M.I.A. teams up with WikiLeaks boss for new TV show

Outspoken hip-hop star M.I.A. has recorded music for controversial WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's new TV show.

The Paper Planes hitmaker has collaborated with Assange for his upcoming The World Tomorrow news show.


The first episode of the series will air on the Russian network RT on 17 April (12) and will also be available online.


The show will come from Assange's home in England, where he has been under house arrest since last spring (11) awaiting a High Court decision regarding his extradition to Sweden - where prosecutors want to question him for alleged sex crimes.


M.I.A. revealed she was a fan of the media-savvy whistle-blower last year (11), when she released a mixtape titled Vicki Leekx.
