“I’m fine with Madonna or Beyoncé or Rihanna being ‘inspired’ by my work”, she told the publication. “But I would like them to then go, ‘Yeah, this immigrant who came out of nowhere influenced us, so maybe not all of them are f**king terrible.”

The 41-year-old continued: “They don’t even think like that. They go ‘Yeah, maybe me stealing the stuff says she’s all right. She should be thankful we’re stealing it’. “But sometimes you just think, ‘Fuck, I have to pay some bills,’ you know?”

British-born M.I.A, who grew up in Sri Lanka, went on to suggest that Beyoncé’s route to international stardom was easy, adding: “Beyoncé comes from the school of Michael Jackson-ness. Where the family built an entire world to support you. From when you were a child. I never had that luxury.”

“I’ve you’re working class, music doesn’t belong to you like it used to – it would be really hard for Oasis to happen now.”

She added: “I’m just fodder. A template for pop stars to create more content. We constantly feed the top of the pyramid.”

!! OMG, LISTEN TO THIS: The Hidden Cameras return with some country twang on ‘Feeling Bout You’ !!

Yee-haw! The Hidden Cameras are back with their latest album, Home On Native Land, which is a little bit country and a little bit rock n roll. Says frontman Joel Gibb about his latest video for ‘FEELIN BOUT YOU‘:

The video was shot very quickly, while I was shooting the album cover. Two reels of super 8, not a lot for editor GB Jones to work with. She did a fantastic job. The video turns the meaning of the song to the self, as I am actually shooting myself with the camera at times, and seeing myself suddenly in a mirror as I wander the wilderness; a critical eye, an understanding eye. The good and bad together. The video is also shot by others which gives it the feeling that I am not alone. I forgot how much I love super 8 and it fits the mood of the song. A soft-rock ballad for 70s AM country radio.

Check out the clip directed by Gibb himself, above!

!! OMG, RIP: Icon and legendary singer Leonard Cohen !!

cw8fzdew8aa3-4n

Leonard Cohen, hugely prolific singer and songwriter whose work spanned close to 50 years, has passed away at the age of 82. Cohen’s label, Sony Music Canada, confirmed his death on the singer’s Facebook page, and his family, son and manager released statements regarding the icon’s death saying:

“It is with profound sorrow we report that legendary poet, songwriter and artist, Leonard Cohen has passed away,” the statement read.

“We have lost one of music’s most revered and prolific visionaries. A memorial will take place in Los Angeles at a later date. The family requests privacy during their time of grief. My father passed away peacefully at his home in Los Angeles with the knowledge that he had completed what he felt was one of his greatest records,” Cohen’s son Adam wrote in a statement to Rolling Stone. “He was writing up until his last moments with his unique brand of humour.”

“Unmatched in his creativity, insight and crippling candor, Leonard Cohen was a true visionary whose voice will be sorely missed,” his manager Robert Kory wrote in a statement. “I was blessed to call him a friend, and for me to serve that bold artistic spirit firsthand, was a privilege and great gift. He leaves behind a legacy of work that will bring insight, inspiration and healing for generations to come.”

A cause of death has not yet been released, but he was 82!

RIP, Leonard! Seeing you perform was one of the most-memorable and beautiful evenings we can recall!
