M.I.A. Kid Explains Gun to the Head in Video

4/29/2010 8:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

12-year-old Ian Hamrick gets his head blown off in M.I.A.'s new music video ... and he sounds like a 50-year-old philosopher as he explains why he let someone put a gun to his head.


As Ian and his mother left Jerry's Deli in Studio City, the ginger explained that the violent "Born Free" vid actually carries a powerful, anti-genocide message.

As for his mom and retired cop dad -- they gave their blessing ... but never expected anyone to see the video in the U.S.
 
Whoops.

wonder if she got the inspiration from the tamil tigers' ruthless murders of muslim communities in the north of sri lanka. the tamil tigers were notorious for being genocidal, unfortunately their memory only lasts for 12 months.



you can take the tiger out of the jungle, but you can't remove its stripes.

Sounds smart? He sounds like a clueless, brainwashed child that is desperately trying to regurgitate nonsense he's heard his hippy parents say. I feel sorry for him.

I saw the video in its entirety. Is there an actual song to this video? The same beat and one word is just playing over and over. What a POS.

she could have at least had the stones to have the cops be black. Whites don't kill whites. Same race violence is only done by minorities.
