M.I.A. Slams Oprah Winfrey For Calling Her a Crazy Terrorist

M.I.A. just opened up about being shunned by Oprah Winfrey at a 2009 event in a brand new interview with Rolling Stone!

“In 2009, Time nominated me for one of the most influential people of the 21st century or something and I met Oprah at that party. And I was like, ‘Hey, people are gonna f–king die in my country. Like, please pay attention.’ And she was like, ‘You’re sh-t because you were rude to Lady Gaga and I’m not talking to you. And I’m gonna interview Tom Cruise jumping on my sofa, so f–k off,’” the 39-year-old rapper shared.

M.I.A. added, “Yeah, she didn’t talk to me. She shut me down. She took that photo of me, but she was just like, ‘I can’t talk to you because you’re crazy and you’re a terrorist.’ And I’m like, ‘I’m not. I’m a Tamil and there are people dying in my country and you have to like look at it because you’re f–king Oprah and every American told me you’re going to save the world.’”

ARE YOU SURPRISED by M.I.A.’s comments about Oprah Winfrey?

    How high was M.I.A. when she gave the interview to RS? I have a hard time believing Oprah talked like that.

  • Jake

    Oprah needs to stop being rude, that’s all. She has no power. She’s a nothing but an old lady with rudeness. Go M.I.A.

  • Aloel96

    I don’t really understand her statement

  • Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    Do you met her on party and ask for help?

  • Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    You remind me of video when Justin Bieber fans was asked “Justin punch his grand mother. What you think about it?”

    “She deserve it. He can’t do nothing bad”

  • Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    She said Oprah is good only for public image.

  • Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    You don’t even read the article.

  • Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    Her album called so. Oprah knew it. You don’t even read the article.

  • jason

    mia is an ugly crazy a$$ b&tch

  • Kevin Clark

    M.I.A. flipped off the entire viewing audience on national television during the highest rated television moment in history up until that time (The Super Bowl half time show when she performed with Madonna and Nicki Minaj). She just likes stirring up sh**. Ignore her. Oprah is a smart woman. She knew what she was doing.

  • Shenanigans

    m.i.a even has the timelines mixed up. YOU read. tom cruise jumped on the couch in 2005.

  • Tick

    MIA needs to worry about her own attitude and image, while she’s busy spending money supplied by her VERY wealthy hubby.

    Take your meds, sis.

    lmao…MIA was on some serious sh!t when she gave this interview. she spoke to Oprah in 2009 at a TIMES party and Oprah said she has to go interview Tom Cruise jumping on the couch (which happened already in 2005)? lmao…intervention needed ASAP. and sure, i believe MIA that oprah would call her a terrorist in front cameras and in close ear shot of anyone who can listen.

  • Zoee

    If that is true It was maybe becaouse MIA FATHER IS ARULAR

    father adopted the name Arular and became a political activist and founding member of the Eelam Revolutionary Organisation of Students (EROS), a political Tamil group affiliated with the LTTE. (WIKI)

  • Jimmy

    So is the loon looking for media attention? this nonsense is like 6 years old

  • Endora

    M.I.A.’s a liar, Oprah has never been known to talk that way!

  • PM2901


  • lindsay

    Tom Cruise jumping on that sofa happened in 2005. MIA is just a nobody and I don’t believe Oprah would ever talk like that to anyone. Oprah has no problem interviewing Aishwarya Rai, a Bollywood superstar, who is also of Tamil heritage, MIA is just looking to keep herself famous.

  • Shirley Lebovich

    she will be calling out Hitler in another interview, this gal is nuts

  • Areader

    I ball BS, Oprah most likely shunned her, however, Oprah is to smart to talk to her like that!

  • Shenanigans

    shes not married. divorced and in a legal custody battle.

  • lala

    LOL Aishwarya Rai is not of Tamil heritage. I’m Tamil and I know that for sure.

  • Pat

    Do you know Oprah personally? She has her own PR team to spin her image any way that makes her more money. Doesn’t mean she’s a genuinely nice or good person.

  • Amber

    She sounds idiotic.

  • lorafaulkner

  • rz715

    Remove the word “like” from your vocabulary, people do not take a person serious when you are saying like, like like every other word.
