M.I.A. did not name her newborn son Ickitt, thank you very much!
In an entry on her official Myspace Blog late Friday, the British-born rapper, whose real name is Mathangi “Maya” Arulpragasam, denied a Latina.com scoop which claimed she’d given her tot the odd moniker.
“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!” the new mom wrote in an all-caps.
(That means she’s yelling at us, in case you didn’t know.)
“I didnt release the baby name because I didnt think it was news!!!!” the “Paper Planes” star continued. “But I will be back with something news worthy soon, till then go pick on Apple, Satchel and Moon Unit.”
The baby, born in Los Angeles on Feb. 11, is the first child for M.I.A. and her musician fiancÃ©, Benjamin Bronfman.
