FASHION WARS, Musician Edition: M.I.A. Vs. Lady Gaga
M.I.A. has a bone to pick with Lady Gaga — well, actually a few bones. She first called Gaga “a good mimic,” who is talented only at copying the likes of Madonna and Grace Jones, and now M.I.A. has taking to criticizing Gaga’s entire career path.
In a recent Time Out London interview, M.I.A. went on a rant about Oprah Winfrey‘s love for Gaga.
“[Oprah] made this huge speech at the ball praising Lady Gaga about how she is helping Americans to be the best of themselves,” M.I.A. said. “There’s millions of other Americans who represent that for me. Is [it] about numbers? About how much you’re selling? Is it truly about the journey? Because [Lady Gaga's] journey isn’t that difficult: to go from the f—ing Upper East Side to a f—ing performing arts school and onto a stage at the museum of f—ing wherever. That journey’s about four miles.”
So what is to be done to settle the feud that M.I.A. has fueled? Simple: a good, hearty edition of Fashion Wars.
