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. And she included her classic hits “Like a Prayer,” “Vogue” and “Music” among her auditory aesthetic. But it was a show that both the NFL and NBC are apologizing for today. Yes, just like in 2004.
Last night, the 53-year-old singer once known for very risque outfits did not have a wardrobe malfunction, nothing like the glimpse of Janet Jackson’s nipple eight years ago that caused an uproar.

We already saw a massive fine and change to all broadcasting after Janet Jackson’s “wardrobe malfunction” during the Super Bowl. I wonder what the FCC is going to do about MIA flipping the bird to the world during the halftime show of Super Bowl XLVI? No doubt this has been planned by MIA for a long time. You don’t just say “I don’t give a s***” and flip everyone the...
For all the pomp and excess of Madonna's Super Bowl halftime extravaganza a single extended middle finger by guest singer M.I.A. is likely to be the most remembered piece of the show.
The gesture, accompanied by a barely disguised expletive, came during a performance of Madonna's new single, ''Give Me All Your Luvin.''' At the end of her lines, M.I.A...
The NFC and the NBC network apologized on Monday after British singer M.I.A. extended her middle finger during Sunday's halftime show of the Super Bowl.
With approximately 110 million viewers, M.I.A. flipped the bird and appeared to swear during Madonna's halftime show.
