M.I.A.

Controversial singer/rapper has warned fans to steer clear of search engine Google and social networking websites like Facebook because she's convinced they were designed by U.S. intelligence services to spy on the public.

The "Paper Planes" hitmaker, real name Mathangi 'Maya' Arulpragasam, is adamant the websites are being used by government agencies like the CIA to secretly gather personal information about its users and she avoids using the internet as a result of her suspicions.

She tells Nylon magazine, "All governments are connected to Google. Governments can shift their search engines so only what they want you to see comes up. I want kids to be aware of this digital circumstance."

"Everyone on the internet is like, 'Oh my God, come and join Facebook!' They're all so optimistic... and really, everyone is f**king you up behind the screens. And I don't like that. It makes it difficult for me to interact with my fans knowing that. Google and Facebook were developed by the CIA, and when you're on there, you have to know that."
