The red resistance?

Never shy of courting controversy, M.I.A. has made a career out of speaking her mind through her music. Though not personally a huge fan of her sounds, her ethic and this video for the first single off her new album is a hell of a declaration. While the majors continue to pump out the bile and women like GaGa are lauded by the delusional media of the mainstream, it is at least nice to see someone stir the pot once in a while.

I'm all for music with meaning, however the theme of the video is rather quaint. None the less the whole production is extremely well done. French Director Romain Gavras, who made some waves with his "Stress" video for Jus†ice, is rumored to be developing a movie based on the premise of "Born Free". La Haine en Rouge anyone?
