Source: RTT News
M.I.A. set off a potential war of words with Lady Gaga this week, dismissing Gaga and her music. In an interview with NME, M.I.A. said that Gaga'smusic doesn't reflect her image. "Lady Gaga — people say we're similar, that we both mix all these things in the pot and spit them out differently, but she spits it out exactly the same!" she said. "None of her music's reflective of how weird she wants to be or thinks she is." She also criticized Gaga's modeling herself on other artists, saying, "She models herself on Grace Jones and Madonna, but the music sounds like 20-year-old Ibiza music, you know? She's not progressive, but she's a good mimic." M.I.A. also railed against the amount of product placement in Gaga's "Telephone" video, and likened the work of Gaga's creative team as "me blindfolded with naked men feeding me apples and s**t."
