M.I.A. ends premature retirement based on movie success

    First music fans didn’t have time to get to know M.I.A., and now we never really had time to miss her. The Sri Lankan hip hopper said in an interview that she is no longer fully retired from the music business. Though she is sticking by her statement that her Bonnaroo performance was her last live show, the recent success of “Paper Planes” in ads for the movie Pineapple Express leads her to believe that she has at least one more album in her. More importantly, M.I.A. added that her mother is more hip to her groove.While she didn’t say when she would be able to hit the studio, M.I.A. finished by saying that her second career as “a washer woman in Cambodia” has been put on indefinite hold.
