M.I.A. Middle Finger: Madonna Says Act Was ‘Teenager Thing to Do’

It’s been almost a week since Madonna’s halftime show at the Super Bowl — and for the most part, the reviews have been positive. However, the one dark cloud hovering over Madge’s sporty triumph came courtesy of her duet partner, M.I.A. In case you missed it, the always-edgy rapper used her turn in front of the cameras to flip the middle finger at the TV audience … and Madonna is none too pleased about it!

During an interview this morning (Feb. 10) with Ryan Seacrest, Madge admitted that she “wasn’t happy about” the M.I.A. bird flip. The Material Girl went on to slam the actions of her Give Me All Your Luvin collaborator, calling them a “teenager, irrelevant thing to do.”

Ironically, the always-controversial Madonna played her first Super Bowl performance pretty safe. After weeks of speculation as to what stunts Madge may pull, the mother of four stuck to singing her old classics like ‘Open Your Heart,’ ‘Express Yourself’ and ‘Like a Prayer.’
