M.I.A. has claimed that the Grammy Awards stole one of her performance concepts. The 37-year-old singer insisted that the awards ceremony’s tribute to Bob Marley – which featured Rihanna, Bruno Mars and Sting – was an imitation of her own show. “If you want to see the real thing or get it first, come to a MIA show,” she told fans yesterday (February 20) on her official Tumblr page. M.I.A. then accused the Grammys of copying her performance concept from one of her January concerts in Australia. “My ideas came from my life. My set was based on Tamil Hindu temple. Not Bob Marley,” she said. Adding to the argument on Twitter, MIA declared: “M.I.A. $500 : Grammys $5,000,000.”
