M.I.A in a burka at 2010 Spike TV Scream Awards

Controversial rapper M.I.A just jumped up a crazy level in our books, as she specifically demanded that her backing dancers wear full burkas.

Her tour rider already includes cheese, nuts and a bottle of strong alcoholic drink absinthe for every location, but the Sun reported that her new demands are slightly more specific. She demands

Three female extras for each show, each between 20 and 25 years old.

She has also asked for the girls to have

Stage presence and groove to the music on stage for the full duration of the show wearing full covered burkas.

We’re not sure that M.I.A should be demanding anything more expensive for her rider as she will be personally be liable for any fine imposed  on the NBC for her swearing at the Superbowl half time show on February 5. Yikes!
