Rapper [lastfm link_type=""]M.I.A.[/lastfm] caused major drama when she lifted that middle finger during the Big Game Halftime Show last Sunday. Not only did she offend the viewers but the Queen of Pop, [lastfm link_type=""]Madonna[/lastfm] is upset with her as well.
Madonna spoke with Ryan Seacrest this morning, “I wasn’t happy about it. 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, kind of irrelevant thing to do. But on the other hand, there was such a feeling of love and unity there, what was the point? It was just out of place.”
After the Ryan Seacrest interview Madonna spoke with Carson Daly and said M.I.A. apologized, “She has. I know she feels bad. I accept her apology, but you know, I think she still has her head in the sand right now.”
As for Madonna’s all around experience for the halftime show, “I wanted to choose fun people. Nicki and M.I.A. are cool because they have youthful energy and I think they’re badasses in their own right. And LMFAO, to me they’re just pure joy and they crack me up, I love Cee Lo. I’ve always loved his voice. I feel like he’s somebody really up-and-coming. It was like a dream come true for me. I got to work with a lot of people that I wanted to work with.”
