M.I.A insists she doesn't like stage collaborations at festivals.
The 'Double Bubble Trouble' singer, who will headline London's Lovebox festival in July in Victoria Park, isn't a fan of sharing a stage with someone but claims there are a few ways she would like to bring something different to her live shows.
Asked if she ever does on stage collaborations at festivals, she told TIME Out magazine: ''No, I'm really boring like that. That's an American hip hop thing, and I want a whole bunch of other sh*t. It would be nice to have a hologram of Julian Assange. I [also] want this dancer from Africa, he's the only guy on the whole planet who can dance as fast as he does. He's from this tiny village. I really want him to be a part of the show, but I think I'll have to actually go there and help him to get a passport. It's not very easy.''
The 38-year-old star will play Lovebox the day after her birthday but admits she doesn't really like the celebration.
She said: ''I don't really do anything for my birthday. I have a birthday complex, and just don't deal with it. All my family are coming, and my little nephews and neices are old enough to come and see me now.''
