M.I.A. wants to wear a white suit when she gets married
The `Paper Planes` star - who has 16-month-old son Ikhyd with her fiance Benjamin Bronfman - insists she has never wanted to don a traditional dress and veil to walk down the aisle because she was so impressed by a mystery couple`s marriage outfits.
She explained: "I`ve always wanted to get married in a whitesuit.
"I used to work at a Kodak lab in England, cutting photos after they`d come out of the wash, and in one I saw this couple getting married on a beach in whitesuits, and their kid was there."
The rapper - whose real name is Maya Arulpragasam - recently relocated her family from Brooklyn, New York, to an upmarket area of California to give Ikhyd a better quality of life.
She explained to America`s GQ magazine: "I wanted an environment where I could have a lot of friends and family come and stay. That was the important part for me.
"And in New York I wouldn`t have been able to afford some place where I could have, like, all my friends come and crash out and where I could still have a baby."
M.I.A. dotes on her son and is amazed at the youngster`s abilities.
She added: "Today he climbed out of the pen, he had to take the door kind of off the hinges and move it aside to get around. And that`s amazing, that he`s figured it out already - and that he`s strong enough to do that."
