Word on the street is that the heavily pregnant M.I.A who performed alongside Hip-Hop’s Rap Pack at the 51st Grammy Awards on Sunday night was in fact suffering from contractions. The Paper Planes singer who is pregnant with her first child was due to have the baby on February 8th, the same day as the Grammy’s was apparently told by her doctors it would be unwise to perform. But she went ahead and performed anyway. Never ignore the advice of a medic, even if it might be your only chance to perform with the likes of Weezy, Jigga, Ye and Tip on the Grammy stage.
Still no news as to if the baby has been born. Let’s hope she doesn’t try to compete in the naming game of her baby with Erykah Badu and Jay Electronica who named their daughter Mars Merkaba the other week.
