Sometimes, we forget stars are just like us, human beings who've also have their share of obstacles to overcome. Maya, aka. M.I.A. grew up without a father and she had this to say to GQ about the experience ,
Thankfully all that is behind her now, she is engaged to Benjamin Brewer, heir to the Seagrams fortune and also son of CEO of Warner Music. She is also first time mother to a gorgeous lil' boy , Ikhid Brewer. Yeah, you are reading it right. Most stars are true artists at heart, so don't expect , "John" as a name for their offspring. You are better off guessing " Apple " as actress Gwyneth Paltrow named her daughter.“England gave me a free education,” she explains, “but my grades suffered because I didn’t have my dad to help me."
So what is Maya up to? Why is she making headlines left right and center? publicity, might be your first guess or the HARD tour might be the second guess. She's always been a perfect mix of street style matched with undeniable political substance. With that said at any given moment, expect to see M.I.A in the news, Missing In Action so not her style.
and..... This is my favorite piece from her.
