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."

The Top 15 Most Infamous Concert Riders From Rihanna, J. Lo, Kanye West & More

Kanye West Sighting In Prague
Concert riders are celebrity requests (more like demands) they MUST HAVE in order to perform. Some performers request alcohol, some request clothing and some request food. While on the other hand, some celebs demand more extreme riders, like 100 doves, personal chefs, rolling papers and condoms. Yes, celebrities are known for being high maintenance, but just how far is too far on their concert riders? And who’s responsible for all of these crazy r ...

Sean Penn & Charlize Theron want to get married & adopt another kid… soon.

5th Anniversary Of Michael Jackson's Death
As we keep seeing, Charlize Theron and Sean Penn are really, really loved up. It’s disconcerting for all of us out here in the cheap seats, but I’ll give them both a little bit of credit. Sean genuinely seems to have chilled out a great deal with Charlize and it’s like we’re seeing a whole new (nice? happy?) person. As for Charlize… would she stick with it if she wasn’t getting something out of it? No. She would not. So, Charlize and Sean are real. A ...
