Our dream wife M.I.A’s new video for the amazing track Born Free has been doing the rounds this week, and let me tell you, it’s frickin incredible. Directed by Romain Gavras (the man who made the ultra controversial clip for Justice), it presents a metaphor for racial injustice that is hard to miss. Still, despite the heavy handedness of the content, it is filmed with much beauty and subtlety. M.I.A has a history of pushing boundaries both in her music and her service to social causes. She’s also a megababe. Watch and learn.

Quick warning – this contains violence and some nudity.
