Madonna on M.I.A. Middle Finger: Out of Place, Childish

by at . Comments

Add Madonna to the list of those who thought M.I.A.'s actions during halftime of Super Bowl XVLI were stupid and childish.

A few days after she anchored a mostly positively-reviewed show, The Material Girl called in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest and reacted to M.I.A's action as follows:

"I was really surprised. I didn’t know anything about it. I wasn’t happy about it.

"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.. here was such a feeling of love and unity there. What was the point?"

In a separate interview, Madonna later told Carson Daly that M.I.A. did call her to apologize, but the iconic artist concluded of the action:

"It was just out of place."

I agree with Joe there. 100% Oh, and Maris, I'm with ya there about the poiitlcs. I don't think I could date someone who was voting for McCain. I'd think it'd be a good first thing to know.Great post Rob!!


Has Madonna forgotten what she used to do at M.I.A's age? I believe she appeared to masturbate on stage at one of her concerts. She was in her thirties then. How "teenager" was that!! Now she finds in her heart to chastise someone else.


If anyone deserved a flaw in her own show- its Madonna.


So Madonna is trying to chastise another person for pulling "vulgar" antics JUST like Madonna is used to doing... yeah, hypocrisy at its finest.


i dont know who is mia but well i dont think its really unusual for the middle finger to pop out suddenly.


Who cares bout a middle finger?m.i.a. is sexxy hotter than madonna and rocked it up there..ppl kill me getting old and dried up n turning hypocrite..


wow m.i.a is one of the most un popular people in the universe !!! she has a nose bigger then Jupiter so who cares about her... I know I don't.Please people do not pretend that you guys had never held the middle finger!


Guess what............ If you live long enough u will get old as well.... That's if you live long enough.


i DISLIKE Madonna, she's an old playboy who needs to retire..


MIA is a Brit of Sri Lankan origin. Last I read, she was engaged to the heir of the Seagram's fortune; dude is American and of Jewish descent. Either way, she made herself look stupid. You're performing with Madonna idiot! smh....
