I finally got to see MIA and it was amazing. It was everything I had ever hoped and dreamed for. She is even more beautiful in person. The Chicago heat was hard on the crowd but managed to keep the height up with singles from "Arular." I was able to meet the lovely lady at the fye tent and she was very kind. I also had the great fortune of seeing her perform at the House of Blues with Lupe Fiasco the following night.
Her performance at Lollapalooza I thought was much better than at the House of Blues. At both performances she apologized for a hoarse voice and didn't perform "Hit that" (which made me sad, only a little though). Her moves were oh so sensual and seductive. I had no idea she could move like that.
