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.

To late Blaze- I've got 3- Beautiful-Educated-Self supportive- Feet on the Ground- Drug & Rapper Free- not easily munipulated- and yes- High self Asteem kids! Look- I realize that you realize that your misgivings will follow your mislead ass around for a ............. Lifetime? Fucking background checks huh? Just can't get around them! I'm talking about the word of mouth background checks- Blaize! . Good luck! Good Luck to you & Tyrone! Match made in Heaven. Your parents- just gotta be proud!


@Reed: So according to you, if a person dates a person of another race, it automatically means that their self-esteem is at an all time low? Wow. You just proved that almost everything I've said about you is right. You are simply an IDIOT. May you never reproduce.


I'm sure you did- ONCE! Fucking Self Asteem must have been at an all time low? Listen- its damn near embarrassing sitting here arguing with your ass! Go back to Tyrone. Dealing with you is lowering my standards. Only 20? Oh my God- you are swimming in an Ocean of Disarray aren't you. Listen- here's the thing! If your Free Spirited & think the world is Milk & Honey & full of misunderstood people? Give it some time- you'll get over it.


@Reed: Tyrone? L.O.L. You seem to think that because I called you out on your shitty comments about black people that it must automatically mean I'm dating a black guy. No, I'm not dating a black guy, (although I did once) I do have a job, (and it's not the dirty job you implied in your other post) and I don't have any kids. I'm not even 20 yet. If standing up for other people makes me a whining bitch, then I'm PROUD To be a bitch. Just as you don't want to hold your tongue, I refuse to hold mine.


@Blaize- No you African American loving bitch- No KKK here. I am part of the "TOBOT" group- Tired of biting our tongue. Now roll over and go get Tyrone some Cornbread. America was around long before you came along! Whining like a Bitch- Where's my Freedom? Get a job. Pay your Bills and feed your kids. Maybe you even can get Tyrone to make an effort ..... After of course you post his Bond.


@Stan: None of the bad behavior you mentioned is limited to black people. Plenty of women who aren't black have flashed body parts that shouldn't be flashed. Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, and Paris Hilton have all flashed their vaginas. I've seen plenty of white kids being noisy in libraries as well. @Reed: Yes, Reed, there are African Americans who go to libraries. Both of you old men are perfect examples of what's wrong with America. I wouldn't be surprised if you were closet KKK members.


A Black in a Library? Give me a minute to get my mind around that one.
