M.I.A. for Paper Magazine November 2012
Rapper/singer/musical genius M.I.A. poses pretty across the cover of Paper Magazine’s November issue titled, “Bad Girl: M.I.A. Won’t Play By the Rules.”
Photographed by Jessica Craig Martin, M.I.A. looks completely bad-ass and stares us down with her doey-eyes and her “just try me” aura.
The big-mouth trendsetter gives us a piece of herself with bold color, an attitude that doesn’t apologize for her schizophrenic style and nonchalant response to critics who beg her to have a seat.
The not-so-average superstar wears Acne and Crème de Silkt tops, a headpiece by Tom Manaton, custom-made pants and shoes by Kenzo in the shoot as she poses in front of images of her forthcoming art book plastered along the walls. Allow us to re-introduce the M.I.A.
