Thanks Readers! M.I.A. Getting Engaged, No Funny Business

June 3, 2008 at 12:00 PM | by | ()

Last week we asked someone, anyone, to marry British-Sri Lankan singer M.I.A. so she could stay in the US after her visa expires. And you came through! Ms. Arulpragasam is now engaged to rocker (and, we assume, Jaunted reader) Benjamin Brewer of the rock-reggae band The Exit.

Brewer's dad is the CEO of Warner Music Group, whose rival Universal put out M.I.A.'s last album. Should make for some awkward family dinners!

Catch M.I.A. in concert tonight in Montreal and later this month at Tennessee's Bonnaroo Music Festival. And sorry, scenesters, her Brooklyn show on Friday is already sold out.

love MIA - but seriously, that MySpace design has got to go.

oh man

She's amazing. I was kinda hoping she'd get back together with Philly's own Diplo though.
