M.I.A. speaks with BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe on her upcoming performance with Madonna at Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime show and collaborating with the queen of pop.
On performing with Madonna and Nicki Minaj at Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis…
Yes, I’m going to the Super Bowl. Actually I’ve never been to the Super Bowl, so it’s my first time. I’m going to be performing with Madonna and Nicki Minaj. If you’re gonna go to the Super Bowl, you might as well go there with America’s biggest female icons.
On collaborating with pop royalty…
She is the original. If you’re gonna support someone, that’s a pretty dope achievement. I’m sure my mum is gonna be way [more] into that than me putting ‘Galang’ out.
On why she wanted to work with Madge…
As musicians, we’re two women and we represent two opposite sides of the world. If we can come together on a piece of music or something like the Super Bowl, I feel like that’s actually a cool thing to see this year because it’s getting silly out there.
