M.I.A. Flipped Off Millions Because…

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooZportzM.I.A.

mia super bowl halftime show middle finger flip bird money fines excuse

We're just waiting on an official statement from M.I.A. (though we wouldn't be too surprised if she didn't give one).

But until then, we're just gonna have to rely on a source close to her…

While there are plenty of reasons why M.I.A. could have told millions to eff off, according to this source, she did it because:

Adrenaline and nerves, caught up in the moment, wasn't an attempt to make any kind of statement.

Inneresting… but didn't she sign those papers binding her to fines if she did anything inappropriate??

If that's the case and she really did it because she just wasn't thinking, then that's just plain stupid!! What?? It is!!

We all make mistakes, sure, but this was a BIG ONE!! And ya don't have to be a holier than thou prude to know that!!

If she wants this to blow over asap, she should just come clean and offer a legit apology… and maybe a big donation to a children's charity.

We know she's a badass but there has to be a children's organization she loves, LOL!!

    Look at the crappy role madonna gave her in the show. I think she was flipping off madonna. It's just stupid though.

  2. 2

    Get off your fucking pedo-stal. Make a donation to children's charity? You post links to gay porn and nudity without a second thought. Links that are easily to accessible to children, and then you have the nerve to lecture about a middle finger? You really are an immature piece of hypocritical rubbish.

  3. 3

    Re: all about it – madonna just made her a star, boobie!! lolllllll! go M.I.A.!!

  4. 4

    At first I was really upset that she would do that, but then I wondered if she lost her mind and forgot where she was for a sec. Let's hope it was just nerves. But she should still pay that fine.

  5. 5

    M.I.A. hates Gaga!! Really hates GAGA!! Madonna choose M.I.A. for a reason. NOW M.I.A. is giving Gaga a stomachache!! LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL Madonna wins again!! Mastermind / genius QUEEN BITCH!! :-)

  6. 6

    Lol wow seriously it's 2012, it's just a middle finger.

  7. 7

    Re: FatAzzPooHeadDoodle – How is M.I.A giving Gaga a stomachache? Gaga is a big enough star that she doesn't have to be anyone's back up cheerleader. Not to mention, Gaga already made a song with her name in it and it was called "Bad Romance".

    Secondly, while it was stupid for M.I.A to flip off the camera at such a "family oriented program" as the Super Bowl (bunch of hypocrites), I don't think she should apologize and. O one should expect her to. Who wants a hollow ass apology? If she were really sorry, she would've issued an apology last night. I get tired of people trying to bully apologies out ox adults. She did it, she's not sorry, and she's probably at home laughing at how all this publicity is going to help her album sales.

    Come on people, she flipped the crowd off and said Fuck on mike because she is ghetto, just.plain.ghetto. You can take the girl out of the ghetto but you can't take the ghetto out of the girl. She totally stole Madonna's thunder on what Madge herself said was one of the biggest gigs of her life. I'll bet Madonna hires a hit man who flips her off before he blows her away. Ghetto trash.

  9. 9

    Oh please, she knew exactly what she was doing. They are grilled before the superbowl by a dozen people, signing contracts and making sure you don't do anything your suppose to. She just wanted a hey look at me moment, most women are attention whores.

  10. 10

    It wasn't JUST flpping off. She also sang, "I don't give a SH__" then flipped of America. That is also against FCC rules. Watch it again. Then fine her and the NFL.

  11. 11

    she's an idiot…..

  12. 12

    [Part 1] It's funny how angry people are getting over this. When I think of athletes, I don't exactly think of humility or wholesomeness. It's not like football players go into the locker room and read the Bible and put each other on time-out stools whenever someone swears or makes a sexual remark. Sorry, all you religious parents, but your kids are going to know the truth, sooner or later. People flip people off and swear at people while driving. Eventually, your kids are going to realize that profanity exists in the world. That doesn't mean they are going to all-of-a-sudden start getting low grades in school, doing meth, and planning on a career being a stripper or drug dealer. Let your kids see the reality of the world. Make them TOUGHER. It's a lot harder to survive in today's society if you're a weak, easily-offended person. Isn't that sort of at the center of the appeal of sports, anyway? You've got to be TOUGH to be a successful competitor!

  13. 13

    [Part 2] Furthermore, people are making assumptions as to the purpose behind M.I.A. flipping off the camera. This is so anti-intellectual it actually makes *me* mad. You can't just run with an assumption and throw your rage around. Without being M.I.A. and knowing what was in M.I.A.'s head at the time, there is no way to know with certainty what motivated her. I'd say it's worth using just a tiny bit of effort and making the connection that she flipped off the camera during the end of her rap, where she says, "I don't give a shit." Yeah….

    Re: Lady Who?
    Your post is proof that this site is also accessible to IDIOTS

  15. 15

    its funny for being such a bully you are oddly holier than thou…

    with that said, it wasnt a big deal, it kind of went in with the line of the song.

