Remember last week when we read an infamous profile of Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain? Well, let's read its companion piece-- a profile of indie pop star M.I.A.

The author, Lynn Hirschberg, has a notorious reputation due to these profiles. Love and Cobain accused her of exaggerating, fabricating and falsifying information to create a juicy piece. M.I.A. accused her of the same... and also leaked Hirschberg's phone number because she was so furious after this article.
