M.I.A Gets Political... Again
The rapper/singer speaks out on the recent election...
Controversial rapper/singer M.I.A. has recently spoken out in regards to the recent Prime Minister David Cameron's election campaign. The XXXO singer explained in a recent interview that she saw the Conservative campaign as being deeply influenced by the United States.
She told NME Magazine: "The Tory campaign seems to be following the Democratic campaign in America. People saying words and stuff, like, 'If you vote for me you will get change'. And maybe with some change we might give you some hope. It's really funny to see the same slogans being used but in a more long-winded way. At the same time, I don’t know, I think it's so in your face, the billboards and stuff."
She added: "That campaign's pretty crazy. That people are slanderous to each other. Politics isn't politics any more. Policies and all that shit, it's never been explained to people properly and I think it's an interesting time. It's interesting because you can have a one-to-one connection and comment and blog about it and ask people questions, but at the same time England's always been following America to an extent. We're just a little bit behind."
