M.I.A. speaks on Lady Gaga

“Very. But it’s not like “Haus of Gaga” (laughs). Me blindfolded with naked men feeding me apples and ….”

is what M.I.A.’s response was to NME’s question in a recent interview. M.I.A. was asked, How important are image and visuals to your music?

M.I.A. goes on to comment about her style and music:

“None of her music’s reflective of how weird she wants to be or thinks she is. She models herself on Grace Jones and Madonna, but the music sounds like 20-year-old Ibiza music, you know? She’s not progressive, but she’s a good mimic…. That’s a talent and she’s got a great team behind her, but she’s the industry’s last stab at making itself important – saying, ‘You need our money behind you, the endorsements, the stadiums.’ Respect to her, she’s keeping a hundred thousand people in work, but my belief is: Do It Yourself.”

– “In my opinion M.I.A. is right, Lady Gaga goes to far”
