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 ...

get real    

I was really Shocked.. Madonnas Half time show Stunk. Way Way to may marching people on stage with her, took away from her, which is just as well. Poor thing fell once that I saw. Looked like Lips were moving but she wasnt really singing. Cheer leader routine didnt make sense. Why didnt she sing her Orginal song that everyone said Gaga copied? That would have stuck it to everyone. I didnt like any song she sang, and she had No excitement in her. Wow.

Just goes to show some rappers have to act like animals to get noticed! Such a shame. There used to be some actual talent in the rapping arena but not anymore! :(

I Think Madonna was Lip syncing. She had No Omph.. She fell once. I didnt like any song she sang. At least she could have done one of her Old Hits.... Her Cheer Leader routine was Sad. Way to many People on stage with her. She actually Lacked any Luster from her Glory days. It was sad.

No class at all. Raised in a barn, MIA? The show was fairly family friendly until she did this. Just looking for attention.

Pretty sad that the only way she could get noticed was to make such a classless unladylike gesture on stage. Madonna and the rest acted professional and classy during the performance, this piece of trash had to get her name out there and says volumes that the only way she could was to flip her finger?

Why not be recognized for your voice, or a great performance instead, but no, you had to flip the finger to get negative press in order to steal the thunder of the half time event?

MIA your name suits you, your actions were classless, and made yourself look bad.
