M.I.A., the Sri Lankan born rapper who's crossover appeal reached critical mass when her single ?Paper Planes? was featured in the film ?Slumdog Millionaire," was enraged when she read a profile of herself in The New York Times. Lynn Hirschberg wrote the profile that took down the artist, questioning her ties to the Tamil Tigers, saying that she likes truffle-oiled french fries, and writing she hates Lady Gaga. In response, M.I.A. released a song attacking Hirschberg and shared the journalist's personal cell phone number via Twitter. Dave Itzkoff, reporter for The New York Times fills us on in on the story.
