M.I.A. is nominated for Grammy and Oscar this year and she is also due to have her baby on the Oscar night, what a coincidence ;) I think M.I.A. is one of the rare talents, but I admire the fact that although she had a tough time when she was a child, she fled to England as a refugee from Sri Lanka, she became so successful representing Tamil people in the world, when genocide continues to go on in Sri Lanka and situation's getting worse there. Thank God that when there was a time to save her life she had a chance to go to England and survive. It's hard though.
