To the majority of the TV-set-owning world, she's known as the (who's that?) girl who flipped the bird during Madonna's halftime performance at Super Bowl XLVI, setting off a legal firestorm with the FCC so ridiculous you'd think she flashed her nipple on live TV in front of a billion people.
M.I.A. steers away from the technicolor closeups featured in her 'Y.A.L.A.' video from last year and returns to the more familiar, and chaotic, documentary approach in the new 'Double Bubble Trouble' clip.
Whether it's lyrics, rants or just a little flip of the bird, M.I.A. doesn't shy away from throwing things in our faces. So for her latest video, 'Y.A.L.A.', she takes the idea of color to another level, leaving us shellshocked by the end.
In the year and a half since Super Bowl XLVI, M.I.A. has been battling the NFL over punishment for what the league deems an offensive gesture made during the halftime show, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Alternative rapper M.I.A. is a cultural lightning rod, whether she's talking politics or making comments about other musicians in the media. She's also dealing with some pretty intense drama in her personal life regarding her child and her ex. A court has banned M.I.A. from taking her son, Ikhyd, whom she gave birth to three days after a Grammy performance in 2009, out of the country.
