M.I.A. Announces "Real" Baby Name
We're not surprised that our friends over at TMZ got their paws on singer M.I.A's new baby birth certificate. Why the big deal? The media had announced that she had named her son Ickitt - and that lit a spark under the singer, causing her to take them to task on her blog:
"MY BABY IS NOT CALLED ICKITT, PICKIT OR LICKIT THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO ALL THE HOLLYWOOD PRESS. HES A BABY, HE DON'T NEED PRESS!
I DIDNT RELEASE THE BABY NAME BECAUSE I DIDNT THINK IT WAS NEWS!!!!
BUT I WILL BE BACK WITH SOMETHING NEWS WORTHY SOON, TILL THEN GO PICK ON APPLE, SATCHEL AND MOON UNIT.
LOTS OF LOVE STICKIT!!"
Those were her words, not ours. The birth certificate states that (M.I.A.) Mathangi Maya Arulpragasam named her baby boy Ikhyd Edgar Arular Bronfman.
We have no comment on the HUGE error that the media has made. We're guessing we won't be seeing any pics of Ikhyd (correct spelling) any time soon.
