M.I.A. to Release Autobiography in October

M.I.A. Book

M.I.A. is making her mark in the literary world with a new book. The “Paper Planes” hitmaker will release an autobiographical monograph this fall.

The 192-page M.I.A. documents the career and one-of-a-kind style of the Grammy-nominated singer-rapper through 300 images and several unpublished testimonies. It is scheduled to arrive in hardcover via Rizzoli New York in October.

The controversial M.I.A., who recently sparred with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Twitter, is also readying the follow-up to her 2010 album /\/\/\Y/\, slated for a summer release. The project has already spawned the Danja-produced single “Bad Girls” and its acclaimed video, directed by Romain Gavras.

    @MinajRules2012, Can you stop acting like the only artist that can exist is Nicki? Really.

    She acturally has an interesting story growing up in london as an awkward artsy refugee from india. Her dad was a well known political activist in india and even her school was bombed cuz the group she was a part of was bombed. She grew up on the run from crazy government officials…that’s why she’s very politically charged in her music and not worried about being controversial. She’s bold and has more to talk about than collaborating or laying tracks. I’m excited for her book as any true fan would be! :)
