She said,

A lot of things online are wrong. Most of them still claim that I do porn. I haven't done porn in five years.

Even after five years of leaving the porn industry in 2014, Mia has been one of the biggest names in the industry and she continues to be ranked on porn websites.

Apart from this, she talked about her struggles with the ideas of 'shame' and 'acceptance' when it comes to her past.

When he (a radio show host) introduced me as a 'pornstar', I felt a mixture of emotions. One is a huge cloud of shame because me being on that show and allowing them and their audience to call me that sets a terrible tone for me, which is that I have pride and acceptance of my past. Neither of those things has come to me yet. I am still working on the acceptance.

In the interview, Mia opened up about her life, her childhood, and her prolific Sports career. After she moved to America with her family in 2001, she had a difficult time adjusting in school. This was because soon after 9/11 happened, kids bullied her by calling her a 'terrorist'.

She also talked about the time when she got threats from the ISIS, after an adult video where she was wearing a hijab went viral.

Instantly that it was posted, it was like wildfire. ISIS sent me death threats, they sent me a Google Maps image of my apartment. I stayed in a hotel for two weeks after that because fear really set in. They photoshopped a picture of me on a beheaded body holding my head that was photoshopped on there saying ‘you’ll be next'.
