Yo yo yo! So this post is dedicaded to my biggest inspiration in life and also the day I met her AND took part in her coming music video. Who am I talking about if not the goddess Mathangi Arulpragasm, MAYA as in M.I.A! Everything she does inspires me, i love her visual art and the lyrics and her style. The most important is also the message she has in her tunes and graphics about the world and justice.
A bit blurry but yet so beautiful, from one of the best music videos ever created to the best tune ever Bad Girls.
And this happend a few weeks ago and I still can’t cope with it. I MET M.I.A, my biggest inspiration in life!
One day when I had a meeting with my Socker Mag crew in a milkshake place in East London, two girls came up to me and said they were street casting people for M.I.A’s music video. And I literally died and didn’ t belive it was true. And a few days later I was there, dressed in all white errthang:
…and having a 90’s hairdo as everyone else…
…and danced to her new tune Bring the Noise which is a total banger. We were a super big team and it was cold and I didn’t know anyone. But it turned out great, free food and cool people (also met White Boy, who’s her man character in a few videos as Born Free for example). Not sure how much you will see of me but in the end I took the chance to hug Maya and say thank you and that she’s my biggest inspiration ever. Which was totally worth the whole day of freezing and waiting… The video will be out soon! In the mean time, take a look at a few super pics from my personal collection of pictures of Maya..
