Morning Soul: Let’s Get Naked

  • M.I.A. on Lady Gaga: "She's not progressive, but she's a good mimic. She sounds more like me than I f*cking do!" Oh snap! [NYM]
  • The pitbull-in-a-skirt, Eve, talks harajuku Barbie (Lawd) Nicki Minaj - I'll sum it up: "no tea, no shade, but she ain't seein me. [VIBE]
  • VH1 says that its new celebreality line-up, including Chilli from TLC's dating show and Shaunie O'Neal's Basketball Wives won't embarrass Black folk as much as Flavor of Love and I Love NY did. Thanks? [YH]

  1. M.I.A. should be ashamed of even suggesting Lady Gaga sounds anything like her. M.I.A has no track record worth mentioning and her vocals are just too juvenile to even be compared to what Lady Gaga has put out here to date.
    In the past 2 years I've seen more progression from Lady Gaga than in the entire 5 year M.I.A.'s name has been floating around. May be if M.I.A actually sat down to write and get a vocal coach she could open her mouth.

  2. Did Marques not get the email when D'angelo made damn near the same video previously? I mean if you gonna bite be original..............I bet Lady Gaga is just laughing at all the haters as she deposits checks every morning at her bank.

  3. Actually M.I.A.'s Kala and Arular are two of the best albums of last decade. She showed tremendous growth between Arular and Kala with the latterr being more cohesive and trailblazing. When I heard Wale's Chillin' before the video came out I was like I'm glad Wale's doing a song with M.I.A. besides the Boyz remix they did together. I had no idea it was Gaga, she sounded just like M.I.A.
    Gaga is popular becuase she is perceived as weir or dressing different but we have E. Badu and Kelis in front of our faces and still as black people swear Gaga is the first to do this, Get a life!

  4. This is why I love MIA. Lady guacamole is too busy reading the Madonna handbook with footnotes from Andy & Grace to be anywhere near original. How can you be so avante garde but your music is str8 eurotrash and not even good euro trash.

  5. Lady Gaga is is way better. She may be a Madonna knockoff but she is just better than M.I.A. She just is. Sorry folks. She's even better at doing that "weird" thing.

  6. I don't particularly care for either of their music, but I love that quote in the article about how Lady Gaga's persona is infinitely more interesting than her music, but it is sorta bland.
