Okay, so why is no one talking about M.I.A?
Is it because her name is hard to search? (I get it, you’re not sure whether to include the periods or just go with the simple Americanized “Mia”; it’s a common struggle) Is it because she hasn’t received the proper publicity? (false, she’s been endorsed by Kanye himself and also featured in the fucking Super Bowl) Is her music just not good? (false, have you heard Bad Girls or Paper Planes????) Have I been following the right blogs? Where is her part in the so-called culture of “tumblr feminism”? Or is it because of her radical-ass politics? Yeah, I think it’s most likely the latter.
