M.I.A. is pregnant
Maybe M.I.A. was talking about “retiring” from live performing recently because she is pregnant? This is a pic of the singer onstage last night in Brooklyn (lifted off of Brooklyn Vegan):
The baby’s daddy is presumably M.I.A.’s new fiance Benjamin Brewer of the New York-based dub punk band The Exit.
Best of luck to Ben and M.I.A.!
