Madonna put on an impressive set for the Super Bowl 46 halftime show. There was both a Roman and Egyptian theme (so it was like Caesar’s Palace and the Luxor) with her costume changes for the visual aesthetic.

It wasn’t even Madonna’s fault at all. Instead, it was an extended middle finger from British singer M.I.A. during the performance of Madonna’s new single, “Give Me All Your Luvin.”
