Maybe it was the bombs to make you blow. Or the beats to make you bang. Or maybe it’s because her father is a Tamil Tiger and she put out a mixtape called Piracy Funds Terrorism. For whatever reason, British-Sri Lankan mash-up diva M.I.A. has been denied entry into the United States of America. She recently posted the following, um, cryptic message on her MySpace page:
“THEY TRY SHUT MY DOOR!
