M.I.A. Keeping a Steal LogPosted by Bernard Downey
M.I.A. announced that she is keeping a “steal log” on her Tumblr, documenting how she is being ripped off.
The singer claims that the Grammy‘s stole ideas from her art direction and stage show for a Bob Marley tribute set. She compares her lazer-box stage backdrop from a January performance in Australia to the one at the Grammys featuring Rihanna, Sting, Bruno Mars, and Damian and Ziggy Marley.
“My ideas came from life,” writes M.I.A. “My set was based on Tamil Hindu temple. Not Bob Marley.” Followed by, “If u wanna see the real thing or get it first, come to a M.I.A. show!”
