M.I.A. Flips The Bird During Super Bowl Halftime Performance

By Gotty™ / 02.05.12

In case you were on refreshment refill run and missed it, Madonna performed a gladiator-influenced set during the Super Bowl XLVI halftime show. Enough about that. Monday morning’s water cooler talk will likely center around M.I.A.’s one-finger salute to the television audience while sharing the stage with Madonna and Nicki Minaj during the song “Give Me All Your Luvin.” NBC issued a prompt apology, calling the gesture “a spontaneous gesture that our delay system caught late.” While the move wasn’t as racy as Janet & Justin’s 2004 nip slip but expect the NFL and the networks to revert to playing it safe by inviting Nickelback for next year’s show.

Abridged clip plus Madonna’s full performance, both below.
