M.I.A. on Lady Gaga: She's a Mimic

Lady Gaga is everyone’s favorite artist at the moment. Except for M.I.A. that is! M.I.A. isn’t a big fan of the off-the-wall singer, and she’s not afraid to say what she thinks!

M.I.A. believes Gaga is nothing but a “mimic” and "the industry's last stab at making itself important".

In an interview with NME, M.I.A. said, "There's Gaga - people say we're similar, that we both mix all these things in the pot and spit them out differently, but she spits it out exactly the same. None of her music's reflective of how weird she wants to be. She models herself on Grace Jones and Madonna, but the music sounds like a 20-year-old Ibiza disco.

M.I.A. doesn’t seem to impressed with the comparisons she gets to Gaga either. "She's not progressive, but she's a good mimic. She sounds more like me than I f***ing do!" she added.

"She's got a great team behind her, but she's the industry's last stab at making itself important - saying, 'you need our money behind you, the endorsements, the stadiums'. Respect to her, she's kept a thousand people working, but my belief is Do-It-Yourself."

Wow! She really ripped Gaga a new one! We think Gaga is extremely innovative, and never does the same thing twice—that’s why everyone loves her! Do you agree with M.I.A.?
