Upstaging Madonna is not something many artists dare do, but a task M.I.A manged to do whilst performing at last weekends Superbowl – and the Queen of Pop is NOT happy.
During the NFL games halftime show, the British rapper, 36, took to the stage with 53-year-old Magde and rapper Nicki Minaj, to perform a rendition of their new single. But while Minaj, 29, followed suit and stayed safely in Madonna’s showdown, M.I.A’s simple but controversial middle finger gesture caused a stir and more importanlty, stole Madonna’s thunder and reined all over Madge’s parade. **Oh no she didn’t’**
Now Madge has hit back, stating the Paper Plane stars stunt was ‘childish’ and an 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.”
Errmm, did Madonna forget not too long ago she swore on live TV during her Live 8 show which was on before the 9pm watershed? Just saying…
