Video: M.I.A. “Paper Planes (Official)”

First she was censored on the Late Show with David Letterman, now this. M.I.A. originally wanted to film the video for this very powerful song in a factory on Ecuador's border but scheduling conflicts due to her U.S. tour made Bed-Stuy a more convenient shooting locale. Despite the fact that she made non-violent, “ambiguous” MTV-friendly version of what she had envisioned, a censored version of  “Paper Planes” ended up on You Tube (via MTV) anyway. Here is the official version of the video with gunshots and cameos from two Beastie Boys.
