MIA: I'm Madonna and Rotten

Oct 29 2013, 12:34pm CDT | by Bang Showbiz

M.I.A. believes she is a cross between Madonna and Sex Pistols singer Johnny Rotten.

The 'Paper Planes' hitmaker - real name Mathangi Arulpragasam - says as an artist she is like the 'Material Girl' singer as she can create all different types of music, but she has a rebellious side like punk rocker Rotten, real name John Lydon.

In an interview with UK station BBC Radio 1, she said: "People come up to me and say, 'Oh my God it's a thin line, you could either be Madonna or Jonny Rotten' ... I'm both, that's what it is."

M.I.A. has previously collaborated with Madonna on the track 'Give Me All Your Luvin'' on her 2012 album 'MDNA'.

However, their relationship was soured when M.I.A. caused controversy by flipping her middle finger at a camera their performance at the Super Bowl XLVI NFL half-time show in February 2012, an action Madonna described as "negative" and "out of place".

M.I.A was eventually fined $1.5 million fine by the NFL for her actions - a punishment she branded "a massive waste of time".

The 38-year-old musician fumed: "[There is] a row of 10-15 cheerleaders, young black females, that Madonna got from a local high school in Indianapolis, and they were all under 16. If you look at them, they're all wearing cheerleader outfits, hips thrust in the air, legs wide open, in this very sexually provocative position.

"So, now, they're scapegoating me into figuring out the goalposts on what is offensive in America.

"That's basically what it comes down to. It's a massive waste of time, a massive waste of money ... They want me on my knees and say sorry so they can slap me on my wrist."

First Listen: Leonard Cohen, 'Popular Problems'

Sep 14 2014 11:03pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

Leonard Cohen is not a man for manifestos. Peripatetic bohemian, Montreal native, Zen meditator, diaspora Jew: Rock's almost-octogenarian philosopher emeritus inhabits identities that are multiple, contested, and resistant to orthodoxy. He is, however, willing to lay some things on the line. "I'm slowing down the tune, I never liked it fast," he intones over a burlesque blues line in ...

London Fashion Week SS15: Saturday

Sep 14 2014 4:56am CDT | Source: Clash Music

Notes on the London fashions.Louise Gray’s influence was well communicated in Lulu & Co’s Spring Summer 15 collection. Noted as Kennedy (Lulu, of Fashion East, whom founded the label)’s Creative Consultant, her aesthetic shone through via foil textures, sequin details and colourful (almost scientific esc) prints; fantastic tinsel covered hoops sealed the deal. The ‘Rave Cave’ set up – part Andy Warhol’s factory (the multiple silver balloons), part 4am in a field ...

Is Mariah Carey seeking a boytoy?

Sep 12 2014 3:34pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon broke up, and for once, there was nothing Mariah could do to save her marriage and avoid divorce. Trust me, her ego didn't take kindly to that fact, and she's struggling immensely with the end of her relationship with Nick.Contrary to popular opinion, it was neither her ego nor her diva antics that were the catalyst for their divorce (although I'm sure they played their part). According to our sources, it was mo ...
