M.I.A. loves controversy and this latest statement will not disappoint, she has recently taken a stand against websites Google and Facebook, claiming that they’re owned by the CIA and used as a means to monitoring the public!
“Anybody who is called the government is right. And anybody who isn’t called the government is not right… And you know, all governments are connected to Google, and all governments can shift their search engines so only what they want you to see comes up… 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*cking 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.”
- I don’t know if this is just random ramblings, but I have designed websites before and if you want it to come up on google when you search for it you have to insert a site xml file into the back end. so its not only what the government wants you to see that will show up, but I do know that some countries like China ban what can show up on the internet in their countries, so its not total B.S. .
