Madonna had a little chat with Ryan Seacrests at his KIIS-FM radio show this morning and with no doubt, you know Ryan asked her about the M.I.A’s middle finger gesture during their Super Bowl halftime show performance.
The singer said: “I didn’t know about it until I left. I was really surprised. I didn’t know anything about it.” Madonna found our about the gesture in the elevator on her way out of the venue. She added: “I wasn’t happy 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…there was such a feeling of love and unity there what was the point? It was just out of place.”
Madonna delivered an amazing Super Bowl halftime show with her featured girls Nicki Minaj and M.I.A, who joined the Super Bowl halftime show controversies along side Janet Jackson who flashed her goodies (nipple) while performing back in 2004 with Justin Timberlake…
M.I.A’s case wasn’t nothing nasty as kids described the Janet Jackson’s case but the star clearly let the excitement get the best of her during the live show and flipped her middle fingers to fans while performing the unclean version of the song “Give Me All Your Luvin” reported Deadline Hollywood.
NBC network released an apology statement saying: “We apologize for the inappropriate gesture that aired during halftime, it was a spontaneous gesture that our delay system caught late. There was a failure in NBC’s delay system.” The NFL added: “The obscene gesture in the performance was completely inappropriate, very disappointing, and we apologize to our fans.”
