Not only is MIA allowed in this country, she still hangs out with Diplo.

MIA & DIPLO

MIA was first spotted at the Cee Lo-hosted VMA after-party at Gotham Hall Thursday night. The Rapture played, Cee-Lo sang "Crazy", and MIA sang (according to those who were there) 1.5 songs while Diplo DJ'd. On Sunday she surprised the crowd at the free Spank Rock show at McCarren Pool in Brooklyn by getting on stage and singing "Galang". Diplo didn't DJ that one, but his friends from the Rub did.
