M.I.A. is Penning a Memoir

Most people aren’t anywhere near contemplating a memoir at the age of 36, but if we know anything about M.I.A., it’s that she doesn’t play by anyone else’s rules — and actually, we’re about to know a lot more about her, because she’s planning to publish an autobiography.

Due for release in October, the book is being referred to by the publisher as an “autobiographical monograph in collages” and is said to include 192 pages, more than 300 images, and a number of “unpublished testimonies” from M.I.A.

The book will be part of a multimedia blitz for M.I.A. this year — she’s also in the midst of working on her fourth album, due for release later in 2012 and already preceded by the single and video ‘Bad Girls.’ Though details are still being kept under wraps, NME.com reports that M.I.A.’s rumored collaborators on the disc include Swizz Beats, Cataracs and Chris Brown.

These are busy times for the singer/songwriter, no doubt, but she wasn’t too busy to spark a feud with CNN anchor Anderson Cooper earlier this week, taking to Twitter to accuse him of calling her a terrorist. Fittingly, Cooper claimed not to have any idea what she was talking about.
