Rapper M.I.A. was forced to cut short her set at a music festival in England after 200 revelers rushed the stage. The hip-hop star, real name Mathangi Arulpragasam, was headlining the Big Chill festival in Herefordshire on Saturday, August 7 when she asked fans to join her for her hit Paper Planes.

But M.I.A. was left stunned when 200 members of the audience clamored over the barriers and officials decided to end her set early. A statement from festival organizers reads, "A spokesperson for M.I.A. thanked the wonderful audience at the Big Chill for the fantastic reception received."

"And apologized for having to cut the set short due to overwhelming demand for fans to come on stage when only a few were expected." No injuries were reported in the incident.
