[photogallerylink id=144305 align=left]It’s clear Madonna worked hard on her performance at the Super Bowl Halftime show. Countless hours and rehearsals that all led up to a live national event that was supposed to celebrate how awesome Madonna still is. But then here comes underground sensation, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]M.I.A.[/lastfm] flipping the bird right in the middle of her near flawless (we saw you slip off that bleacher!) set!
It should come as no surprise that Madge is a bit P.O.’ed about the whole thing. Her publicist issued a statement saying quite shortly, “It was not rehearsed or planned. No comment from Madonna.” A source close to M.I.A. came to the Sri Lankan singer’s defense saying “she wasn’t thinking. She was caught in the moment and she’s incredibly sorry.”
But sources claiming they know Madonna reveal the pop diva was not in the least bit sympathetic “Madonna wasn’t impressed. She prides herself on professionalism. M.I.A did nothing similar in rehearsals. Nobody knew she was going to pull this stunt.”
Truth is, it’s likely Madonna is more mad that M.I.A. stole the spotlight from her performance. The source continued, “Madonna wanted to put on a world-beating performance. But everyone ended up talking about this girl’s middle finger.”
True story, here we are…talking about her middle finger…
Madonna “Give Me All Your Luvin”
