In May, the New York Times published a not-so-favorable profile of M.I.A. by writer Lynn Hirschberg. In it, M.I.A. was revealed as a hypocrite for leading a contradictory lifestyle--taking about terrorism and Sri Lankan politics while living in an ultra-rich LA neighborhood with a billionaire husband.

The Insane Clown Posse fans were so angry that Tequila was at their 'underground' Shangri-La that they threw eggs, poop, cans of Faygo, dildos and diapers at her. Tequila apparently continued performing once objects started flying, and kept shouting, "I don't give a fuck!"; she also pulled off her top before she got hit on the head and was carried away by security. Awesome.
