M.I.A. might actually have some sense

Superficial / March 7, 2009

Latina.com reported on Friday that British singer M.I.A., who co-wrote and performs the Slumdog Millionaire song “O… Saya,” named her newborn son Ickitt, but later that day, the singer posted on her MySpace that the name was wrong. MSNBC reports:

“My baby is not called Ickitt, Pickit or Lickit, thank you very much!” the singer wrote. “I didn’t release the baby name because I didn’t think it was news. … Go pick on Apple, Satchel and Moon Unit!”

I don’t really have any idea who M.I.A. is, but I think it’s funny that some site just randomly made up the name Ickitt and thought they’d get away with saying that’s what her baby’s name was. Has that ever worked? Like in the entire history of time? “What’s that? A somewhat famous person just had a baby and we don’t know what it’s name is? Let’s just say she named it Banana Hammock. No no, I think it’ll be okay. This should work. I really feel like this is the year we finally get that Pulitzer!”
