M.I.A.'s baby boy drops
All you cats who thought M.I.A. looked extra-super-duper-pregnant during her performance at the Grammys last weekend were right on the money. The British-Sri Lankan rapper (real name: Maya Arulpragasam) went into labor right after the Feb. 8 show, and gave birth to a baby boy on Feb. 11 in Los Angeles. “He is healthy, fine, beautiful and the most amzing (sic) thing ever on this planet,” M.I.A. wrote on her MySpace blog. “Me and baby are putting our tour dates for 2010 together and making mix tapes and figuring out a way to break out of the hospital!” No name yet for the baby, whose father is Benjamin Brewer, the son of uber-wealthy Warner, Vivendi and Seagram honcho Edgar Bronfman Jr.
