M.I.A. Has Written A Song For The New York Times

Won’t stop. Can’t stop. M.I.A. has taken her ongoing… or, alternately, mushrooming… feud with the New York Times (and with writer Lynn Hirschberg in particular) by creating a song about the whole incident. A sample lyric: “And the story’s always fucked by the time it hits / Why the hell would journalists be thick as shit.” So, you know. Kind of a love ballad.

Have a listen to “I’m a Singer (Haters)” and let us know what you think. Song of the summer?
