With seemingly every Super Bowl Halftime show comes an FCC complaint about some inappropriate gesture during the performance. Following a costly mishap during the 2004 Superbowl Halftime Show where Janet Jackson "accidentally" unveiled her left breast, M.I.A. pulled a stunt at this years dizzying and over-the-top cheerleader themed production of Madonna's new hit, "Give Me All Your Luvin'."
In an effort to garner more attention, as if her new single that's received over three million YouTube views isn't enough, M.I.A. flipped the bird and slipped the line, "Imma say this once/yeah/I don't give a sh*t," into her small verse during Madonna's song. NBC apologized immediately, stating that, "It was a spontaneous gesture that our delay system caught late."
You'd think M.I.A. would happily oblige to an invitation to perform with Madonna-- no premeditated F You's 'discreetly' employed. But this is what M.I.A. does. And as annoying as her distasteful "f*ck you" to the American public was, it was fitting for an obnoxious show where the only memorable part was Cee-Lo Green. Madonna's new hit tops the annoying charts anyway, being so immature that you might think it was intentionally written for Madonna's daughter Lourdes, or maybe Avril Lavigne.
Watch the offending moment below.
