ART & WAR—Whichever team you're on in the M.I.A. debate (either she's an art school dilettante capitalizing on "radical chic" or she's the only force in Western pop culture suggesting you give a shit about the rest of the world), you can't deny that she started the most danceable conversation about global politics in our time.

And yes, I just used "nut-smashing" as an adjective. EH
