It’ll be a game-time decision for M.I.A. come February 8 – baby or Grammys?
“[They’re] due the same day!” the musician wrote on her MySpace blog on Friday.
M.I.A., whose real name is Maya Arulpragasm, just received a Grammy nomination for Record of the Year for her summer hit, “Paper Planes,” and is also pregnant with her first child.
“So either way I figured I’ll win,” she wrote.
But if she gets a Grammy, the outspoken London-by-way-of-Sri Lanka artist promised to keep quiet on one thing.
“OMG if I get it, I will never diss the Grammys evr again!” she wrote.
The song, from 2007 album “Kala,” caught fire after its inclusion in the “Pineapple Express” trailer in June, peaking at No. 4 on the Billboard charts. And though she and fiance Benjamin Brewer have a baby on the way, the busy artist – who also has a fashion line and co-wrote a track on the “Slumdog Millionaire” soundtrack, which is being released on her own label, N.E.E.T. – isn’t slowing down.
“[I’m] in the studio, on the grind,” she wrote.
