Madonna Unhappy With M.I.A’s ‘Irrelevant’ Gesture

I hope that after this weekend the world will be done talking about M.I.A. flipping the bird at the Super Bowl, myself included. It’s just, not important and it makes my eyes tired just thinking about it.

How many times in your life have you seen someone giving the finger? More than usual probably if you’re an asshole like me, but it’s pretty unlikely to make anyone at all go into cardiac arrest. Even nuns are like “meh, I’m over it.”

Bless Ryan Seacrest’s heart for creating more faux-shocking Super Bowl news when he asked Madonna during his KIIS-FM radio show about the incident, to which she responded, “I wasn’t happy about it,”  Continue reading “Madonna Unhappy With M.I.A’s ‘Irrelevant’ Gesture”

M.I.A.’s Dance Routine More Shocking Than Bird-Flip

Sunday was Madonna’s big day, sports fans too. The queen of pop took the Super Bowl stage (nearly shattering her hip early on) with several big faces in music such as LMFAO, Nicki Minaj, Cee Lo and M.I.A. taking the stage alongside her.

M.I.A., the British Sri Lankan best known for “Paper Planes” plus raucous comments and behavior, shocked the FCC and a few viewers when she flipped off the camera and crowd during her verse in “Give Me All Your Luvin.” The real thing to keep in mind is that I didn’t notice and neither did anyone else. It’s NBC and the NFL’s fault for drawing attention to it. Continue reading “M.I.A.’s Dance Routine More Shocking Than Bird-Flip”

Madonna’s ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’ Video Rips Off Everything And Is Better Than Nothing

In some sick way it brings me great joy to tell you that the new Madonna video (and song) is suckish. From a marketing standpoint it’s still a bad idea, but must have seemed like a good one.

Certainly her “people” figured it would be brilliant to release it on time for The Super Bowl, especially since it features a bunch of brutes in red jerseys holding umbrellas over her head, which surely would have otherwise melted into the street like a discarded burrito.

Madonna’s “cheerleaders,” Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., have both had better videos in recent years, especially M.I.A. with “Bad Girls” which is far superior and came out only a few days earlier. Why M.I.A. has a higher budget for special effects is beyond me. Madge seems to have spent about $3,000 total.

Video: M.I.A. – “Bad Girls”

I smell another huge hit for the woman who rightly popularized ginger-genocide, perhaps one as big as “Paper Planes.” M.I.A. is back after a questionable last CD (2010’s Maya) that contained a total of one good song, “XXXO.”

And here she is with “Bad Girls,” perhaps the one good song on her upcoming album which she will finish work on after her performance with Madonna and Nicki Minaj at Super Bowl XLVI.  Continue reading “Video: M.I.A. – “Bad Girls””

Madonna To Collaborate With Nicki Minaj & M.I.A.

After rumors swirled about a potential Madonna collab with Mrs. Paper Planes and Ms. Super bASS, M.I.A. herself has confirmed it on Twitter. (Where else?)

Apparently the three met over coffee in New York, and when I say “the three,” it does feel, deservedly so, like a LOTR reference. “Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky.” Mhmmm rings, or superstars of pop.  Continue reading “Madonna To Collaborate With Nicki Minaj & M.I.A.”
