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.

She's so no class,does not surprise me. All the other dancers were so good, Madonna has lost her golden touch, she was so homogenized. She can't keep up w/LGaga or CAguelera. Show was more an advertisement for her music/albums.

How low class. People who give the finger and use the word "haters" are trashy as hell and I instantly quit listening to them, big dummies

Such garbage, millions of people may be offended by a raised middle finger! What's wrong with this country; it seems like half of us are as dumb as a bucket of sand.

She's a pig. Give her a shot at the big show, and that's all she can do to stand out. She's pathetic and that's why she's there on Madonna's coat tails.

Largest stage you could ever ask for and you make an ass out of yourself. Classless Act.

Well that's NOT a OOPS or SORRY didnt mean it, that is TOTAL disregard for TV these DAYS. Fine her dumba$$ for the gesture and show these people that you cannot get away with that type of BEHAVIOR, maybe in the HOOD where that HOODRAT belongs but not the SUPERBOWL. Most of the RAPPERS today assume they are UNTOUCHABLE because they are a STAR, after reading ALL the crap TMZ has been pushing down our throats these days, most of the rappers today either have TAX Liens against them, own back CHILD SUPPORT or have a ARREST WARRANT for their BUTTS. When will they LEARN oh yea thats right THEY NEVER WILL!!!!
