M.I.A. is an artist of Sri Lankan origin whose music encompasses everything from rap to reggae, hip-hip, dancehall, electronica, and funk. When she was performing at Lollapalooza, Perez tracked her down to introduce her to something we like to call Perez Gives Back. Kinda like Oprah. We were in Chicago, after all. But instead of giving people cars and trips and reunions with long lost siblings, Perez and M.I.A. settled on something a tad more modest – the all-American half-eaten hot dog! Ewww! Tune in to What Perez Sez …about the VMAs on Tuesday, September 11 at 9PM on VH1 and feel the warmth that giving gives. For more info go to perezsez.vh1 and for more juicy gossip, of course, there’s perezhilton.
