Super Bowl Summary
If you’re reading this in the afternoon, congratulations, you’re likely hungover from the Super Bowl! If you think the Super Bowl is some new band, well, all hope is lost. So yesterday was the NFL’s final game, the Super Bowl, and with it comes all sorts of music news. Madonna was the half time show act, with her new, youthful sidekicks, Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., plus additional guests in Cee Lo Green and LMFAO. Surprisingly, no controversy from Madonna – what did the bookies pay for that?! She just sort of tripped on some bleachers that were part of the stage, but her skirt didn’t fly over her head (for once). However, M.I.A. caused some problems, flipping the middle finger to impressionable youth worldwide. NBC and the NFL apologized on M.I.A.’s behalf, so now she can sleep at night.
If you missed it, and want to hear a few Madonna songs AND be flipped the bird by M.I.A., there are 13 minutes of viewing for you below. Seriously though, flipping the bird is nowhere near as bad as a nipple. And both are laughable in Europe as offensive – you can buy The Daily Star newspaper in Britain and see a pair of tits on Page 3 (this might be part of my daily routine). Watch NBC try to blur the action about a second too late. Someone is fired!
M.I.A. Gives You (Yes, YOU) The Middle Finger
