On everyone’s lips at the moment is M.I.A. and her new video Bad Girls. Whether you like her music or not, no one can deny that the London born rapper has some seriously cool videos under her (gold encrusted) belt. The video has already received well over 4 million views on Youtube and watchers even have the chance for M.I.A. herself respond to their comments in a video response airing February 10th. The video directed by Romain Gavras is set in a ghetto fabulous Middle East and features M.I.A. on top, in front of and inside various gravitationally challenged vehicles. Snoop Dogg eat your heart out. With an exhibition currently showing at the British Museum ‘Hajj – Journey to the heart of Islam’, it makes sense to pay attention to Islamic fashion.

Meanwhile in the biggest Super Bowl controversy since Janet Jackson’s ‘wardrobe malfunction’ in 2004, M.I.A. caused a stir during last night’s Half Time Show by giving the middle finger during a performance with Madonna and Nicki Minaj.
