Madonna Not Amused By M.I.A.’s Middle Finger

More Super Bowl halftime show fallout: Madonna didn’t like M.I.A’s performance either! “I was really surprised. I didn’t know anything about it. I wasn’t happy about it,” she told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show Friday morning, referring of course to Maya’s improvised middle finger. “I understand it’s punk rock and everything, but to me there was such a feeling of love and good energy, and positivity it seemed negative. It’s such a teenager…irrelevant thing to do…there was such a feeling of love and unity there what was the point? It was just out of place.” The plastered grin Madonna sported throughout the entire 13-minute set leads us to believe it genuinely was. Why take away any of the joy that comes from standing next to RedFoo and SkyBlu? We urge M.I.A. to run fast and far—we hear the punishment sent down from her Madgesty makes paying FCC fines look like spending a day at the petting zoo. Yet if anything, Madge, at least M.I.A. took some of the heat off of your trip and questionable—discuss, again—performance.
