Madonna's Super Bowl Performance Upstaged by M.I.A's "Spontaneous Gesture"

Madonna’s performance at the Super Bowl was as energetic and grand as we all expected it to be; what we didn’t expect, was M.I.A to disregard the audience and flip them off.

The N.F.L. & N.B.C. has profusely apologized for the incident, which comes 8 years after Janet Jackson’s famous wardrobe incident. N.F.L. spokesperson, Brian McCarthy, said “The obscene gesture in the performance was completely inappropriate, very disappointing and we apologise to our fans.” N.B.C. is calling it, a “spontaneous gesture”, a phrase that will probably become part of our television dictionary.

What was M.I.A thinking? With 110 million people watching the show, did she think they wouldn’t notice her flipping them off? Hopefully people will forget about the incident and remember Madonna’s performance which also features Nicki Minaj, LMFAO and Cee Lo Green!

P.S. I’m having doubts that Madonna is actually 53 –  how does she look so young and where does she get her energy from?!
