M.I.A. Gets ‘Real’
On this week’s episode of Real Time with Bill Maher, the versatile singer/producer M.I.A. shared her story of fleeing from Sri Lanka as a young woman. It’s amazing to think about her roots and where she is today. I was definitely impressed by her poise and lack of affectation in the interview.
She seems like a genuine person (unlike, say, Lady Gaga) and holds her own with Bill Maher, who tries his damndest to make the discussion funny. He is especially tickled by her “cockney accent”.
