M.I.A. Flips The Bird During Super Bowl Halftime Performance (Video)
It didn’t sent off a wave of controversy quite like the wardrobe malfunction during Super Bowl XXXVIII’s halftime show, but M.I.A.’s bird-flipping performance has certainly overshadowed the singing of Madonna, Nicky Minaj and L.M.F.A.O. one day after they took the stage at Lucas Oil Stadium for the Super Bowl XLVI halftime show last night.
While making a guest appearance during the singing of Madonna’s newest single, “Give Me All Your Luvin,” M.I.A. put some extra emphasis into her line, “I’mma say this once, yeah, I don’t give a sh-t,” by giving the one-finger-salute to the worldwide audience.
Many viewers have voiced their displeasure over the incident, and the NFL and NBC have since issued an apology. But let’s be serious for a second. Is this really that big of an issue? I’m not sure how you feel about the gesture, but in the words of M.I.A herself, “I’mma say this once, yeah, I don’t give a sh-t.”
