M.I.A. Coming Out Of Retirement

After all the success M.I.A. has had recently with her song Paper Planes, she's decided to come out of retirement. The song was featured in Pineapple Express, and it pretty much got everyone listening to her music. So now, only two months after announcing that she was playing her last show ever, she's changed her mind and is deciding to make more music.

She tells Entertainment Weekly, "With the success of 'Paper Planes', there's pull for me to make another record. Even my mum believes in me more. It's a nice encouragement. But I was planning my life as a fishing woman on the outskirts of Cambodia. That's a joke."

M.I.A. also says if she did go through with quitting, she might have tried to get into movies. She says, "I think I would have gone and made a film. As an artist you want to play around with mediums and see if you can get the point across in a different way. I wanted to stay an outsider and prolong the process of getting accepted."

We're just glad she's back! She has such a unique sound and we cant wait to hear more of her.
