New MIA Music Vid Features 3-D Printed Guns & Drones.

Just like every other music video M.I.A produces her new one Double Bubble Trouble is sure to court even more controversy.

It features an array of threatening characters showing off their sword collections and smoking skills, while garnished with neon gang tattoos, armed with guns manufactured from a 3-D printer.

This futuristic version of thugs and gang life takes place on a bleak housing estate peppered with female dancers and neon coloured drones. Unlike her previous videos this one was self-directed and for the sharp eyed out there it features a blink and you’ll miss him cameo from M.I.A dancer and star of the Born Free video Whyte Boi.

MIA’s New Music Video Bad Girls.

The video above is for M.I.A.’s latest single Bad Girls and it’s currently getting just as much attention online as their last collaboration with French film director Romain Gavras when they made the controversial and intense music video for their 2010 single Born Free.

Shot in Morocco and featuring a range of cars and stunt driving based on the infamous Trick Driving craze in Saudi Arabia, the video looks glorious and the tune ain’t bad either, but what’s really interesting is how director Gavras actually put the scenes together. Below is a fascinating¬†13 minute long making-of featurette which includes a rather unconventional love story.
