Controversial rapper M.I.A. has revealed that the NFL is trying to shake her down for $16.6 million as a result of her one-finger salute, in which she flashed her middle finger at the camera (and for all the world to see) while performing as part of Madonna's Super Bowl Halftime Performance in 2012.
Lily Allen -- is anyone calling her Lily Rose Cooper? -- returned to performing and in an unusual 'fashion,' literally. The singer, who had retired from music and just birthed her second daughter, Marnie, hit the stage at a raunchy lingerie fashion show in Paris (Feb. 26).
While rap may have started out as a mostly male-dominated genre, the ladies who have been successful in the rap game over the years are just as good at spitting hard and fast rhymes as their guy counterparts. But out of newer rhymestresses like Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. and legendary names like Missy Elliott and Lauryn Hill, who gets your vote for the best female rapper?
