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."

Leave her alone. She’s gonna be 16 soon and then 17 and then 18, and then she might show her knees and then what's gonna happen?

My husband and I are not planning on getting a divorce. I know Alex Rodriguez through Guy Oseary, who manages both of us. I brought my kids to a Yankee game. I am not romantically involved in any way with Alex Rodriguez. I have nothing to do with the state of his marriage or what spiritual path he may choose to study.
