MIA includes backing dancers wearing full covered burkas as part of her gig rider.

The singer's list of requirements for her tour have been leaked and include cheese, nuts and a bottle of absinthe for every location.

According to the list, the star has demanded "three female extras for each show, each between 20 and 25 years old", The Sun reports.

She adds that the dancers need to have "stage presence and groove to the music on stage for the full duration of the show wearing full covered burkas".

Meanwhile, MIA will reportedly be personally liable for any fine imposed on NBC after using the middle-finger gesture during Madonna's Super Bowl half-time show on February 5.
