English songwriter, record producer, and rapper M.I.A has lashed out at Lady Gaga, accusing her of being a mimic backed by a resourceful and well-equipped team.

In an interview with music bible NME, the Sri Lankan pop star says she doesn't buy into the 'House of Gaga.'

"People say we’re similar, that we both mix all these things in the pot and spit them out differently, but she spits it out exactly the same! None of her music’s reflective of how weird she wants to be or thinks she is. She models herself on Grace Jones and Madonna, but the music sounds like 20-year-old Ibiza music," she says.

"She’s not progressive, but she’s a good mimic. She sounds more like me than I fucking do! That’s a talent and she’s got a great team behind her, but she’s the industry last’s stab at making itself important - saying, ‘You need our money behind you, the endorsements, the stadiums’ Respect to her, she’s keeping a hundred thousand people in work, but my belief is: Do It Yourself."
