Rapper M.I.A. has been dropping a slew of remixes this past week for her latest single 'Bad Girls,' which will all appear on her 'Bad Girls -- The Remixes' EP (due out on July 3). M.I.A.'s newest remix was crafted by Danja's production company N.A.R.S. and it features Missy Elliott and Azealia Banks -- two ladies who know how to spit lyrical hot fire.

Madonna said she was more nervous about her 2012 Super Bowl halftime performance last week (Feb. 5) than any other in her career -- and understandably so, since she had to adhere to the NFL's rules, knew she was stepping into the Holy Grail of American sports and that she is a perfectionist who likes to practice. She likened it to winning a war and surviving, so it was an important performance for her. So it's no shock that M.I.A. did not maker Madge happy after flipping the middle finger during her part.
Madonna has remained mum about rapper M.I.A. flipping the bird during the Super Bowl halftime show, save for a terse comment via her publicist, who said "It was not rehearsed or planned. No comment from Madonna."
While Madge may not be issuing a public statement about the matter, we wouldn't be surprised if she is fuming over the incident, since she promised a clean, nipple-free show and it was her show, not M.I.A.'s. The 'Bad Girls' singer stole Madge's thunder a little -- we know Madonna doesn't take too kindly to that!
NBC and the NFL have issued separate, curt apologies over the fact that pop star M.I.A. gave the finger to the camera during her solo rap part, which was part of Madonna's Super Bowl 2012 halftime performance.
M.I.A., who is rather anti-mainstream and rebellious, flipped off the camera and it was caught on tape and on camera. It was the only drama/hiccup/controversy during Madonna's tame, but entertaining set.
Madonna's highly anticipated video for 'Give Me All Your Luvin',' her collaboration with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., is both a twisted look at the high school fantasy and a blatant promotion for her Super Bowl performance. The clip opens with text: "Fans can make you famous, a contract can make you rich, the press can make you a superstar, but only luv can make you a player."
Madonna previewed about a minute of the video for her brand-new single 'Give Me All Your Luvin'' during 'American Idol' tonight (Feb. 2.) The whole shebang drops tomorrow (Feb. 3) via her YouTube channel, but this blink-and-you'll-miss it clip set the stage and gave us an idea of what to expect. It involves dancing and football -- there's lots of both.
