M.I.A. is super-di-duper bad ass in her most recent music video for Bad Girls. Probably the most exhilarating driving I’ve ever seen (runner up to sexy Ryan Gosling in Drive). Set in Morocco, it resembles a Fast & Furious movie, Arab style.
“It was dope to have so many people from so many different backgrounds speaking so many different languages come together to create something that we believed in,” M.I.A said about making “Bad Girls.” “I thought I was gonna die on the shoot when I saw the drifting. It was a four day shoot so everyone was on edge the whole time — specifically ME when I had to do blue steel singing to the camera while the cars did doughnuts on the wet road ten feet away. In my mind I was thinking how I was gonna deliver the video to Vice with no legs.”
Hells yeah, M.I.A.
