Madonna Sounds Off on M.I.A.

Almost a week after the rest of America weighed in on M.I.A.’s finger flash at the Super Bowl, Madonna finally put in her two cents. “I wasn’t happy about it,” she told Ryan Seacrest in an interview Friday morning, saying she hadn’t been clued in about the British hip-hop artist’s gesture. “It’s such a teenager, irrelevant thing to do,” Madge said, and it really put a damper on the halftime show’s “feeling of love and good energy and positivity.” She nevertheless accepted M.I.A.’s apology for the incident and said she remains a huge fan of the “Paper Planes” rapper. In other news, Madonna’s creepy stalker is in custody after escaping from a mental institution.
