Do you think it was cool or stupid of MIA to show up to the Grammy's (and perform!) on her due date?

  • Why does it matter! She obviously wasn't having the baby then lol. Who knows, performing could have helped jumpstart labor and providing she doesn't have any health risks performing wouldn't have caused any problems at all! You aren't disabled when pregnant.

  • I don't know who MIA is but if she felt fine then so what. No it's not stupid. She is pregnant not handicap.

  • I worked up until I went into labor with my kids. I don't think it was stupid for any reason.

  • I didn't even know she was pregnant. But IMO I don't think there's anything wrong with working up until your due date, and while I didn't see her performance I don't think that running around on stage would be the best thing to do while pregnant. Most woman are in heels while performing and there's lots of props to trip over, so I just don't think it'd be very safe. But if she just stood there and sang or something I guess it would be okay. It would of been hilarious had contractions started hitting while she was up there!

  • Chit you don't have to be in heels to trip and fall, I'm a good example of that!


    I think it was fine.
