She has never been known as one to hold back when it comes to sharing her views, so we're not surprised to hear that singer M.I.A took a few swipes in her latest interview, for Rolling Stone magazine.

We are, however, pretty shocked by what she has to say about her DJ ex, Diplo who, according to the Paper Planes singer, was insanely jealous of her success.

Asked about the early milestones in her career, the 39-year-old – who dated Diplo on and off for five years – said that he "sh*t on every good thing that was happening" for her.

"I just didn't enjoy it because if I was on the cover of a magazine, he'll be like, 'What do you want to do, like, be on the dentist waiting room table? Like, is that what a magazine is for? It's corny. Like, don't do magazines,'" she recalled.

She also recounted a terrifying incident where Diplo, real name Thomas Wesley Pentz, smashed up her hotel room out of rage after she got signed by a major label.

"When I got signed by Interscope, he literally smashed my hotel room and broke all the furniture because he was so angry I got picked up by a major label, and it was the corniest thing in the world that could possibly happen…So the whole two years I was with him, I just let him dictate," she added.

She says that it is only now that she realises it was jealousy that was driving her ex on.

"He couldn't wait to be Taylor Swift's best friend and date Katy Perry. But at that time I believed him. I just felt like he was right, and he was something of a political, righteous person with some values. I didn't realize it was just jealousy," she said.

Wow, that is quite the revelation. While the pair have always insisted that they are good friends, we reckon Diplo may not be too happy to learn that the truth is now out there.



The line up for this year’s Glastonbury festival has been revealed and it looks great.

The list includes big names such as: Lana Del Rey, Ed Sheeran, M.I.A., Lily Allen, Arcade Fire, Rudimental and even the legendary Dolly Parton.

The festival will take place from June 25th to June 29th.

Here’s a list of all the acts performing, we can’t wait.




When you’re short of a few quid, there’s no harm in turning to a cash-rich pal for a hand out, but asking Madonna for a $16 million loan is taking it a bit far.

Rapper M.I.A (real name Mathangi Arulpragasam) has taken to Twitter to ask Madge for a loan of $16 million after the NFL demanded she pay that amount in compensation for flipping the bird during the 2012 Super Bowl half-time show.

M.I.A. has claimed that her performance pales in comparison to Michael Jackson’s 1993 Super Bowl show when he, “repeatedly grabbed or fondled his genitalia especially while he sang Billie Jean.”

None-the-less, English-Sri Lankan rapper’s impromptu gesture during her performance of Give Me All Your Luvin’ alongside Madonna, has gotten her into a lot of hot water and she’s turned to her buddy for a dig out.

The Born Free rapper tweeted, “@madonna ummm ….. can I borrow 16 million ?”

We assume M.I.A is joking but you never know, the Material Girl might be feeling generous.
