M.I.A. Flips Middle Finger During Super Bowl Halftime Show With Madonna
When the singer offered an assist to Madonna during Sunday's Super Bowl XLVI halftime show, she didn't experience a wardrobe malfunction, but instead it was viewers at home who got a shock when she flipped her middle finger to NBC cameras.
Donning a Cleopatra-style getup, the rapper (real name: Mathangi "Maya" Arulpragasam) flipped the bird directly into one of the cameras during her interlude of Madge's new single.
The gesture comes eight years after Janet Jackson experienced a nip slip wardrobe malfunction when her breast, covered with a nipple guard, became exposed during the 2004 halftime show with Justin Timberlake.
A $500,000 fine was levied by the Federal Communications Commission against CBS for airing the controversial Jackson moment.
