I’ve always liked rapper M.I.A. and now I like her more.
It’s been all over the interwebs that she named her baby boy, born February 11, “Ickitt.” Naturally, this created an opportunity for every Tom, Dick and Erie Lackawanna to drone on about terrible celebrity baby names. But M.I.A. posted this amusing message on her MySpace blog, in Kanye West-style capital letters:
“MY BABY IS NOT CALLED ICKITT, PICKIT OR LICKIT THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO ALL THE HOLLYWOOD PRESS. HES A BABY , HE DONT NEED PRESS!
I DIDNT RELEASE THE BABY NAME BECAUSE I DIDNT THINK IT WAS NEWS!!!!
BUT I WILL BE BACK WITH SOMETHING NEWS WORTHY SOON , TILL THEN GO PICK ON APPLE, SATCHEL AND MOON UNIT.
LOTS OF LOVE STICKIT!!”
Speaking of names, gorgeous blogger Lisa, remembering my recent complaint about a dearth of Wendy tributes, sent me a link to a story that introduced me to the World Wide Wendy. But I think I like the Fred Society even better. Do you think the Freds would accept an honorary member?
