Who pissed off renegade rapper M.I.A. now? She just posted the private cell number of a journalist on Twitter.com. Supposedly in retaliation for a story the writer did on her that she didn't like.

Update:

According to FUSE TV and MSNBC host Toure (who goes by the handle @Tourex on Twitter), the cell phone number belongs to Lynn Hirschberg who writes for New York magazine.

Hirschberg wrote this unflattering cover story on M.I.A. that was published on May 25th.

Update II, 3:10 pm ET:

Hirschberg has responded to M.I.A. giving out her private cell number on Twitter.

"It's a fairly unethical thing to do, but I don't think it's surprising," she continued. "She's a provocateur, and provocateurs want to be provocative."

Ms. Hirschberg said she wouldn't change her phone number.

"The messages have mostly been from people trying to hook up with M.I.A.," she said. "If she wants to get together with John at Bard next week, I have his number."

In a follow up post titled The Ten Harshest Parts of Lynn Hirschberg’s M.I.A. Profile, the mag called the cover story:

...a fairly brutal takedown in which the singer comes off not unlike a whiny first-semester college kid...

Somewhere in the scathing cover story (which I didn't read in its entirety), Hirschberg calls bullshit on M.I.A.'s political stance, which she considered "attention-seeking, political posturing" behavior.

I've always thought M.I.A. was a fraud. So I can understand why she would be heated about that article.

    If I had not read that it was M. I. A. I would still think it was a pic of Frankie. I don't know who she is other than remember seeing her with a sheer poke a dot dress on and lil Wayne touching her preggo belly making me believe "he was the father".

  • CivilEngineer

    I think she tries WAY to hard to be deep. And if that's how she came off to the writer then why wouldn't the writer make that the cover story. :shrug:

  • ELove

    @Anna
    SHE did a song that appeared on the "Slum-Dog Millionaire" soundtrack WHICH was Tight-as-Hell IMO :wink:

  • CivilEngineer

    :offtopic: Drake's song with AKeys is FIRE! Definitely getting that album!

  • SunnyPA

    That was a long article just to call her out.

  • Cinderella

    @ Elove, She's done way more than that one song. She's best known for "Paper Planes." A line in the song was sampled for T.I.'s "Swagger like Us" hook.

  • jlojones2007

    THAT NUMBER SURE WAS REAL SMH I TRIED JUS TO SEE

  • Princess Smarty-Pants

    :offtopic:

    Sometimes when I listen to my ipod I hear songs from 'other' genres and wonder why someone won't use a regular hook and then write arap over it. Like how Nelly used Slah to play guitars on "#1".

    Just now, I want Trina or Lil Kim to write a rap sampling "Fancy" by reba McEntire.

    Lil Wayne (definitely) maybe Gucci or TI to go over Skid Row's "18 and Life".

    Don't judge me. i jut think we they should have to do something extra every once in awhiler.

    (I know that was left field but who else was I supposed to tell?

  • ELove

    @Cinderella
    Yeah I GOT that track (LUV that Song !!!) :wink:

  • ELove

    The "Paper Planes" song (NOT that T.I. song...) :lol:

  • Avanti

    What part of the game is this?! You disprove people by being better than what they accuse you of... not falling into the trap!

  • OutsidetheBox

    ...so here we have different music...She is not naked, not pus.sy popping, not stealing others stuff (a nod to the Bey hatas)…Her music is for all intents and purposes potent, content-filled rap...but we all: "Harpo who ‘dis woman?" :shrug:

    And then when Sandra post Nikki Minaj, we will be asking for "real conscious rap..."

    I'm so :confused:

  • pinksghetti

    "Paper Planes" was my jam a couple of years ago. I tried to read the article on MIA but it is 9 pages (got up to page 3). I can't be doing all that reading, LOL. The article seems like it tried to paint MIA as trying to be down with the cause while still living a life of luxury. I can see a little why she is mad because it seems to be saying she is a hypocrite or something.

    I can agree. I like when rap music had rock guitars/music playing on it. Examples being "Going Back to Cali" by LL, a lot of Run DMC songs even Jay-z with "99 Problems".

  • Lala11_7

    M.I.A. KILLS ME!!!

    Her music isn't so DIFFERENT...especially if you're used to listening to music from "over there"...I mean REALLY, I thought her latest song was something that Prodigy or Stereo MCs had done (I wanna go HIGHER...ELEVATE MY MIND...that's STILL MY JAM!!!)

    and her political stance...WELL!!!

    So...PLEASE!!!

  • http://totallytiny.com Janay

    i LOVE Mia !!
    Has anyone seen her baby?

  • http://charactercorner.blogspot.com attorneymom

    Is this the girl that sung the hook to Swagger Likes Us or whatever the title of the song is?

  • AprilRain

    @Janay* Me too! I havent seen her baby, do you know who the dad is?

  • OutsidetheBox

    Care to elaborate?

    Its music that isnt talking about booty, cars and gold. That was my point.

  • TruGemini

    I was gonna comment on this but decided to change my mind... :rolleyes:

  • Daisy

    @civil I like the fireworks song but I won't be buying Drakes new cd :nono: u heard the song w/Jay Z?

  • Candi Apple

    All I can remember about this girl is she was pregnant during her entire album release, promotions, video, and performance.

    Sandra, were is the post about Janet J. performance on dancing with the stars? Her non weave short hair cut looked good on TV and she worked it on stage.

  • http://chokolatemilk.blogspot.com Choco

    MIA is okay I like her at times and at times I don't she fell off for me when she was 9 mos pregnant on stage looking foolish but I like who she is as a person at times

  • http://totallytiny.com Janay

    @AprilRain No i don't :/ She had a boy correct?

  • CivilEngineer

    @Daisy...like I told @mean, I didn't mean "buy" :lol:

    And no haven't heard that one yet. I'll look for it later.

  • AprilRain

    @Janay- I think so, I will google her in a bit, after lunch, I will give you info later.

  • kwall

    team MIA.

    she been on the scene for a minute (4-5 years maybe...NOT a newcomer...)

    not only do her fans think she is the biz but she gets MUCH respect from within the industry so.......i guess screw what the reporter thinks? i could be wrong....
