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."

Mary Lambert on Body Politics, Coming Out as Gay and Christian, and Her New Album

Sep 26 2014 3:35pm CDT | Source: Pop Sugar

People might love a good overnight success story, but in truth, Mary Lambert's isn't one. The 25-year-old was well known in the spoken-word poetry scene - even performing on an HBO special as a teen - and had been independently releasing her own music before fellow Seattleites Macklemore and Ryan Lewis asked her to pen the hook to what would become their radio hit "Same Love." Of course, the mainstream ode to marginalized romance prop ...