  16. 16

    Re: rickraton – You proved that long ago. Get your head out of Hilton's ass.

  17. 17

    are you all really serious?? is just a finger…. seriously americans are so sensitive… and they call themselves "the Land of Freedom"?? LOL more like "the Land of Judgemental, narrow-minded Hypocrites…" thank god we still have Europe where true freedom is demonstrated when stuff like this are like.. whatever…

  18. 18

    I did not see the middle finger thing and nor did my guest.
    when did that happen?

  19. 19

    Re: alemeh2 – It happened at the end of M.I.A.'s rap segment in "Give Me All Your Luvin'." I think the sensors blurred the screen, but they blurred it a tad too late.

  20. 20

    She looks ignorant!

  21. 21

    Seriously who gives a fuck. I thought it was funny. It made Maddona's boring performance more interesting.

  22. 22

    Lol at the fucken dumbass americans. "It must be a personal fuck you to the whole country." Fucken morons. You act like no American has ever done this kinda shit. Oh n way to jump on the bandwagon Perez, you couldn't give a shit in the first post you made about this, now you care all of a sudden?
    Lol at U.S.A the home of the brave, so brave that they have a meltdown over a middle finger.

  23. Lushh says – reply to this


    I'm pretty sure 99% of americans have flipped the bird. It's an american thing to do lol. I don't understand why it's such a big deal but people LOVE controversy. I'm pretty sure she did it bc she was in the zone and just felt like saying fuck yeah! It's M.I.A she doesn't give a fuck.

  24. Lushh says – reply to this


    That song sucks balls anyways.

  25. 25

    Re: Lady Who?

    Oh shut the fuck up you silly twat.

  26. 26

    American's heads are so far up their own asses, they honestly cannot see or think clearly. I can't believe I'm getting so angry about this finger thing but watching the U.S and the reaction the media had to this incident is SO pathetic. Perez - A childrens charity? Oh fucking get real, she didn't hurt any fucking children with the middle finger. Perez, if Madonna worked that 'finger' into a lyric that had the word 'shit' in it you'd say 'OMG she's so fierce, I wouldnt expect anything less LOLZ' Americans are so covertly racist it makes me sick

  27. 27

    I'm counting down the minutes until the bitches on 'Thew View' incorporate this 'controversy' into a segment of theirs. Eugh.

  28. 28

    She is trashy, and far from classy. She never should have been on that stage.

  29. 29

    I honestly don't know why people are getting upset over this. It's not that serious. So, she flipped the bird? Does it matter? Besides, do kids even watch the Halftime show? If they are, they should be in fucking bed during that time. I don't think M.I.A. should apologize because there is nothing to apologize for. This is just most Americans being big cry babies. I love M.I.A. and if I were her, I wouldn't apologize and I wouldn't give two shits about the whole thing.

  30. 30

    OMG who gives a friggin' crap???!!! I can't believe anyone cares about this! Talk about blowing something waaay out of proportion. Maybe if she'd kissed a girl people wouldn't be so bothered ;P

  31. 31

    because,,,she is an ugly ass no talent classless whore

  32. 32

    "We know she's a badass but there has to be a children's organization she loves, LOL!!"
    she is not badass she's a fucking DUMBASS

  33. 33

    Re: KarrieBelle – PAY no attention to FATASSSHITHEAD,, he is a complete waste of oxygen

  34. 34

    Re: kallengirl – the actual fine will be to nbc, nfl and nbc have hold harmless in favor of nbc. contract with nfl that she signed agrees that SHE must pay ANY EXPENSE arising from her actions.

  35. 35

    Re: SaintThomas92 – so, how many guns can you own??

  36. 36

    Re: Lushh – she will when she has to pay the$ 50000 .FCC FINE

  37. 37

    Now this is complete B.S. why would you even try and speculate what M.I.A would say after her half time show performance ..from a close friend of hers.. is just Hearsay!!! Until she actually tweets and talks to the public about her intentions about flipping off the camera then we'll believe she was thinking. Just Please!! stop your stupid attempts of getting your stories from 2nd or 3rd parties. It's called the "horse's mouth" for a damn reason Perez .. not your horse mouth!

  38. 38

    call me desensitized but is this actually an issue? do people actually care? You could see it for a milisecond until the camera crew lazily attempted to blur it. I think this is just taking attention away from the fact that everyone on that stage lip synched.

  39. 39

    and that Madonna had the nerve to use the 80's vocal track for vogue/ like a prayer

  40. 40

    none of these whores have talent is why they have to have the special effect for attention this woman needs to be taken to court ..

    as for madonna oh my absolutely divine xxx

  41. 41

    She was given the chance of a lifetime and she blew it.

  42. 42

    I don't think it she did it to hurt any one particular person, but for whatever reason she did it for, she's now gonna have to pay a fine, so her lose.

