M.I.A. Double-Disses Lady Gaga and Oprah Winfrey

M.I.A. Double-Disses Lady Gaga and Oprah Winfrey-photo

M.I.A. is getting to be pretty efficient with her trash-talking. The controversial "Paper Planes" singer, who earlier this year raised eyebrows by dismissing Lady Gaga as a Madonna rip-off, has once again taken a public swipe at the Pantless One—and this time she's thrown in a jab at beloved talk-show host/one-woman empire Oprah Winfrey for good measure.

During a recent interview with Time Out magazine (via 411mania), the British songbird recounted a chilly encounter with Winfrey, and dismissed the media mogul's praise of the "Poker Face" chanteuse:

"Oprah seemed like she was giving me the cold shoulder. She was with Iman (Bowie). Iman was always dancing with me, hugging and kissing me, but Oprah seemed really p*ssed off with me. Also she made this huge speech at the ball praising Lady Gaga and about how she (Lady Gaga) is helping Americans to be the best of themselves. There's millions of other Americans who represent that for me. Is (it) about numbers? About how much you're selling? Is it truly about the journey? Because (Lady Gaga's) journey isn't that difficult: to go from the f*cking Upper East Side to a f*cking performing arts school and on to a stage at the museum of f*cking wherever. That journey's about four miles."

It remains to be seen how far M.I.A. will have to journey in order to avoid the wrath of Oprah's rabid fan base, after they get wind of this. Oh, and speaking of "Paper Planes" ...

    wtf is a "proper freshie"? i like the way MIA talks though, about 4 miles...lol. but she is pretty right. lady gaga has been rich her whole life and even now she gets by on a lame dress up fake act

    But, like, isn't MIA married to a billionaire, so her life isn't all that hard. MIA's been trying to "make it" for years and even with a Madonna collab under her belt, people still don't know who she is. I can see why she's so upset.

    M.I.A. has mass appeal within the underground, indie music scene. She may be a "1 hit wonder" in mainstream media but she is more than just Paper Planes. She uses references of politics, cultures, philosophy in her lyrics which, in most cases, would make any song by any artist not radio friendly...M.I.A. Is a bad girl who does it well.

  • dont call me a hater cuz i hav better taste than u

    mia's not a sellout. her songs arent about sex, love, boys, and other generic things gaga sings about constantly. she's much deeper and for that i have respect for her which i cant say for many of the other "artists" in the music industry.

    MIA needs to calm the f*ck down. Lady gaga worked her ass off to get where she is, just like MIA did. I dont understand why she has to be hating. Thats very shallow. I like how Lady gaga didnt respond to MIA's bullsh*t because lady gaga is being mature about it, in another words, MIA GROW the f*ck up. Whether you love these girls or hate em, dissing on another artist is so f*cking dumb.

    @Walé Hennerfriend How eloquent. 1. I was agreeing with M.I.A on the fact that there are other people whose journeys are more important. 2. I never claimed to be enlightened to any extent on how LG had it so easy. 3. So what if she never used her parents money to get to the top - she always had them to fall back. 4. Yes I have hear heard her albums. The Fame is good for what it is - ear worm music with no true substance. As for The Fame Monster ,it isn't as good. 5. I'll continue with my negativity as long there continues to be more glorification of women who are perceived as sexy. That is an injustice that you, as a man, will never be able to fully understand. 6. I wasn't talking, I was writing. 7. If I was talking, I could do so perfectly well with a tampon shoved up my arse. Thank you.

    @afropeanut i love how you think your so enlightened on how gaga had it so easy. yes she did grow up in a wealthy family, and yes she did go to a very nice school. but she didn't use her parents money to get to the top, her parents actually didn't approve of her performances when she first got big. and the school she went too actually had nothing to do with her getting a record deal. she had too work her way up to the top, ever since she was like fourteen. ooh, and the crap your saying about her song writing skills? have you ever heard her music or any of her other songs that haven't hit number one? because they're amazing and inspirational. and yes some might say that shes attention seeking, but i just think shes herself. so before you try to talk next time, how about you try not to talk like you shoved your tampon up your ass and not be so negative just because shes well liked. thank you.

    Ok just last year, M.I.A. was praising Oprah and now this??? This bitch is a f*cking adult who is crying so much while she has her album released. What an ungrateful person. Suck it up! She doesn't give a sh*t about her music, because if she did, she wouldn't be in such a pissy, jealous, hateful mood all the time. If you want to go back to India, sh*t on the side of a residential road, and drink filthy water, maybe you will enjoy that more than your so-called career???? Tasteless...

    AMEN!!I'm not a fan of MIA but I totally agree with her about Lady Here's-my-vagina- Gaga.I don't get why people are so obsessed with her. She's boring - it's always the same sh*t with her: six outfit changes at awards shows, nudity, outrageous attention-seeking outfits, 'controversial' videos, silly comments.Granted she can sing but as for her songwriting abilities - 2/5.'Let's have some fun/ this beat is sick/I wanna take a ride on your disco stick''I want your drama/I want your disease/I want your everything as long as it's free''You know that I love you boy/Hot like Mexico'Her songs are mostly tripe accompanied by really hot beats. It wouldn't bother me if she'd just admit that her 'art' is rubbish but she insists on trying to make her music seem so much more important than it is. Like when the video for telephone was released she said something along the lines of 'This video is going to be revolutionary/it's about right's for homosexuals/I'm so proud of it/I wanna make history blah blah blah...' - THE SONG IS ABOUT A GIRL WHO DOESN'T WANT TO ANSWER HER TELEPHONE IN THE f*cking CLUB. I wish people like Florence (of Florence and the Machine), Feist, La Roux and Speech DB who are real artists would get half the exposure that the likes of Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Beyonce get but they never do. Why? Because they don't show all they're bits and bobs. Totally

    i wish MIA would just shut the f*ck up! She's just hating bc lady gaga's been blowing up since she came out. & MIA has like one song. get a f*cking life. if you wanna be popular stop dissing women. there's already enough of that in the world. especially women that are doing something for themselves && showing some of these little girls out here that have low self esteem that you truly can do anything. if you wanna be popular try putting out another song you one hit f*cking wonder!
