M.I.A. tweets journo’s phone number after unflattering story

Hollywoodnews.com: Have you ever been so upset at someone that you desired to ruin their life? Is there a line you’d refuse to cross to get that person back?

These are questions singer M.I.A. had to answer before she vengefully posted the phone number of a journalist who’d penned an unfavorable profile to her Twitter account.

“Call me if you wanna talk to me about the N Y T Truth Issue. I’ll b taking calls all day, bitches,” the post said, including reporter Lynn Hirschberg’s phone number. Hirschberg wrote about the antagonistic singer in this week’s New York Times Magazine.

Fair or foul? It can’t hurt Hirschberg. At the most, it’s a major inconvenience that can be corrected by changing her phone number. But why did M.I.A. have the number in the first place? Either way, it’s a childish prank, regardless of how she felt about Hirschberg’s article published in this week’s New York Times Magazine.

    Considering the type of “journo” Hirschberg is, and the article she put out passing off a vengeful ex’s opinions as commentary on M.I.A.’s career, the former got off lucky.

    Was Hirschberg a bit underhanded? Sure. She even got lazy and used the same discrediting tactic she just used on Megan Fox (future interviewees had best stay away from truffle fries). But she also generated a hilarious meme currently being carried out on Twitter by two of pop’s funniest loudmouths. And in the end, isn’t that all that really matters?
