OMG, Neneh Cherry’s daughter has grown up and become M.I.A! Don’t know what I’m talking about? Think back to the late 80s when Neneh was “looking good today, looking good in every way” and hanging in a “Buffalo Stance”. She had bicycle pants, thick gold jewelry around her neck and danced in front of a white background. She rapped about prostitutes and pimps around London where she came from.

Fast forward to the noughties and you’ll see M.I.A rapping about shootouts over the top of a computer game soundtrack on acid with bike pants and a white background with spray paint everywhere. Is this a London thing?

I don’t give a toss either way because I’m loving it. I’ve played Lady Killer over 19 times in the last two months (it’s so sexy!) and Galang is quickly catching up. The video is really refreshing because she has the weirdest dance and is dressed like she is hanging around the house. It’s such a simple video but so compelling – the girl obviously has talent but in such a non *insert country* idol way. She reckons she is a tone deaf singer but couldn’t find anyone to sing the songs the way she wanted so she did it herself. Interesting history as well with her Dad being a freedom fighter y’all.

If you want to see the what I’m talking about you can get the video here.

Oh, and while you are in the mood for music videos you can get 622 of them here.

    I apologise that this isn’t about nenah cherry or her daughter, but what happened to the coffee stories? Have you a verdict on who’s the best? And have you seen the doctor about your suddenly caffein peak?

    Oops. I didn’t actually mean the M.I.A was Neneh’s daughter, I just meant that she could be because their videos are so similar. Sorry!
