LOS ANGELES (AP) -- M.I.A.'s planned performance at the Grammys might be more labor intensive than most.

The pregnant rapper is nominated for two Grammys, including record of the year for her hit "Paper Planes." She could give birth to her first child at any moment. Yet she has agreed to perform during the Grammy telecast, to be aired live on CBS.

M.I.A. says she'd been asked to perform with Jay-Z, T.I., Kanye West and Lil Wayne on "Swagga Like Us." It's based on a sample of "Paper Planes."

She joked that being on stage with all of them would be so exciting it could induce labor. She also joked that she would like to have a helicopter on standby in case that happens.
