Forgetting that Madonna flips people off and swears during every performance, everyone is taking it in turns to vilify M.I.A. for the Super Bowl middle finger. Madonna even phoned in to On Air With Ryan Seacrest to bemoan how ‘Irrelevent, negative, and teenage’ it was for M.I.A. to pull focus by flipping off 111.3 million people during the show broadcast with negligible delay to prevent such things from happening. And now Nicki Minaj has done the same while pretending she doesn’t bring dildos on stage at her own concerts: ’My first feeling was disappointment, only because of my respect for Madonna,’ said the rapper. ‘I’m a coocoo lady too, but I’d never be able to do it off the strength of Madonna. I just hope they don’t penalize Madonna… Madonna knows the artist that MIA is, and it was Madonna’s decision to take that risk with all of us. [Madonna has] done some crazy things becoming the icon that she is so that’s why she was able to forgive MIA. I love MIA. But me personally I wouldn’t do it off respect of Madonna, because I wouldn’t want any backlash on her.’
