Rapper, M.I.A, ISN’T FEELING Lady Gaga Either!

Well Gaga has been getting a lot of hate mail and angry responses lately for her antics…..and it appears that “swagger like us” rapper, M.I.A, who blew up like 2 years ago……isn’t too big on Gaga either……just go ahead and add her name to the top of that growing and long list of Gaga haters. From what she stated in a recent interview…..it seems like she’s basically calling her fake and honestly I agree. M.I.A calls her out for advertising a whole bunch of products (a.k.a product placement) in her music videos……..meaning she’s just about the benjamins…..not the music….she says a lot more below. Check out the excerpt:

Do we still need record labels?

Are they even interested in making money from music anymore? Lady Gaga plugs 15 things in her new video. Dude, she even plugs a burger! That’s probably how they’re making money right now – buying up the burger joint, putting the burger in a music video and making loads of burger money.

Do you think those programmes and the internet have destroyed the mythology around popstars?

I don’t know. Again, there’s 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! None of her music’s reflective of how weird she wants to be or thinks she is. 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. She sounds more like me than I f*cking do! That’s a talent and she’s got a great team behind her, but she’s the industry last stab at making itself important – saying, ‘You need our money behind you, the endorsements, the stadiums’ Respect to her, she’s keeping a hundred thousand people in work, but my belief is: Do It Yourself.

How important are image and visuals to your music?

Very. But it’s not like “Haus of Gaga” (laughs). Me blindfolded with naked men feeding me apples and sh*t. Would you ever make a record for a Twilight soundtrack? They asked me. Luckily Jimmy [Iovine, chairmen of M.I.A.’s US label Interscope] had beef with the Twilight people, so he stepped in and told them to f*ck off.

MY PERSPECTIVE: Everything today is watered down and everybody’s selling something. If you go to the theater these days and watch a movie…..if you really analyze it you can see product placement in every aspect of the film. I mean…..whole scripts exist that are written entirely around and for products like Coca Cola. These major companies will go to a production company and say….”I want a whole movie script written and then filmed revolving around or about my product”…..and they’ll do it. So when u go to the movies and think ur watching something creatively done……it’s really just a 2 hour advertisment for products. So I agree with M.I.A……Gaga’s full of sh*t…..she’s a hustler like everybody else…..but it is what it is. And honestly I ain’ too big on M.I.A. either because from what I read last year…..she wasn’t allowed to enter the U.S. to record her new album because she is a supporter of modern terrorist groups…..that’s all she raps about. So she can go somewhere too!
