Revenge Is Sweet: M.I.A. Tweets Journalist’s Telephone Number

Hmmm, so I guess you don’t want to make M.I.A. upset. Because if you do, she’ll put your personal business on blast.  M.I.A. was angered over an article written about her in the New York Times Magazine. So, she decided to tweet the following:

917.834.3158 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting              917.834.3158      end_of_the_skype_highlighting CALL ME IF YOU WANNA TALK TO ME ABOUT THE N Y T TRUTH ISSUE, ill b taking calls all day b%*ches 😉

This isn’t M.I.A.’s telephone number. She actually tweeted the number of the journalist, Linda Hirschberg, who wrote the article.  We all know what happened next.  Many fans thinking it was M.I.A.’s number called looking for her. In response, Hirschberg said, “It’s a fairly unethical thing to do, but I don’t think it’s surprising. She’s a provocateur, and provocateurs want to be provocative.” Check out the next page to read what was written about M.I.A. that made her so upset…

An excerpt from the New York Time’s Magazine Article written by Linda Hirschberg:

“In one of many contradictions that seem to provide the narrative for Maya’s life and art, Ikhyd was not, as she had repeatedly announced he would be, born at home in a pool of water. As usual, she wanted to transform her personal life into a political statement. “You gotta embrace the pain, embrace the struggle,” she proclaimed weeks before Ikhyd was born. “And my giving birth is nothing when I think about all the people in Sri Lanka that have to give birth in a concentration camp.”

As it happened, Maya, who is 34, gave birth in a private room in Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. “Ben’s family insisted,” she told me a year later, when we met in March for drinks at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, in nearby Beverly Hills. Before the Grammys, Maya and Bronfman moved to Los Angeles from New York, buying a house in very white, very wealthy Brentwood, an isolated and bucolic section of the city with a minimal history of trauma and violent uprisings.”

Hirschberg continues in the article and says that M.I.A. claimed that her father was a Tamil Tiger Freedom fighter and then contradicts this by saying he worked for the Sri Lankan government for over 20 years.  So, from what I’ve gathered, Hirschberg is calling M.I.A a fake.  What do you think?
