Madonna Isn’t Impressed With M.I.A.’s Middle Finger Super Bowl Stunt

Madonna shared her feelings on the whole M.I.A. flippin’ the bird stunt during her Super Bowl halftime show performance on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show this morning.  Madonna says that the whole thing was a bit immature:

“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.”

I have to say I agree with Madonna.  It was an incredible opportunity for any artist to be included in that event and what M.I.A. did wasn’t very respectful, in my humble opinion.

Madonna did say that M.I.A. apologized for her actions.

    seriously. why are ppl even talking about this? and bad mouthing M.I.A… its a MIDDLE FINGER. no one even seen the finger. this is the medias fault for harping on it cuz everyone always focuses on the negative to make money on a good story. including blogs like this.

    If they hadn’t said anything I wouldn’t have even noticed this. I had to watch a video I found of it twice before I even figured out when it happened… not sure why they made a big stink or why anyone was watching the performance THAT closely. Goodness gracious.
