    Controversial rapper/self-styled artisan and passionate Lady Gaga hater M.I.A. has agreed to be a judge for the inaugural Vimeo Festival & Awards, which will launch in New York this October. The singer will be judging amateur films alongside real filmmakers like David Lynch, Ronald Coppola and Rian Johnson. Learn more at www.vimeo.com, if you are interested.

    Do you think M.I.A. is qualified to judge films? I do think her "Born Free" video felt like a short film, with its jarring political theme, so this isn't too much of a stretch for the singer, IMO.
