M.I.A shocked a festival crowd in America at the weekend when she announced that her performance would be her last ever.

“This is my last show, and I’m glad I’m spending it with all my hippies,” M.I.A told festivalgoers at the Bonnaroo Festival.

The singer's comments, which the New York Times says were reiterated three times, come just days after she cancelled all of her forthcoming European tour dates.

M.I.A, who announced her engagement to Benjamin Brewer onstage last month, said that she was suffering from exhaustion.

“Like, I love connecting with my band, but I want to actually help them and be a part of peoples' lives. Which is really hard when you're on tour...It takes a lot out of you, physically,” she told NYMag.
