It seems that nowadays, instead of promoting their music, artist’s just use interviews to “express their opinions” about others. Whitney Houston recently dissed todays “dark performers”, and we already know about 50 Cent and some other celebrities various comments. The newest diss comes from MIA, an artist who Lady GaGa has been compared to many times. In an interview with NME, the “Paper Planes” singer said that she is nothing like GaGa:

“People say we’re similar, that we both mix all these things in the pot and spit them out differently, but she spits it out exactly the same. None of her music’s reflective of how weird she wants to be or thinks she is. She models herself on Grace Jones and Madonna, but the music sounds like 20-year-old Ibiza disco, you know? She’s not progressive, but she’s a good mimic. She sounds more like me than I fucking do!”

It seems that MIA is angry about Lady Gaga being on top, and her only having one hit. I listen to MIA, but sometimes artists make comments that make me like them a lot less. MIA didn’t have to say all that, and I think she’s wrong. Her and GaGa are two completely different musicians. GaGa is a POP singer, while MIA does electronic/hip-hop. I don’t think they sound anything alike, and I definitely don’t think GaGa stole MIA’s style. Some people need to just keep their mouths shut sometimes.
