M.I.A. 'Bad Girls' by Romain Gavras

David Knight - 7th Feb 2012

Bad girl M.I.A. is back with bad boy Romain Gavras for Bad Girls, and it's an awesome, beautiful, horizon-widening, spectacle. Beamers driving on end, boy racers in keffiyahs, mind-boggling stunts, skidding blow-outs, silky dancers with AK-47s - and Arab stallions in full gallop....

Shot in Morocco, it's arguably Romain's first proper pop video - which also smashes a stereotypical Western view of the 'Middle East'. And it puts M.I.A's middle finger to the all-American Superbowl-watching viewers into some kind of perspective. What else could she possibly do
