M.I.A On Pregnancy: I’ll Have to Wear Caftans if I Get Any Bigger
“Paper Planes” singer M.I.A. is getting ready for her first child with fiancé Benjamin Brewer and joked with USA Today that if she gets any bigger she’s sporting a caftan!
The 31-year-old musician (born Mathangi Arulpragasam) isn’t letting her super-pregs status stop her, having recorded three tracks on the ga ga worthy Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack and finishing up a new album for next year!
“I think my baby is going to start off making club music. That’s all I’ve been listening to. Of course, you never know,” she tells the newspaper. “We actually don’t want our kid to do music, so we’re going to buy it loads of instruments … so that it will completely rebel and go the other way.”
Of how her pregnancy has affected her music, M.I.A. says, “When I sing, I have to be aware that someone can hear me inside. It’s really strange. I definitely feel less angry.”
