M.I.A is making ridiculous claims

Yesterday we revealed how M.I.A thought it would be a great idea to publish a journalist’s phone number because she didn’t like what was wrote about her – the act of a fool if ever there was one – and now she’s claimed that Google and Facebook were developed by the CIA, and that the kids should know that, just in case the US intelligence community wanted to frame you, using pictures of you drunk in a provincial nightclub to do so.

‘All governments are connected to Google, and all governments can shift their search engines so only what they want you to see comes up,’ she said, in an interview with Nylon. ‘I want kids to be aware of this digital circumstance.

‘Everyone on the Internet is like, 'Oh my God, come and join Facebook!' They’re all so optimistic… and really, everyone is f**king you up behind the screens. And I don't like that. It makes it difficult for me to interact with my fans knowing that. Google and Facebook were developed by the CIA, and when you're on there, you have to know that.’ Yeah. Like, watch out!
