Madonna Attacks M.I.A’s Middle Finger Gesture — She’s Pissed
When M.I.A gave the audience the finger at the Super Bowl, I was pissed. And apparently, I’m not the only one. Madonna was equally pissed, saying, “I didn’t know about it until I left. I was really surprised. I didn’t know anything 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 one of the those things, it’s such a teenager, irrelevant thing to do … what was the point? It was just out of place.” Not only would I be furious about M.I.A.’s desperate need to garner controversy, I’d also be pissed that she stole the spotlight. News articles everywhere were more interested in the ramifications of M.I.A’s action than Madonna herself. So here’s my message to M.I.A — When an icon such as Madonna invites you to her party, you better behave.
