Janelle Monae Performs Via Hologram With M.I.A. & It’s Actually Awesome

Bang, Bang, Bang

Bringing dead celebrities “back to life” via hologram is hella morbid. But the very-much-alive Janelle Monae performing via hologram with M.I.A. on “Bad Girls”? That’s really fucking cool. (Maybe if Justin Bieber only performed via hologram, he would show up to his concerts on time.) [YouTube via AV Club]

Madonna Says M.I.A.’s Behavior Was “Teenager”

“I was really surprised. I didn’t know anything about it. I wasn’t happy about it. I understand it’s punk rock and everything, but to me there was such a feeling of love and good energy, and positivity it seemed negative. It’s such a teenager … irrelevant thing to do…there was such a feeling of love and unity there what was the point? It was just out of place.”

Madonna finally speaks up about rapper M.I.A. flippin’ the bird during their SuperBowl Half-Time Show performance. So, yeah, I totally agree it was juvenile — or that big of a deal. I must admit, I will never understand why anyone would freak out over a middle finger (or pasty-covered nipple) when they’re watching an event in which dudes pummel each other sometimes to the point of incurring serious injury, in between 30-second advertisements that objectify women. Real love and unity type stuff, you know. (Sasha Frere-Jones delves into the matter quite eloquently in a column for The New Yorker this week that’s worth a read.) [Dlisted]

MIA flips the bird photo
  • NBC is very sorry that M.I.A. flipped the bird during the Super Bowl halftime show. And something tells me M.I.A. is going to be very sorry she upstaged Madonna. [Starpulse
  • Katy Perry dedicated her ode to the penis, “Peacock,” to Tim Tebow, of all people, at a pre-Superbowl show. Is she just messing with us now? [Celebitchy]
  • Demi Moore has checked into a second treatment center “for addiction and an eating disorder,” possibly at Cirque Lodge in Utah, sources tell People magazine. [People]
  • Ryan Phillipe is dating a 22-year-old model named Paulina Slagter, who once appeared in an episode of “Entourage.” I’m pretty sure that makes Ryan’s new girlfriend closer to his daughter Ava’s age than his own age. [PopSugar]
  • Charlize Theron and Carey Mulligan are both in the running to play Princess Diana in a biopic of her life, which will be told from the point of view of her former bodyguard. [ONTD] Keep reading »

Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases From M.I.A. To Generationals

It’s new tunes Tuesday! Yay! And even though this week is light on the new music, it’s more like lite. Seriously, this week, the fat has been cut and the three releases I bring you are tasty! First off, M.I.A. has just released a mix tape called Vickileekx in support of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange’s recent trouble with the law. You can download it for free! Despite which side of the debate you’re on, free M.I.A tracks are something we can all support. Yes? No? Well, anyway, Brooklyn-based bombshell Class Actress and New Orleans’ hot dude duo Generationals also both drop new albums today. So, let’s get into the groove, after the jump! Keep reading »

M.I.A’s Increasingly Erratic Behavior

There was a time when I adored M.I.A. I loved her albums, I loved her vibe, I loved her style, I loved her attitude, and I loved that she was politically aware and called attention to a part of the world most of us barely think about. But lately, it seems like homegirl’s behavior has been getting more and more erratic. It all began with that video for “Born Free,” which almost made a good point but took things a few steps too far when it showed a red-headed kid’s brains being blown out at close range. Then came her freak-out over a New York Times Magazine article. Yes, the writer took some jabs at the singer and implied M.I.A. had ordered truffle fries when in fact she had. But was it really worth tweeting the reporter’s cell phone number and writing a nasty song about her?

But this week, her actions have gotten even weirder. Keep reading »
