Maya Arulpragasam aka M.I.A. said she thoughtGaga was “not progressive”, although admitted that she had talent, in the new special edition 10 star cover for NME Magazine. For all those Rihanna fans, she has a cover on NME too.
M.I.A went on to say about Gaga:
“People say we’re similar, that we both mix all these things in the pot and spit them out differently,” she said, “but she spits it out exactly the same. None of her music’s reflective of how weird she wants to be or thinks she is.”
“She models herself onGrace Jones and Madonna but the music sounds like 20 year-old Ibizadisco. She’s not progressive, but she’s a good mimic. She sounds more like me than I fucking do! That’s a talent… but she’s the industry’s last stab at making itself important.”
Words from NME Magazine:
“The special covers have been put together to mark the launch of the new NME. The magazine has been completely revamped with new front, features and reviews sections, plus an update for NME‘s iconic logo.”
