YT doesn’t have it anymore.

@CJackson: yea i heard about that, everyone was talking about it. i haven’t seen it, i’m scared to because i’m the most squeamish person when it comes to blood and stuff. but i because it has a message

Her skin tone is lovely.

aw, she changed her hair from the short blonde highlights bob…she looks nice

My girl <3

@CJackson: The video is Extremely explicit and intense. However if you can sit through District 9 you can sit through Born Free.

@Jermaine: as far as music videos go nowadays born free is one of the best videos. visually amazing without being try hard and needing a thousand distractions, disturbing with a purpose, it will never be played on the music channels and she knows that. but she doesn’t care because she’s not a fu*king sellout.

M.I.A. > Lady Gaga (as far as uniqueness, artistry, and edgy fashion goes. I still love me some dancing to Pokerface)

@CJackson: It is very very very very disturbing but a very powerful video….. :3

She has a gorgeous face but what an awful dress. But it is MIA. what can we expect? lol.

I really like the dress! It’s definitely different and interesting. Kinda fierceee lol I just wish she fixed her hair, that kinda ruined it !

She looks gorgeous!
@CJackson: Her video for “Born Free” is a must-see! It’s disturbing and beautiful at the same time. People who dismiss it as too violent have no idea that the video is actually anti-violence and discrimination.

That’s not actually netting, it’s crochet, and certainly not granny’s handiwork.

very M.I.A.!
She got the attitude to wear it.

yuck. she looks greasy.

Her video stayed me with for the whole day after I watched it : [

It was so so graphic….my god, so disturbing but obviously with a message.

I knew to expect something shocking because it’s M.I.A but she really didn’t hold back this time, it definitely shocked me but made me respect her more. It’s also amazing that you can see how personal the video is to her…even though she is not in it.

Here, she reminds me of young British powerhouse Vanessa White

Wow… M.I.A. never looked so good. I wish I was in the NYC during this event at the MET Art Museum… Lots of stars attended it and it was a great place to host the event, considering the financial distress they’ve been experiencing the last few months. I really missed out :/
