M.I.A. Talks Madonna, Super Bowl, and New Album

M.I.A.

M.I.A. has remained out of the spotlight since the release of 2010’s /\/\/\Y/\. Today she resurfaced with a new single “Bad Girls,” produced by Danja, and her first interview in months. Speaking with BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe from the Super Bowl rehearsals, the firecracker femcee dished on her upcoming performance with Madonna at Sunday’s halftime show, collaborating with the pop queen, and her fourth album, due this summer.

On performing with Madonna and Nicki Minaj at Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis: “Yes, I’m going to the Super Bowl. Actually I’ve never been to the Super Bowl, so it’s my first time. I’m going to be performing with Madonna and Nicki Minaj. If you’re gonna go to the Super Bowl, you might as well go there with America’s biggest female icons.”

On collaborating with pop royalty: “She is the original. If you’re gonna support someone, that’s a pretty dope achievement. I’m sure my mum is gonna be way [more] into that than me putting ‘Galang’ out.”

On why she wanted to work with Madge: “As musicians, we’re two women and we represent two opposite sides of the world. If we can come together on a piece of music or something like the Super Bowl, I feel like that’s actually a cool thing to see this year because it’s getting silly out there.”

On her as-yet-untitled fourth album: “I want it to be a summer thing ’cause it’s a summer record. As soon as I finish the Super Bowl, I’ve gotta do another couple of weeks with European producers.”

    I’m definitely going to buy “Bad Girls” when its released to Itunes tomorrow. The song has a sick beat. I hope she releases her album in the summer because all her albums have a summer type vibe to them. Can’t wait!!!

    i don’t like what this ungrateful bitch is saying.
    No need to drag her mother along,
    sounds like she’s doing a favour.
    Nobody cares about her mom,
    we hardly care about MIA herself.
    These young starlets don’t know a shit about respect and gratitude.

    I am not a fan of MIA at all, but my good friend Miz Hollywood has me convinced that Madonna is going to be Epic, so that just might save the day.

    Nicki Minaj is not an icon…I wish people would stop calling her that.

    @nicegirl, maybe not to you, but isn’t that a relative term? its all an opinion, and i would say if niki has the Icon-formula(fans old, young, straight, gay. she doesn’t do too much media appearences, she loves her fans, full of surprises..) if her career keeps up, she’ll be an UNDENIABLE icon
