Is M.I.A. going MIA? Apparently that’s what the Sri Lankan songstress is threatening after announcing her past three concerts were her “last.” Fresh off the heels of canceling her summer European tour, performances at New York’s MOMA, Brooklyn’s McCarren Pool and Tennessee’s Bonnaroo festival over the last two weeks saw the M.C. thanking legions of fans for attending what are to be her last live performances.

“This is my last show,” she announced to three separate crowds, ”And I’m glad I’m spending it with all my hippies she added to Bonnaroo revelers Friday night. So is she quitting the tour, or quitting for good? Surely it would be a premature retirement for an artist who has only released two albums, despite sky-rocketing to success over the last four years.

“I’m canceling because I feel like physically I just have to stop for a second,” she said, according to "I think for an artist like me, it’s so important for me to be in the streets and go to the same shop every day and see the same people and, like, communicate.” “Communicate” if you must Mathangi, but you, and your neon sequence shorts will be missed dearly in the meantime. Or forever. Whichever.
