MIA~ "Facebook & Google developed by the CIA" + more whining

M.I.A. has gone through the looking glass in her ongoing campaign to trash everything that's good and right with the world.

The "Paper Planes" singer, who recently has attacked such cherished cultural institutions as Twilight, Lady GaGa and—gasp!—even innocent, cherubic Justin Bieber, has now gone on a tirade against pretty much the entire Internet.

In the newest issue of Nylon, M.I.A. cautions readers against using Facebook and Google, because they're really just tools of The Man:

“And you know, all governments are connected to Google, and all governments can shift their search engines so only what they want you to see comes up…I want kids to be aware of this digital circumstance…Everyone on the Internet is like, 'Oh my God, come and join Facebook!' They’re all so optimistic…and really, everyone is f*cking you up behind the screens. And I don’t like that. It makes it difficult for me to interact with my fans knowing that. Google and Facebook were developed by the CIA, and when you’re on there, you have to know that.”

The singer fails to detail how the Rand Corporation and revere vampires fit into the grand digital conspiracy.

Perhaps M.I.A. could show some real commitment to her cause and prevent any information about her from finding its way onto the Internet. Then everyone would be happy—and safe from tyranny!

purplerains 28th-May-2010 05:48 pm (UTC)
Facebook does sell user info... but, that wasn't her point. So... :/
krackerthanas 28th-May-2010 06:15 pm (UTC)
facebook sells it, people on it need to stop complaining and if they dont like it then delete the account. thats why i dont understand about people whining about fb and twitter and myspace. they all sell shit, but most people are more concerned about what their status updates gona be for the day rather than privacy. lol its sad

Her Nylon interview post had this quote in it but you know ONTD didn't read the whole thing. Especially when there were pictures included. LOL
meowberry 28th-May-2010 05:42 pm (UTC)
I love her music and I used to think she was awesome but I'm starting to think she's cray cray :/
slutdrunkmystag 28th-May-2010 05:47 pm (UTC)
I like her music, too, but I think she's crazy... and kind of dumb, to be honest.

x_butterfly19_x 28th-May-2010 05:42 pm (UTC)
Meh, she may be right. The probably could use it for that if they wanted to. Don't think they were "developed by the C.I.A." though.

*runs and hides*
watermeloncholy 28th-May-2010 05:47 pm (UTC)

For fucking real, MIA. You look really dumb right now. Like the CIA has nothing better to do.

dandyxwarhol 28th-May-2010 05:57 pm (UTC)
lol yeah its not like theres war or dictators or coups happening. the CIA really just wants to look at those pics of me getting drunk freshman year.
crystalzelda 28th-May-2010 05:59 pm (UTC)
College students playing beer pong: so much more important to national security than the possibility of nukes in Iran.
