M.I.A. wants it known that she is a total antihero-style pop star bad ass. She took over Pitchfork's Twitter account, got righteously indignant about being compared to Lady Gaga, and made a video about war where a ginger kid gets shot. Now, she's turned her sights on Justin Bieber, which is kind of like going after a wounded poodle after messing with a rottweiler. Referencing her aforementioned music video for "Born Free", M.I.A. had the following to say:
"I find the new Justin Bieber video more violent and more of an assault on to my eyes and senses than what I've made."
