(Newser) – Maya Arulpragasam, aka MIA, must have really hated Lynn Hirschberg's piece about her in New York Times Magazine, because she's just plastered Hischberg's cell phone number on Twitter—pretending it's her own. “CALL ME IF YOU WANNA TALK TO ME ABOUT THE N Y T TRUTH ISSUE, ill b taking calls all day bitches ;),” the radical rapper wrote.

Hirschberg seems to be taking it in stride. “It's a fairly unethical thing to do, but I don't think it's surprising. She's a provocateur, and provocateurs want to be provocative,” she told the New York Observer, adding that she doesn't plan to change her number. “The messages have mostly been from people trying to hook up with MIA. If she wants to get together with John at Bard next week, I have his number.”
