M.I.A. is more than a little badass

If you didn’t catch the Grammys last night, watch this clip of M.I.A. singing what might be the catchiest tune of my entire life (save, of course, this one)…
(If you’re having trouble viewing the video, click here for another clip.)
She’s nine months pregnant! In fact, her due date was yesterday. Not only is performing while pregnant an incredible physical feat, it’s also socially gutsy. In a culture that finds pregnant women (and breastfeeding mothers) repulsive unless they’re barefoot and cooking up some pie, it’s delightful to see M.I.A. ignoring the sexist bullshit and taking the stage with her usual force.
