MIA has published the phone number of a journalist on Twitter, after apparently taking offence at an article she had written about the singer.

Writing on the social networking site earlier today (May 27), the singer insinuated that the phone number was her own rather than that of the journalist Lynn Hirschberg, who conducted the interview for New York Times.

MIA tweeted the number followed by:

"CALL ME IF YOU WANNA TALK TO ME ABOUT THE N Y T TRUTH ISSUE, ill b taking calls all day bitches ;)"

However, the phone number goes directly to Hirshberg office number.

MIA later wrote that she will publish her own version of the article on her Neet Recordings homepage this weekend, tweeting:

"NEWS IS AN OPINION! UNEDITED VERSION OF THE INTERVIEW WILL BE ON neetrecordings THIS MEMORIAL WEEKEND!!! >>>>"

The article in question features Hirschberg and MIA speaking about her links to Sri Lanka, her visa problems in the US and her family.

It is not Hirschberg's first difference of opinion with one of her subjects, she infamously got on Courtney Love's bad side following a 1992 Vanity Fair piece on the singer.
