MIA has been copping a bit of flak of late. If you've visited this blog before you know I'm a huge fan.
Let me bottom line a few things. Firstly, one of the things I like about MIA is that she has a point of view. That's a good (and rare) thing these days. We've been conditioned otherwise.
It's a complicated time that we live in and I think that MIA gets into trouble partly because she's a provocateur by nature (as are many of us) and partly because she has a tendency to conflate different issues (don't we all).
In between being bollocked on social media, she's been teasing at a new project and leaked a 14 second run of a project which as always has those multi layered images and her own unique spin on music.
I'm curious and hope that the tide turns a bit more in her favour as the weeks pass. She's well and truly an underdog and is too interesting to ignore.
