When the rumor went around that M.I.A. named her little bundle of hipsterness Ickitt, she immediately pounced on her MySpace to shoot that shit down. TMZ says that according to his birth certificate, M.I.A.’s baby isn’t an Ickitt, he’s an Ikhyd. If we have to get detailed, his full name is Ikhyd Edgar Arular Bronfman. So, I’m guessing his name is pronounced Ick-heed? Totally different than Ick-ittt (as my eyes go ’round).
The bitch who originally leaked the name, probably has an extra perky tongue, so they gave us its instead of eeds. Bitch who originally leaked it, call me. That tongue sounds like the business.
And even though the name Ickhyd is dangerously close to sounding like a name dumb whores regularly call me in hate e-mails, I like it better than Ickitt. We can still call him Icky, but the itt part has gone far away.
