Like someone said in the earlier pages, its nice to see her not portraying the whole bollywood typical south asian image.
I know exactly what you mean, I'm South Indian myself (my grandmother was from Madras and spoke Tamil) and I certainly don't dress and look like what is stereotypically shown. It's nice to see others out there balancing the image.

But M.I.A. is not only different from the bollywood stereotype, she's different from everyone. When I look at her videos I really do feel like she represents the whole 'third world', she's shot them everywhere and they highlight the fact that most of the world lives through the same things. I also love the way she's mashed up Indian music, African music, hip-hop and baile funk and all that to come up with something that reflects what the world is becoming. And I love that she's outspoken about things that people might be too afraid to say these days. She's not scared of offending anyone but she's not mean spirited either. These are just her experiences and despite some of the serious topics she talks about, her music is so full of life.

Jimmy is such an ear bug that I cannot get out of my mind yet.

I got the album a couple of days ago, and I really really like it much better than Arular. It's a bit darker, and more direct, but seems much more like her vision.

Her style is so goofy ... I love her. Her vibe is like a political Kelis. My favorite shot is the one with the monster (?) claws. Thanks for posting those, unipine!

Amazing new album

I thought her idea was to make videos with bad production but it seems she won alot of money with Arular cause now her videos look more "invested" though I still think she's trying to get that image

I suppose you have a window in your room right?
or maybe an easy exit in your house?
GO!
