There are at least two artists with the name MAA.Read More...
1) MAA (real name Tanaka Maria), born January 25, 1986 in Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, is a Japanese electronica/pop artist, formerly known as MAR, the vocalist of short-lived rock group MarBell. After the group disbanded, she debuted in September 2010 with the electro-pop single "GHOST ENEMY", under the stage name MAA, which comes from her name Maria.
With thirteen tattoos on her body (the alligator on her back being her symbol), she is known for her rough nature due to her outgoing and carefree personality. Her exotic looks, from her American father and Japanese mother, have drawn comparisons to many Western pop artists. Her eccentric attitude has earned her the nickname, "psycho Cinderella".
In December 2010, her debut mini-album, "Monkey Kingdom" was released. MAA said, "My papa calls me a crazy monkey, so I titled the album Monkey Kingdom, as in my own kingdom," she explained. "If people could have the chance to get to know me through this album, I think that'd be a good thing."
