    Break out the boxing gloves, because M.I.A. and Lady Gaga may go at it. According to a few sources, when she was asked in an interview with British rag NME if celebreality shows like American Idol are destroying the mythos of pop stardom, M.I.A. took a pot shot at Lady Gaga, saying, "Again, there's Lady 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 music, you know? She’s not progressive, but she's a good mimic. She sounds more like me than I f****** do!" She also criticizes Gaga for "plug[ging] 15 things in her new video," adding, "Dude, she even plugs a burger!" What's wrong with plugging a burger? Paris Hilton has done it!

    Is M.I.A. generating publicity by verbally assaulting the world's biggest pop star? Do you think Gaga is riffing on M.I.A.?
