MIA
MIA

On Tuesday I wrote that M.I.A. announced a tour with zero mention of her promised HARD NYC make-up show. Nobody would have asked for a make-up show, but back in July (right after the Governors Island show), she tweeted that she was going to play one. I realize she was probably just caught up in the moment (and by moment I mean the bad reviews), but she said it, publicly, and so people aren't going to forget. That includes the above-pictured Twitter users who M.I.A. just responded to (her replies are also pictured)...

Tickets for the upcoming show at Terminal 5 are now on AmEx presale. General sale begins Friday at noon. (thanks Mark)

No problem. I was one of the people at Hardfest. Maybe if enough people pick up on this ordeal with her, she will do the show or fade into obscurity. I hope nobody pays for that T5 show. All New Yorkers should know better.

It's amazing...1 year ago I would have been way into seeing her at T5...now I have no interest...That's what a sub par new album and reports of bad shows with prima donna like behavior will get you.

what a bullshit excuse for being flakey

Posted by Anonymous | September 9, 2010 12:57 PM

So boycott the T5 show. Simple enough

M.I.A. should cut the political shit out of her motif. It is clearly ruining her career and reputation.

Posted by michaelways | September 9, 2010 1:06 PM

Maybe if we all stop talking about her she'll just go away....hopefully

Posted by Anonymous | September 9, 2010 1:09 PM

I would go to see her except I am boycotting the shittiest of venues, Terminal 5.

Posted by Anonymous | September 9, 2010 1:09 PM

M.I.A should keep the political shit in her motif. It clearly made her career and reputation. After a lame album she is still being talked about rather than forgotten....dumbass

MEH.I.A.

She talks in all caps. Come on, people. I'm glad I didn't fall for her schtick frm day 1.

And yeah, I can't think of anything less appealing than MIA at T5. Double your pleasure, double your douche.

Remeber electroclash??

Posted by Anonymous | September 9, 2010 1:59 PM

Paper Planes is a catchy tune, but I find the rest of her music grating repetitive and painful to listen to. I couldn't care less if she gave a free show, a paid show or no show.

This woman grows more intolerable with every tweet she tweets

Posted by Anonymous | September 9, 2010 2:04 PM

Fool me once, shame on you.

MIA at Terminal 5, we won't get fooled again.

Posted by Anonymous | September 9, 2010 2:04 PM

this is beyond fucking sellout.

either you have principles or you don't everyone must boycott this shit.


Posted by Anonymous | September 9, 2010 2:06 PM

She should throw the free show regardless. Every other band at HARD sounded awesome she just had a shitty monitor engineer and then got all diva and started kicking speakers off stage. Own up to the fact it was your fault and do the free show you promised. I don't want to go because I don't give a shit but take some responsibility.

I think the more relevant question is this,
What do you enjoy dipping into hummus more?
1. Pita triangles
2. Corn chips.
3. Celery sticks.

I'm definitely not missing her in action.

MIA = self-sabotaging hype monster

Posted by Anonymous | September 9, 2010 2:42 PM

I love dipping triangle pitas into hummus. It would be a more pleasurable evening to dip pitas in hummus than listening to her perform at T5. Now if only hummus was on sale at Tops Grocery Store....

I thought Hanson was the reason why the Drake show got canceled?

Benjamin Bronfman should just buy the mom an israeli birth certificate

Posted by Anonymous | September 9, 2010 10:06 PM

I hear she's not showing up to her T5 gig unless Benjamin Bronfman's stock portfolio doubles, and her baby gets a headline slot next week. Now, now, there's nothing wrong with wanting your baby to headline too.

This isn't the first time MIA has lied. Check this story out that I discovered:

I love Maya. I dont dig the new album too much but all of her other shit is ace.

She opened her big mouth she better suck it up and do the show. Not that i'd bother. She was incomprehensible at hardfest.

Posted by clairepetrol | September 10, 2010 1:56 PM

I still dont get the hype with M.I.A. Most overrated musical act of the last 10 years. No one gives Diplo enough credit. Without Diplo, M.I.A. is nothing.
