M.I.A. Flips Off Camera During Super Bowl Halftime Performance

by at . Comments

What would a Super Bowl halftime show be without a little controversy, right?

While all boobs remained in place, and no wardrobes malfunctioned, during the Madonna-based performance tonight, rapper M.I.A. - who joined The Material Girl and Nicki Minaj on stage for a rendition of "Give Me All Your Luvin" - is making headlines for the exposure of another body part.

She raised her middle finger to a NBC camera.

In a couple hilarious statements, the NFL first wrote of the gesture and image above:

“There was a failure in NBC’s delay system. The obscene gesture in the performance was completely inappropriate, very disappointing, and we apologize to our fans.”

This, naturally, led to a response from NBC, which reads: “The NFL hired the talent and produced the halftime show. Our system was late to obscure the inappropriate gesture and we apologize to our viewers.”

So, should M.I.A. get fined for the move? Of course. Not because it's especially lewd, simply because it's such an incredibly lame cry for attention.
