M.I.A.'s Super Bowl middle finger rattles television bosses

M.I.A.'s performance alongside Madonna at last night's Super Bowl Halftime Show went smoothly until she flipped off the camera crew that was filming the live set. 

The 'Paper Planes' star was caught giving the middle finger during 'Give Me All Your Luvin'' and American television bosses at NBC have been quick to apologise for the "inappropriate gesture". 

NBC spokesman Christopher McCloskey said:

"We apologise for the inappropriate gesture that aired during half time. It was a spontaneous gesture that our delay system caught late."

Despite this minor setback, M.I.A. was excited about joining the Queen of Pop onstage to showcase their collaborative new single and tweeted about her arrival at the Lucas Oil Stadium earlier that day:

"MIA in the buildin, jus [sic] walked in same time as The Giants, they in suits and black briefcases, that sh*t crayyyyyyy."
