Madonna’s Super Bowl Halftime Show Included Singer Flicking You Off (Video)

Madonna put on an impressive set for the Super Bowl 46 halftime show. There was both a Roman and Egyptian theme (so it was like Caesar’s Palace and the Luxor) with her costume changes for the visual aesthetic. And she included her classic hits “Like a Prayer,” “Vogue” and “Music” among her auditory aesthetic. But it was a show that both the NFL and NBC are apologizing for today. Yes, just like in 2004.

Last night, the 53-year-old singer once known for very risque outfits did not have a wardrobe malfunction, nothing like the glimpse of Janet Jackson’s nipple eight years ago that caused an uproar. It wasn’t even Madonna’s fault at all. Instead, it was an extended middle finger from British singer M.I.A. during the performance of Madonna’s new single, “Give Me All Your Luvin.”

M.I.A. flicked off NBC’s 110 million viewers and appeared to sing, “I don’t give a (expletive)” at one point, though it’s hard to hear her or read her lips effectively..

After a crazy Cubs week, full of news and groundbreaking signings like those of Trever Miller and Matt Tolbert combined with another eye-opening list of prospects from BA that no one has ever thought of before, it is hard just to catch one’s breath.

Can you sense the sarcasm? Good, because I am laying it on pretty thick.

And as I am typing this, word breaks across the wire that the Cubs landed themselves and 18-year-old Cuban prodigy. I am pretty sure that I had something to with that by typing the opening paragraph at the precise time I did. You are welcome.

And I digress, it has been rather quiet so new prospect lists are a good way to create conversation and discussion and debate. Who is the Cubs best prospect? I have no idea. That is as honest as I can be.

So, let’s shake it up with some ramblings on a Friday. And I sure hope this can create some good banter to get the Super weekend started.