  43. 43

    That makes sense, typically when I flip the bird I don't actually mean it. It's just in the moment or being silly. I think if she wanted to start controversy or wanted attention she would have been pulling this shit a lot longer up until recently

  44. 44

    Re: tallguy10 – She's already a fairly successful artist on her own means (not just music), and maybe not successful in terms of mainstream but this was barely the chance of a lifetime and I think she will be just fine after this whole incident blows over which will be in two weeks anyways

  45. 45

    Um, well she does it in the video as well… nothing new… and not surprised.

  46. 46

    LOL! You said it!

  47. 47

    Omg any little thing a person does becomes a big fucking deal! She flipped off the camera, big deal. And yeah I believe it's her nerves / adrenaline and people opposing and saying thats bs clearly have not performed. I know how it is when your nerves get the best of you.
    Jebus Perez ofc you would have to start a huge fiasco over this. The Media / society enjoy negative attention / stories. A lot of people just wanna talk shit to just talk shit and most people on this site hate like there are no tomorrow. Where the f is all this negativity coming from? Some of y'all need to relax or stop reading celeb news if you feel that negatively about it.
    I looooove M.I.A and I really don't see the big problem with this .. it's so petty. -____-

  48. RB7 says – reply to this


    typical Americans once again going over the top on something completely minor. she's from England, and over here doing that wouldn't of caused such an unnecessary overreaction, it would of been forgotten about by now. grow up !!

  49. 49

    o please I'm sure not a lot of people noticed that middle finger untill after the fact the media got it out of proportion..an MIA just did for attention - who cares anyway…why are things like that get so much attention..there are people dying and no one cares that much..

  50. 50

    Re: Lady Who? – if you would let your children visit this site and roam the web without supervision then you are worse than a pedophile yourself. so stfu!

  51. 51

    I only watched the halftime show and not the game. I never even noticed her flipping the bird. only a handful of people probably did. anyway holding your fingers in a certain fashion is considered vulgar? god i hate americans! America is so backward they are one step away from making women wear burkas.

  52. 52

    OH my GOD it makes me sick stop throwing a fucking "WE HATE AMERICA PARTY" Like Europe is so fucking cool. I've been there youre all dirty motherfuckers. Go take baths and quit hating losers.


  53. 53

    She flipped off millions because she is a classless no talent and that's what classless no talents do to get attention.

  54. 54

    Clearly she did it for attention. I honestly did not know who she was and why they kept putting the camera on her. I thought she was just some backup dancer. I knew who Nicki Minaj was so that made sense that she was on camera but who is this nobody? Now she's getting attention which is what she wanted. Can't we just drop it so she doesn't get any more attention?

  55. 55

    Re: NookiesWA – everything you say is for shock value and attention, so shove it up your ass, all your views on women and the world are wrong.

  56. 56

    She's not a star in my book, not even a blink or twinkle. It was tasteless and rude and she showed the world her IQ level - ESPECIALLY when Madonna closes with "world peace" at the end.

  57. 57

    …what was this talenless hack even doin there in the first place ? didnt even notice her….what a joke of a show,…any one can go out and dance to recorded music..wut a joke…

  58. 58

    How is that just plain stupid? When you're caught up in a moment, you don't realized what you're doing.

  59. 59

    Big fuckin deal! Nobody saw it anyway.

  60. 60

    Re: gretel – Great comment, direspectful, no words can say what a waste of anyones time watching this hag!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  61. 61

    People do stuff like this all the time when they're on an adrenaline rush. Seriously, GET OVER IT. I bet majority didn't notice it until the internet started plastering the photo everywhere. No one I watched it with did. By the way, Madonna's performance would have SUCKED if it was just her and a few dancers. It's sad she needs like hundreds of dancers to help back her up. If you want to see an impressive halftime show, look at Michael Jackson's 1993 halftime. THEN tell me if Madonna was impressive alone. She wasn't. The breakdancers and the guy bouncing on the rope were impressive.

    Re: raypearson – LOL WTF?? guns?? I guess you really are american hahahaha

  63. 63

    Re: violethill – lol, ur still spinning?! lolllllllllllllllllllllll holy fuZZ :-)

  64. 64

    Honestly, Americans need to get over it. It's not a huge deal. It was all of what? One second? Parents and others need to get over it. Their kids are not going to be scared for life. I can garentee that they have seen it before from their parents. Better learn now then later that this is the 21st century. Live like it.

  65. 65

    Re: RachelSarahM – Although I agree with you on this whole MIA 'controversy', that Europe comment made you sound so dumb. It's a continent, not a country and I'm guessing you didn't visit every single country.

  66. 66

    I don't remember there being such an outcry when Kate Winslet's character flipped the bird in (family-friendly) Titanic or when Johnny Depp, William Shatner, David Bowie, Stephen Colbert, Mini Me and even Madonna did it (during interviews, press conferences, concerts). How is this any different?

  67. 67

    BIG DEAL…..
