Madonna Slams M.I.A.’s Middle Finger
M.I.A. pulling out a middle finger during the Super Bowl half time performance seemed pretty shockingly non-shocking when compared to oh say, Janet Jackson, and every other thing M.I.A. has ever done (example: banned videos, stalking a reporter over writing she ate a truffle fry) but its still been a hot topic. How did Madonna feel about the whole thing?
Not happy. She was upstaged by one finger. One! Instead of everyone talking about how great she looked and how it was the first step in her big comeback over Lady Gaga and the pop charts, they were talking about an obscene gesture made by someone who is not Madonna.
But of course she can’t say that. She told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show she thought it was something a teenager would do."I understand it’s kind of punk rock and everything but to me, there was such a feeling of love and good energy and positivity, it seemed negative."
