M.I.A. flips the bird during Madonna's halftime show

INDIANAPOLIS—To be completely honest, I had no idea who M.I.A. was prior to Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime performance.

But despite the fact that Madonna headlined the very live and most viewed concert of the year, M.I.A stole the show after flipping off the camera during the song, “Give Me All Your Lovin.”

At least when Janet Jackson caused a controversy during her infamous “wardrobe malfunction” eight years ago, it gave the male viewers watching the telecast something to get excited about.

This stunt was clearly designed to cause a stir and capture headlines during the biggest sporting event of the year, but I can promise you that after I hit the “publish” button on this article, I’ll go right back to not caring who M.I.A. is or pretend to have an interest in whatever the hell she has to say.
