M.I.A. engaged to son of Warner Music Group chairman

Edmonton’s Sun Media is reporting Maya Arulpragasam, better known to you and me as M.I.A, is engaged to Benjamin Brewer, guitarist for New York indie rock band The Exit (they had a song on the not-so-indie American Pie 2). But more importantly, his pops is Edgar Bronfman, Jr., Warner Music Group chairman and CEO. But even cooler, he is the heir to the Seagram whiskey throne.


The report names no official sources, so this is all up in the air at this point. No word on if the couple has set a date, or whether they’ll be wearing blue wigs and pastel stretch pants at the ceremony.

sounds like ol' girl wants to stay in the US without visa fuss.

No, I refuse to believe this. If this is true, then how is she going to marry me????


She knows obviously which religious tribe controls the music business! Maybe it's love, but I smell opportunism as well.

M.I.A.'s politics and populism will grant an air of legitimacy to the Bronfman empire's money-grubbing, and in return, every single future M.I.A. tour will be entirely bankrolled by Seagram's. It's a fair trade.

Ben Brewer is a great person -- super humble, sweet and cool. Maya found herself a good egg!

But, wait, he's not the air to Seagrams anymore.


she should have married diplo while she had the chance


the ex cheated on her in brazil, no?

except for one thing

Interesting. Now that Homeland Security is reading about her intentions to marry to stay in the country, she has already broken the law. Wonder how HLS will handle it.


"She knows obviously which religious tribe controls the music business!" Ha ha so true!!

I used to like M.I.A but she's obviously a sell out bitch!!!
I'm not buyng her BS anymore.
