I think M.I.A’s amazing. She’s really taking it on. She’s very important. The fact that she got heard, actually – I think that’s amazing. Thirty years ago, I’m not sure, maybe she’d be an eccentric somewhere. I mean, I remember when I was teenager that no one confessed they liked Kate Bush because she was so weird. She was always written about like ’crazy Kate’. Insane ! I don’t think she’s crazy at all, I think she seems like one of the most healthy people they are. Just because she knew what she wanted and she wasn’t a rock thing, she was weird. But I really have hope that all that is changing today, you know, everyone’s getting onto the right-brain hemisphere. Oh yeah, and more of them should listen to M.I.A.!
