M.I.A. Has a Hit!


After a Coachella meltdown and an announcement that her music career is over (for now), M.I.A.'s "Paper Planes" has skyrocketed to #36 on this week's Billboard Hot 100. Of course the rumours of her demise are frivolous and she'll be back with a killin' album no later than early 2010 (trust!), more likely - late 2009. But in the meantime, relive the single of 2007, currently a hit at car washes across the nation - "Paper Planes".

Good! I love KALA and Arular - good to see her best song rocketing in the billboard chart as well!

She said something about not touring ever again, but just wanted to work on albums - I think that's fair enough. Besides, she's marrying the guy from the Exit right?
Ciao, cool blog!

Hell Yeah!!This song is sweet!

Everyday, even in Krock and can listen to this song now. She's really exploding.

Did you checked the lyrics?

"...This is MIA
A third world democracy
I got more records than the KGB.." - Third world democracy? Are you talking about siri lanka?

"....All I wanna do (BANG BANG BANG BANG)
And a (CLICK CHING)

Universal Music Group pulled her song off the trailer of their new film Pineapple Express... is this the start of the end of MIA's music career in the US?

Rumor has it that Canada is strongly considering banning MIA from entering the country due to her possible terrorist connections.

The US refused MIA's visa numerous times, they need to yank it out of her hand on her way out of the country!

And I just found this link to E-Entertainment TV's website:

E-Online has posted the article about MIA and we need to have 300 comments on their page BY THE END OF TODAY in order to get their attention and further featuring on their site.

You can make a difference right now! Please go to this link right away and express your opinion, this is a pivotal time in this campaign to get the
truth out about M.I.A. and her song "Paper Planes"!
