M.I.A., THE BRENTWOOD MOM, GIVES SUPERBOWL AUDIENCE THE FINGER?

At first, when we saw British rapper M.I.A. give the finger to her Superbowl audience during Madonna’s performance, we assumed she was some kid rapper scrambling to pull attention away from Madonna. But she’s much more than that – she’s an established musician, artist, human rights activist, fashion icon, and Oscar nominee! She’s also 36 years old and a mother living in the very posh yuppie–land of Brentwood, California with her three year old son. Her baby-daddy is Benjamin Bronfman of the Bronfman dynasty. (So she’s one of those Brentwood mothers with strollers that we gripe about.) She was warned by the network NOT to do anything offensive on the family show and although the gesture is no big deal, she knew it was a bad idea. But we’re talking about her, so maybe it was worth looking a bit foolish.

    PR stunt
    google MIA
    she now has more fans

    500k is a drop in the bucket to the wealthy so all in all she will come out ahead, more press from a world wide platform.

    Wow! Parents are not upset about the economy or another senseless war killing their kids but a middle finger is something to be outraged about?!

    Good and bad publicity is still a publicity that a prerequisite to fame.

    I think she’s from Sri Lanka and she is also the daughter of a diplomat or something like that

    She is from Sri Lanka, and I saw her interviewed on Bill Maher’s Real Time and I was impressed with her intelligence.

    This gesture, is out of line with my first impression of her.

    Strutting like an monkey and flashing her red crotch was more offensive. Low REnt behavior.

    “By Hello

    I couldn’t agree more. It seems to be a quirk of the somewhat puritanical American mindset—not unlike the hooha made about Janet’s (Jackson’s not Charlton’s :) ) exposed breast a few years back.

    That said, it was a move that certainly worked well to angle the spotlight in her direction; McDonna was said to be “fuming” over the stunt, yet it’s EXACTLY what Madge herself would have done to incite a little controversy and get some attention.

    Apparently this girl has just broken her engagement with Bronfman, but considering his old man owns Universal—which OWNS NBC—she probably wasn’t worried about any fallout over this.

    Overall sounds like a WIN for M.I.A. (whoever the eff she is! :D ).

    MIA’s ad-lib cheer: “F.U. MADONNA! :)

    Looks like the attention-whore baton has been passed—er, rather, wrenched out of Madge’s meathooks LOL.

    Reminds us of that award show years ago—where someone had the bright idea to pair RuPaul with Milton Berle.

    Berle’s line was: “I used to make my living wearing a dress, too.”

    RuPaul’s (unscripted) response: “And now you wear a diaper.”(!!) Milton just about passed out from shock, the crowd roared; a new star was born! ;)

    Send her monkey ass back to Colombo and see how much she can earn in 10 minutes there!
