Bad Girls do it Well.
I’m rocking out to M.I.A’s latest hit “Bad Girls”. Catchy beat & a visually exotic music video filmed in Morocco, the #1 country currently on my To-Travel list. Her latest controversy was her middle-finger at the Superbowl half-time performance with Madonna which I didn’t think twice about. Who Cares. Move on!
She’s an audacious celebrity that uses her music, art, fashion & movies to boldly educate audiences on her political stance & what’s going on in the World. I mean hey, with her upbringing, I don’t blame her! She was born in London and moved to Sri Lankan at an early age with her family. Her father became a political activist for the minority Tamil Tigers party, to address systematic discrimination against Tamils. In the first decade of her life, her family was constantly displaced by the Sri Lankan army, schools she attended were shot at and lived in major poverty throughout her childhood.
Esquire magazine ranked M.I.A. on its list of the 75 most influential people of the 21st century and Time magazine named her one of the world’s most influential people. She’s def a force not to be reckoned with. I love Women with power, who use their power to empower more woman and really don’t give a ish about the lame societal norm.
This video portrays that Bad-ass Gangsta chic we all have in us. Reminds me of Fast & the Furious in the middle-east with some Bhangra beats and the usual lyrical Rap she’s so well known for. Another irony is how she’s freely dancing on the street as a female with Arab men all along as back-up dancers. Imagine the middle-east like that! Hum along… “Live Fast die Young… Bad girls do it Well.. Live fast die Young.. Bad girls do it well.”
