Shock and Awe

Who knows, maybe M.I.A. just wanted to show off her new manicure…

A crude display of my Photoshop "skills"

Singer M.I.A.’s half-time show performance at the Super Bowl stirred up controversy when she was caught flipping television viewers the bird. Predictably, many were offended by her action. More shocking however, was Madonna’s stance on the issue.

Madonna criticized the action, noting that “it’s such a teenager… irrelevant thing to do … there was such a feeling of love and unity there, what was the point? It was just out of place.”

The fact that she was shocked and appalled by the whole situation is rather amusing, mostly because Madonna built her career on shock and controversy.

It seems clear that M.I.A. will take the heat for her actions – really, there’s nobody else to blame. Though, there were things happening on that stage that were probably more offensive… But, who am I to judge – I’m not the FCC…
