M.I.A.'s Middle Finger Malfunction

So. Eight years ago, there was the infamous Janet Jackson's Wardrobe Malfunction. Now, we have rapper M.I.A.'s "Middle Finger Malfunction":

The NFL and a major television network are apologizing for another Super Bowl halftime show.

There was no wardrobe malfunction, nothing like that glimpse of Janet Jackson's nipple eight years ago that caused an uproar and a government scrutiny. Instead, it was an extended middle finger from British singer M.I.A. during Sunday night's performance of Madonna's new single, "Give Me All Your Luvin.'"

In front of some 110 million viewers on NBC and uncounted others online, she flipped the bird and appeared to sing, "I don't give a (expletive)" at one point, though it was hard to hear her clearly.

Did you watch the Super Bowl halftime show? Whatcha think?

Previewed the commercials and got the recap afterwards online. Kelly Clarkson did a fantastic job on the National Anthem. MIA gets notoriety for bad behavior. And Mrs. Brady doesn't have a very attractive mouth.

Well, she got what she wanted: publicity. I didn't even know she existed until now, and I've heard her name A LOT these days. And I'm not even American or interested in sports.
