Art Imitating Life ... or Something

Charles Homans looks at MIA's pretty lousy political stances (namely, her support of the Tamil Tigers), before concluding:
I think this is a more damning indictment of politics than it is of M.I.A. -- whose music is, all things considered, pretty great, if not quite up to the precedents of London Calling or It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back. Stitching an aesthetic out of politics is at the end of the day pretty harmless; assembling a politics out of aesthetics, not so much.

Gawd I already hate Facebook...
and I didn't know that MIA girl, heard the name but..anyway IMO her music is really boring
and Stewie's taste in "music" is pretty damn shitty a lot of the time, so that's really saying something.
sorry sorry sorry sorry
