Madonna Says M.I.A’s ‘Digit Malfunction’ Was A ‘Teenager, Irrelevant Thing To Do’ [AUDIO]

Madonna called in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” to discuss her Super Bowl performance including the controversy around M.I.A.‘s digit malfunction, and whether or not we can expect Britney Spears on her upcoming single “Girls Gone Wild.” Since stepping off the Super Bowl stage controversy has swirled due to Madonna’s guest performer M.I.A. raising a middle finger during the performance. Madonna confesses: “I was really surprised. I didn’t know anything about it. 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 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.” (Skip to 7:20)

The “Material Girl” shared that the most stressful moments of her Super Bowl performance were

Why is Madonna being held accountable for the actions taken by a legally-recognized adult? Seems to me that if there are to be fees, fines and some dirt to be thrown, lil’ Miss M.I.A. should be the recipient of these.

It’s a quaint term called ‘accountability’.

Whats funny is I didnt even notice it while watching, and probably would not have ever known about it except for the people who raised hell about how bad it was to see it happen. Now everyone knows about.

The half time shows are boring. Madonna and the other talentless mattress-backs lip-synching to music that sounds like someone threw a full China cabinet down a flight of stairs.

yep.. this from the woman, who in order to make her money, simulated m*sturbation on a couch at her concerts in the 1990s, in front of countless 13 and 14 year old girls.

Now that she is and English noblewoman, she is so far above all that silliness.

I despise her.

Is she talking about the girl she named ‘Lardass’, or some such, or does she have more than one daughter?

MIA was a big supporter of the Tamil Tigers before the Sri Lankan military finished them off. Even though the Tigers were listed by about every country as a terrorist group at the time it didn’t hurt MIA’s popularity. Her father was also a Tiger. The Tigers are the folks that assasinated Rajiv Gandhi and engaged in numerous suicide bombings. The superbowl always has lackluster talent and has beens who try to drive attention to themselves. As a result, I skip the halftime show and go out to eat.

she flipped the bird at NBC camera during her Super Bowl halftime performance with Madonna an Nicki Minaj on Sunday, February 5. The action has forced both NFL and NBC to issue an apology afterward.

“The NFL hired the talent and produced the halftime show,” said an NBC publicist. “Our system was late to obscure the inappropriate gesture, and we apologize to our viewers.” On the other hand, representatives for both M.I.A. and Madonna haven’t made any statement regarding the incident. [til now]

philanthropist - (n) - A very generous person or institution.

I had no idea there were people in this world who are SO rich that rather than becoming philanthropists themselves, they actually HIRE their own philanthropists...

Oh boy, here is an opportunity to hear/possibly see a world class skank, explain morality to me.

Ah..., no thanks. Sure wish I had more time right now. The next 2.5 days are clear, and I don’t want to waste any of them on at least hum-drum things.

I’m surprised that in Indianapolis, of all places, they didn’t have Johnny Cougar Mellencamp doing the halftime show.

She’s a Sri Lankan who supports the terrorist Tamil Tigers. The group that invented the suicide bomber. She should be in jail.

Mellencamp, while an Obama supported, actually did say some nice things about Sarah Palin, which shocked me.

I think the Who and Paul McCartney did great half time shows. But for some reason the NFL seems to think they need to hire “edgy” acts to play to get the teens to watch.

Odd thing is I doubt many teens really watch for anything but the commercials.

perhaps, but the halftime got the highest rating of the entire game

M.I.A. was a regular daily poster on twitter. Her last tweet was prior to the Superbowl performance.

She also broke up with her billionaire fiance record producer, moved back to England and left her daughter behind.

Her day is not done yet. The NFL has a breech of contract case against her and the FCC could still fine her personally.
