M.I.A. Performs "Born Free" on The Late Show with David Letterman

MIA

Yesterday, M.I.A. performed the track “Born Free“ from her latest album /\/\/\Y/\ on The Late Show with David Letterman. The performance was characterized by the singer having an entourage of look-a-likes singing and dancing along with her. Pretty strange if you ask me, but it’s something that I’m not surprised to see her do— it’s her way of addressing the recent criticism that’s been tossed around about how she’s fake and an impostor.

Making a surprise cameo appearance alongside M.I.A. and her posse was Suicide band member Martin Rev on the keyboards.
