M.I.A. Lovealot - What does it mean?
This is my favorite song off of M.I.A.'s most recent album "MAYA" I've always thought it was brilliant, but there are many things about the song that has been debated.
One of the things I find brilliant about the song is the double meanings M.I.A. makes out of her pronunciations.
So my question is, how do you interpret this song, especially considering the following lines:
Although the song is called Lovalot, it's clear that during the chorus she drags it out to sound "I really love allah"
Then there are the lyrics "That Obama needs to love up Chen"
which is also believed to be heard as "Like a bomber needs to love up Dzhen" being a reference to Dzhennet Abdurakhmanova a 17 year old "black widow" behind the 2010 metro moscow suicide bombing.
Like a Taliban trucker, eating boiled up yucca
Who's in town
Like a hand me down sucker throwing bombs out to mecca
