M.I.A. net worth: M.I.A. is a British singer, songwriter, visual artist, and director who has a net worth of $10 million dollars. M.I.A., also known as Mathangi Arulpragasam, was born in Hounslow, London, but grew up in Jaffna, a town in northern Sri Lanka. Her father was very politically active, and due to the war tearing the country apart, her family spent much of their time in hiding while she was young. She rarely saw her father. She eventually moved back to London with her mother and younger brother, and spent her late teenage years there. She was accepted to the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and graduated in 2000. She began her professional career with gallery shows, and creating album art and tour videos for the band, Elastica. Touring with Elastica led to a desire to create her own music, and she recorded the songs, "M.I.A.", "Galang", and "Lady Killa" in a shed behind her house. These songs would form the basis of her first album, the hit release, "Arular". Since then, she has released two more critically and commercially successful albums, and her fourth album, "Matangi" is set to drop in 2013.
Mathangi "Maya" Arulpragasam (Tamil: a(R)(R)a(R) 3/4 a(R)?a(R)?a??a(R)?a(R)? 'a(R)(R)a(R) 3/4 a(R)?a(R) 3/4 ' a(R)?a(R)?a??a(R)?a??a(R)?a(R)?a(R)?a(R)?a(R) 3/4 a(R)?a(R)(R)a??, MA?taa??ki 'MA?yA?' Arua,?pirakA?cam ?; born 17 July 1975), better known by her stage name M.I.A., is an English recording artist, songwriter, painter and director of Tamil descent. The moniker "M.I.A." is both a play on her own name and a reference to the abbreviation for Missing in Action. Her compositions combine elements of electronic, dance, alternative, hip hop and world music. M.I.A. began her career in 2000 as a visual artist, filmmaker and designer in West London before beginning her recording career in 2002. Since rising to prominence in early 2004 for her singles "Sunshowers" and "Galang", charting in the UK and Canada and reaching number eleven on the Billboard Hot Dance Singles Sales in the US, she has been nominated for an Academy Award, two Grammy Awards and the Mercury Prize.
She released her debut album Arular in 2005 and second album Kala in 2007 both to universal critical acclaim. Arular charted in Norway, Belgium, Sweden, Japan and the US, where it reached number sixteen on the Billboard Independent Albums chart and number three on the Dance/Electronic Albums chart. Kala was certified silver in the United Kingdom and gold in Canada and the United States, where it topped the Dance/Electronic Albums chart. It also charted in several countries across Europe, in Japan and Australia. The album's first single "Boyz" reached the top ten in Canada and on the Billboard Hot Dance Singles Sales in 2007, becoming her first top-ten charting single. The single "Paper Planes" peaked in the top 20 worldwide and reached number four on the Billboard Hot 100. "Paper Planes" was certified gold in New Zealand and three times platinum in Canada and the US where, as of November 2011, it is ranked the seventh best-selling song by a British artist in the digital era. It has become XL Recordings
