Madonna
is lashing out at M.I.A.'s bird-flipping grab for attention during the Super Bowl Halftime show last weekend -- claiming the crude gesture was a "teenager ... irrelevant thing to do."

Madonna called in to "On Air with Ryan Seacrest" this morning -- saying, "I was really surprised. I didn’t know anything about it. I wasn’t happy about it."

Madonna told Ryan, "I understand it’s punk rock and everything, but to me there was such a feeling of love and good energy, and positivity, it seemed negative. It’s such a teenager ... irrelevant thing to do ... there was such a feeling of love and unity there. What was the point?"

Madge added, "It was just out of place."

Madonna just called in to Carson Daly too, saying M.I.A. has since apologized to her over the incident.

Funny she called M.I.A. teenage behavior when she was the one that needed help to do cartwheels on stage trying to act like a teenager. Get over yourself Madonna you haven't been relevant in 10 years and it's not going to change anytime soon.

Maybe it's not her all time best song, but I think Madonna's BRAND NEW SONG "Gimme All Your Luvin" is a LOT better than some of the crappy garbage that some people refer too as "music" these days ... especially some of the rap music.

SOME of the rap music guys like Snoop Dog, Eminem and Run DMC created some good music. Some of the rap and pop artists these days manage to have top 10 hits and their songs are just terrible. It's all flashing their cash, fancy cars, acting tough, teats and azz, etc. Same old thing over and over. They need learn their craft better and make some quality songs.

You're all envious of Madonna, you morons. M.I.A. can take his apology and shove that. He's an immature ahole.
