The 2009 Grammy Awards were filled with drama this year. One barely sidestepped event was M.I.A.’s baby . She was having light contractions on and off while at the event, but managed to pull through. The “ Paper Planes ” artist even performed! A few hours after the awards were over she went into full labor . She gave birth to a baby boy and we have yet to hear his name. However the photo of her little guy has hit the net. The birth of her first [...]
I fly like paper, get high like planes If you catch me at the border I got visas in my name If you come around here, I make 'em all day I get one down in a second if you wait I never thought I'd love an M.I.A. song as much as I love the hazy summery "Paper Planes," but in a year in which M.I.A. [...]
Congrats to M.I.A. who was nominated for a Grammy last night for her smash hit, "Paper Planes." I was super ecstatic to stumble across the soundtrack for Danny Boyle's new film, Slumdog Millionaire , last night to discover that M.I.A. has a hand in it. Goodie gumdrops! Here's what she had to about the soundtrack say in a recent interview with MTV: M.I.A noted that she had just announced her retirement plans at Bonaroo when Boyle called her and offered the gig. “How could I [...]
M.I.A. 'Paper Planes.' ...making major inroads in the U.S. too. Surely her time is now...loving that Clash sample as well...
The Clash "Straigh To Hell" M.I.A. "Paper Planes"
... of retirement. Gettin' his fix - Tabloid Junkie.
Definitely not the newest joint to hit the sound waves, but I reckoned you needed in on this. Because I've been walking around my house singing "pirates, skulls, and bones" for the past week, it'd be wrong of me to not share the wealth. In any case, I'm sure you'll appreciate this one (Stef, what up!).
A couple of months ago, British rapper M.I.A cancelled her imminent UK tour and hinted at the fact that she may never play a gig again. Having toured second album, Kala, relentlessly for a good twelve months things came to ahead in America (where the album has sold a lot better then it has on home soil) and M.I.A picked up her toys and hurled them out the pram. Probably not the best time then for single 'Paper Planes' to be shooting up the American Billboard 100 on the back of it being used in a trailer for [...]
Pineapple Express comes out today, here's the song from the trailer. Enjoy!
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". M.I.A. - Paper Planes (music video)
Mr. S came onto my blog one day and schooled me about M.I.A. I've been a fan ever since. Anyway, her song, Paper Planes, has been featured on trailers for the movie, Pineapple Express (I haven't been poking around YouTube for it; don't ask). As a result, it debuted on Billboard's Hot 100 all the way up at #55 . AFT!!! Somewhere, Joe Strummer is smiling and Mick Jones is counting his sample royalties...

Someone call a priest! Or a faith healer. Or that faux-sage who kidnapped Elizabeth Smart. And get me the number for Alcoholics Anonymous. And one of those tube necklaces that glow. I’m in deep, man. Balls deep. Loss of control, loss of appetite, loss of direction. I need a fix--just one little toke
ZACH DE LA ROCHA SIDE PROJECT DEBUTS Zach de la Rocha of Rage Against the Machine fame is finally debuting a song from his side project One Day As A Lion with former Mars Volta drummer Jon Theodore. Named after the infamous graffiti which read "It’s better to live one day as a lion, than a thousand years as a lamb," the band clearly has retained the radical politics of Rage while providing for a more stripped down drum-and-bass aesthetic. The song "Wild International" is [...]
We're sorry we can't help change the fact that M.I.A. 's show tonight in Lawrence is sold out -- after all, you'd have probably gotten laid afterwards. Damn shame. Drop by Minneapolis' City Pages for a slideshow of the British/Sri Lankan firebrand's show last night at the Myth. And there's always YouTube. "Paper Planes" by M.I.A. "Boyz"
I'm going from yakkers to knuckleballs. Here's M.I.A. Loud, brash, and insidiously catchy. I like it. Watch for more posts out of me the next couple days.
Holy Fuck @ Music Hall of Williamsburg - March 22, 2008 ( selftitled ) Holy Fuck and M.I.A. are playing McCarren Park Pool in Brooklyn on June 6th (which is awesome). BUT, although there will be free shows at McCarren this summer , this is not one of them (unlike last time M.I.A. showed up at McCarren ). Tickets go on sale March 29th . M.I.A. 's other two upcoming [...]
I don't know how to say this so here it comes, I'm not a fan of M.I.A; I mean I see why people like her and I think she is a gorgeous girl, but for some reason I don't like her music. Recently I found two remixes of her song "Paper Planes" one by Holly Fuck and the other one by DFA personally I think both remixes help the song become a bit more interesting; although I personally like the Holly Fuck version better because it brings a little punk edge to it. Here is a link to [...]
