MIA Offers Free Concert After Disaster At Hard Festival In NYC
MIA News: MIA Offers Free Show To Fans - Funny or Die Releases Paper Planes Parody Video
UK's foul mouthed music sensation, MIA is offering to kiss and make up with her fans after a disastrous performance at the recent HARD music party festival on Governors Island in New York. Here is what MIA posted on Twitter.
Fuck it! im gonna do a free show in nyc when i get back, tho i dont have powers over rain! if u still have the hard ticket u free! Xxxo." M.I.A. tweeted. She added that she would also admit fans who didn't attend HARD Fest "if you do me a lil dance."
MIA's set was cut short at the HARD festival because of an impending thunder and lightning storm - a potentially dangerous situation. Here is what MIA posted on her Twitter account after her set was cut short.
MIA later told fans through her Twitter page, Twitter.com/_m_i_a_, that lightning was considered a danger to the metal-framed stage, but she refused to go offstage adding: "Fuck that shit."
She also wrote: "Money doesn't buy u s**t! I thought more money means better sound guys in America... I was wrong, the higher u go, they turn u lower !... That still didn't stop us! It's bigger then that!... f**k technology! Even the stage broke + parts of it fell off in the storm."
MIA who is known for speaking her mind, often with a potty mouth - she has oodles of talent but not much discretion like her recent swipe at Lady Gaga
... She models herself on Grace Jones and Madonna, but the music sounds like 20-year-old Ibiza music, you know? She’s not progressive, but she’s a good mimic. She sounds more like me than I fucking do! That’s a talent and she’s got a great team behind her, but she’s the industry last’s stab at making itself important - saying, ‘You need our money behind you, the endorsements, the stadiums’ Respect to her, she’s keeping a hundred thousand people in work, but my belief is: Do It Yourself
So it should come as no surprise then that MIA is not the source of some clever mockery courtesy of the folks at the comedy site Funny or Die
