M.I.A. Takes Media Relations Into Her Own Hands, Posts Times Reporter’s Cell Phone Number

It seems that rapper and pop-diva M.I.A. is not happy with her profile in this weekend’s New York Times Magazine. The above Twitter posting includes the cell phone number of Lynn Hirschberg, who penned the piece.

This line may have been the straw that broke the camel’s back:

“I kind of want to be an outsider,” [MIA] said, eating a truffle-flavored French fry.

“I find it kind of interesting that she would cast the spotlight on the story in any way, shape or form…I can’t say what she thinks of it. But it seems you would want it to go away,” Hirschberg told the Observer.
