Video: M.I.A. flips off Super Bowl audience during halftime show
Flippin' out in America: M.I.A. FTW!
C'mon! How did the NBC network brass not see this one coming? Seriously? Let's see... tap one of music's most subversive artists who has a well known reputation for flaunting convention and ruffling feathers just for the sake of it to perform in front of a global audience and then expect her to behave herself. Pshaw! Yeah, right. In case you missed it or you were simply wondering what the hell that yellow blur was that flashed across your screen during M.I.A.'s verse during Madonna's "Give Me All Your Luvin'," here's the thing that everybody will be talking about tomorrow. Page down to see M.I.A., er, flipping out and not giving a single shit.
