Madonna should have pulled M.I.A. To the side and warned her before the Super Bowl that in America, we don’t stand for overt foolishness and f*ckery onstage, Miley Cyrus be damned.
In America, when you go too far, you will have to pay. Sometimes with your career (cue the Justin Timberlake-Janet Jackson breasticle debacle from years past) or in straight up cash! So when M.I.A. decided to greet nearly a billion people on live television during the 2012 Super Bowl with her middle finger, it was all sh*ts and giggles then, but now? A judgment has been handed down and M.I.A. Has been slapped upside the wig to the run of $1.5 million dollars. For those of you taking count, that’s double what Janet was fined when she showed a little chest action.
Is this heresy or what?!
No word yet on whether or not M.I.A. Is gonna hit up her girl Vadge for a check, but we’re betting that she’s on her on with this one!
