Following revelations that the NSA is spying on our phone calls, texts, Google history, Facebook profiles and who knows what else,Maya Arulpragasam (M.I.A.) is taking some time to remind the world she knew it all along, Fuse TV reports.
Back in 2010, her Maya album opener “The Message” linked our hyper-connected online lives to government oversight with the following lyrics: “Your headphones connected to your iPhone / Your iPhone’s connected to the Internet / The Internet’s connected to the Google / The Google’s connected to the Government.”
“Although she doesn’t cite the sources for these quotes, we did a little Googlin’ and uncovered the publications. Here are the most egregious examples of critics who blasted her back in 2010 and now have to eat their own words. Because the Internet, and the government monitoring it, never forgets.” Fuse TV reported.

It would be suicidal for NSA not to.

What? The unelected unpopular as the only policemen in the world then you think like rajaporkistan.
Bedrock Barney / June 27, 2013
Exactly, We all shocked to learn that the NSA is spying on people! MIA states the obvious and J Muthu feels its sheer genius.

You still cannot take a train to the northern section of it !!!!! guided tours not possible
Thalathel Sivaguru / June 27, 2013
Youll sure have your guided tour. Very soon. But all instructions will be in Tamil so you better start learning the language now.

The easiest way to describe where “Eelam” is as follows:
Take a map of sri lanka and start coloring all the areas that the Sri Lankan airforce has dropped bombs on. What you have colored is the area of “Eelam”.

I have a better definition than that Patriot:
An Utopia from where Sinhalese and Muslim Sri Lankans were forcibly evicted or killed; anyone living, entering or leaving had to pay kappam to a criminal gang, and where children as young as 12 to 14 years were abducted, and forcibly trained as child soldiers thereby destroying their lives.

Peelamists are hallucinating while Tamil women are marrying Jews.

Out here we know that Paranoia is not what it is billed to be..eh Veronika?

Since when did this woman become a monitor of US intelligence – she should stick to what she chose – singing but that too is so bad that she now has to have other claims to fame..especially since her antics at US Super Bowl last year failed miserably – giving the finger to America when the whole country including kids were watching. So much so for MIA’s talent at being ? nothing, just a forgotten bad rapper whose only ticket was the now defeated LTTE. Take a hike, Elamists. Sorry your day is done, whether the Govt here in Colombo is in or out, the west is aware of your antics and your claim to fame ended a long time ago.
Shereen / June 27, 2013
I’ll second that !!!!
She’s trying her best to make a comeback….. Poor thing.
meezan / June 27, 2013
What does this woman think she is? Even Madonna that vulgarly vixen to whom shame means nothing, snubbed herr at the Super Bowl even before her finger act.
ONE / June 28, 2013
This woman BTW married rich and is well settled and wouldn’t bother if a Lankan does not buy her record.
All said and done it was Madonna first on video and the rest of the western women followed- she was always before time.
You don’t seem to know who and what runs the music industry in the UK/US.

You know what they say about broken clocks :-)
Ameer / June 28, 2013
@Siva Sankaran Sarma
I too think her clock is broken.She needs some serious rewinding. And on this count, I think we can both be right twice a day.

Growing up in Sri Lanka I always looked at the Tamil women as very conservative, well mannered, bodies well encased in clothing and the only parts of the body that were exposed were the neck, face, wrists, fingers and the feet. Especially a Hindu woman was considered sacred, soft spoken and full of feminine grace.
MIA did away with all that. She is most of the time half naked, foul mouthed and vulgar. She drsses and looks like “Hamburg Hooker”. The most repulsive moment was her exposing her distended ugly belly in an advanced stage of pregnancy and singing and dancing a violently lewd song at the Emmy’s for the whole world to see.
Aren’t the Tamils ashamed of this vulgar brat. Well I guess when you belong to violent terrorist organizations that kill your mother and father, where you sleep with your brother, sister or any other relative – whenever whereever, screaming on stage half naked and pregnant does not matter. It is the new Tamil gig.
