Hydrangeas wilt in the shadow of Madonna, but M.I.A. better grow eyes in the back of her head because no one upstages The Madge.
M.I.A. let her middle fly in a salute to Super Bowl viewers. It wasn’t as ESCANDALO! as Janet Jackson’s accessorized nipple, but it was still a weave snatchin’ move. Madonna addressed that and whether or not Britney Spears will be joining her for the single, ‘Girls Gone Wild.’
On M.I.A.’s finger added to her Smote Upon Sight – “I was really surprised. I didn’t know anything about it. I wasn’t happy about it. I understand it’s punk rock and everything, but to me there was such a feeling of love and good energy, and positivity it seemed negative. It’s such a teenager…irrelevant thing to do…there was such a feeling of love and unity there what was the point? It was just out of place.” (Skip to 7:20)
On Britney Spears being too old to siphon fans from – “Oh god no! I don’t want to repeat myself. I never do that! I am having auditions all next week. Then I’m going to shoot the video for ‘Girls Gone Wild’ after that, then I start rehearsals,” she says. Madonna also squashed rumors that Britney may make an appearance on her upcoming single “Girls Gone Wild” saying, ”No, it’s just little ol’ me.” (Skip to 14:20)
On being humble as she entered on a thrown carried by gladiator/slaves – “When my throne docked on the stage…then getting my cartwheels on the bleachers right. Once I got past those two moments I knew I was sailing home.” However while performing her hit “Like A Prayer” with Cee Lo Green she “was overwhelmed. I started crying. I felt an incredible sense of warmth, love, and support. To see an entire stadium light up like candles it was…like a religious experience.”
And now that we are done beating a dead horse, who wants to go get some dim sum?
