Would YOU do this?
Rapper M.I.A., who is nine months pregnant, is nominated for two Grammys, including Record of the Year and Best Rap Song. Her due date is Sunday, the same day of the Grammy Awards.
So what's she going to do? Watch the show at home in her fuzzy slippers? Naw. She's going to PERFORM!
"They say that you're often late the first time, so I'm planning to go" to the show, the 31-year-old told USA Today. "We'll see. People are trying to get me to relax and focus on the baby. It's like being in parallel universes."
Momlogic OB/GYN Dr. Suzanne Gilberg-Lenz says while performing THIS pregnant is certainly ambitious, it's not unsafe in any way. "In terms of loudness, the vibrations may be felt by the baby, but it's more important for the mom to protect her own hearing," she says. "The baby has amniotic fluid, placenta, the uterus and the mom's abdomen protecting him or her from bouncing, noise, vibrations, etc. So sound is not a real issue."
M.I.A. plans on performing at the Oscars on February 22 as well, just a few weeks after she has the baby.
Talk about stamina!
