M.I.A. flips middle finger during Super Bowl halftime show
There wasn’t a wardrobe malfunction at the Super Bowl halftime show, but there was a naughty action by one of the performers … and it wasn’t Madonna.
M.I.A., who joined Madonna on stage in Lucas Oil Stadium to help sing ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’,’ appeared to flip the middle finger to the camera as the song came to a dirty word, which she stopped short of saying.
But as you can clearly see in the photo above, instead of saying the word, M.I.A. “flips the bird” toward the camera – and the millions watching on NBC at home.
NBC was apparently late on its delay and allowed the act to be broadcast — at least in some areas. Some followers of @USATODAYSports on Twitter reported, however, that their screens went blank for a few seconds at that point in the show.
