M.I.A. attacks New York Times writer in “I’m a Singer”

HollywoodNews.com: M.I.A. took over the charts in 2008 with her single “Paper Planes.” The singer and artist has been known to posses political lyricism, so there’s no surprise that her latest song entitled, “I’m a Singer” blasts someone.

The unlucky soul is New York Times writer Lynn Hirschberg, who recently compared M.I.A.’s lifestyle to her connection as a “terrorist,” reports Reuters. The song boasts lyrics such as “So you wanna hear about my politics? I can show you things that would make you sick. And the story’s always f***ed by the time it hits/And why the hell would journalists be thick as s**t?/’Cause lies equals power equals politics.”

M.I.A. got so angry by the article that she went to twitter to post Hirschberg’s cell number for readers to call in and complain. Hirschberg commented on the stunt as “fairly unethical.”

It looks like this feud isn’t going to be ending anytime soon.
