Why won't awards shows leave this poor woman alone? M.I.A. just gave birth last Wednesday, but if Oscar producers have their way, she won't get any time off. Following her heroic performance (and subsequent shafting) at the Grammyson her due date, Bill Condon and Laurence Mark are so desperate to have her sing Slumdog Millionaire's "O Saya" (nominated for Best Original Song) on Sunday, that they've allegedly offered to let her perform in a "large bed" onstage. "We'll make it as easy for her as we can," says Mark, who the Guardian reports is also considering her request to appear via Will.I.Am hologram. If she actually goes through with any of this, we hope they'll at least give her a stupid award this time.
