Rapper M.I.A. has teamed up with designers at luxury label Versace for a new fashion project. The Paper Planes hitmaker, real name Mathangi Arulpragasam, revealed the news while attending Paris Fashion Week's Balenciaga runway show in France on Thursday (26Sep13). She told WWD.com, "I have a collaboration with Versace coming out in two weeks." She failed to provide further details about the joint project, but it is believed to be a line for Donatella Versace's diffusion collection Versus, which features work from a number of other artists and designers. The fashion collaboration will be a welcome distraction for M.I.A. - she is currently embroiled in a nasty legal battle with bosses at America's National Football League (NFL), who are suing the star for flipping her middle finger during her televised performance with Madonna at the 2012 Super Bowl half-time show.
