The NFL and a major television network are apologizing for another Super Bowl halftime show.If you book lowlifes on your show you can pretty much expect they'll do something stupid or offensive.
There was no wardrobe malfunction, nothing like that glimpse of Janet Jackson’s nipple eight years ago that caused an uproar and a government scrutiny. Instead, it was an extended middle finger from British singer M.I.A. during Sunday night’s performance of Madonna’s new single, “Give Me All Your Luvin.”
In front of some 110 million viewers on NBC and uncounted others online, she flipped the bird and appeared to sing, “I don’t give a (expletive)” at one point, though it was hard to hear her clearly.
What was funny to me was within about 30 seconds I saw no less than six tweets from others warning Madonna not to break a hip. I think for the most part the world was laughing at the show. Seems to me that booking Madonna was NBC and the NFL's way of flipping off all of us.
