In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Vassar favorite M.I.A. hinted that she may be returning to the music business after what has been a brief "retirement." As we posted in June, M.I.A. announced to her audience at Bonnaroo that it was her "last show ever."
Now M.I.A. tells EW:
"Well, it was my last ever show. And it still is. I stopped touring after that and I didn’t want to make music again. I was quite happy to just leave it all behind. I was happy with what I had achieved. Now, with the success of “Paper Planes,” there’s pull for me to make another record. Even my mum believes in me more [laughs]. It’s a nice encouragement. But I was planning my life as a fishing woman on the outskirts of Cambodia. That’s a joke.
