Super Bowl Halftime Show

M.I.A. Flashes Middle Finger

2/5/2012 5:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

MIA middle finger at the Super Bowl
It wasn't Janet Jackson's nipple, but M.I.A. flashed a body part of her own during the Super Bowl halftime show just now -- her middle finger!

It went down as she and Nicki Minaj joined Madonna on stage for their song, "Give Me All Your Luvin."

It's been eight years since JJ changed the face of television forever after revealing her breast at the end of her SB performance with Justin Timberlake. The Patriots were playing on that day as well and came away victorious. 

So we ask ...



*Thanks to TMZ readers Aaron and Jamie for the quick screen grab.

Calm that down, I can't endure another Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Janet & Justin damn near messed it up for good.

Classy. Just one of many reasons it was the worst half time show in history.

Madonna should be embarrassed...the show was horrible, her voice was ridiculously bad (even when pre-recorded!) and no one wants to see her old vadge flappin' in the wind. Seriously, that was just SAD.

She also was making hilarious facial expressions when the three of them picked up their pom poms and did a "hands in the middle" thingy.
Her face was just making fun of the whole thing. Like you would.

How on earth is it gutsy to flip a bird on national TV? Seriously? Any moron can do that. It was about the stupidest thing she could do, right after that smooth move just before the bird where she pulled the front of her skirt aside to make sure we got a great crotch shot. Classless, common, and completely out of her element - that's what MIA was. The bible thumpers are stroking out - and we'll get to watch the New York Philharmonic for next year's halftime show. Yep, she's a real trail blazer, that one.

Didn't someone say "sh!t" too? Thought I heard that. That being said, the real crime was the horrible lip sinking. Fortunately, no real musicians were harmed during the halftime show.

The finger? This confirms MIA has the maturity and class of a fifth grader.

The middle finger was not at us - it was meant for her stylist.

It could have been worse. Madonna could of had a wardrobe malfunction.
