M.I.A.'s Dream Wedding Plans Revealed!

M.I.A.'s Dream Wedding Plans Revealed!

M.I.A. looks exotically beautiful in this shot featured in the July 2010 issue of GQ magazine.

The 34-year-old “Born Free” singer shared details on her dream wedding outfit in addition to what her life was like as a child.

On what she wants to wear to her wedding: “I’ve always wanted to get married in a white suit,” she says. “I used to work at a Kodak lab in England, cutting photos after they’d come out of the wash, and in one I saw this couple getting married on a beach in white suits, and their kid was there.”

On growing up without her dad: “England gave me a free education, but my grades suffered because I didn’t have my dad to help me. I’ve paid the price. I’ve had the cause and effect, all that shit. I feel like I don’t have anything to do with my dad.”

On her childhood in Sri Lanka: “I lived on a street, a dead-end street. There were like seven or eight houses, and then you turn the corner and there was another seven, eight houses. But my whole family lived on the street. So it was amazing. I grew up with about a hundred of my cousins, playing hide-and-seek all over the village and the temples.”

    I’d have appreciated a “Get the Look” here, I want her jewellery.

  • love her.

    “She and Ben are getting married soon – they have 10 months before Maya’s American work visa runs out again – but they don’t know where, as their families are so dispersed. After that, they’re thinking of living on a boat. “I’m so up for that,” says Ben, who’s back with Ikhyd.

    Maya tells a story about moving back to England when she was 10. On her first day at school, her class were working through a sum. Maya put her hand up, because she knew the answer. “And literally the whole class turned round and laughed at me,” she says, laughing herself.

    The teacher patted her on the head and told her she didn’t have to pretend. But she did know the answer – she just couldn’t speak English. She didn’t have the words to tell them. “I didn’t care,” she says. “I was happy. I was happy wherever.”

  • so true, and so sad.

    “The difficulty for MIA is not that she’s lying. It’s that the world doesn’t really care.”

    Her hair doesn’t look it’s best but her skin always looks so gorgeous and glowy, and the gold looks amazing against her complexion. Her latest video was so hard to watch, but she sings the truth.

  • steve

    ::yawn:: i wish she would just go away she’s not that interesting and definitely not anywhere near as clever or creative she seems to think she is..

  • Jesss

    MIA looks FAB.. the jewel look rocks on her. Bedazzling…

    she has such a strong pretty face.. why does she always downplay it with tuff fashion. she should really ‘own’ her South Asian fashion heritage like she is here.. with bedazzling jewels….

    Her latest video was so hard to watch, but she sings the truth.
