MIA Born Free Video Too Graphic and Violent?

The new MIA Born Free video released on Monday is graphic, violent and thought-provoking. The Born Free video from MIA is also probably something you shouldn’t watch at work, or at all if you’re not ready up for graphic violence, nudity and extreme shock value.


Directed by Roman Gavras, the nine-minute MIA Born Free video was released on Monday and will be available for download at midnight from MIAuk.com. The video for the title song from MIA’s third album – due for release on June 28 – is already sparking controversy for its violent content.

YouTube and MIA’s label, Universal Music Group/Interscope, have already reportedly pulled the video from the U.S., although you can find it online easily enough. If you’re somewhere you can watch the video, check it out below and let us know what you think.
