  • When M.I.A. performed "Give Me All Your Luvin'" with Madonna and Nicki Minaj at the Super Bowl XLVI Halftime Show, she controversially extended her middle finger to the camera. The NFL responded by filing a lawsuit against M.I.A. for $1.5 million in damages and demanding a public apology from her. The ever-provocative singer-songwriter references the issue here over a 76-second Hit-Boy beat: "Let you in to Super Bowl you try to steal Madonna's crown. What the f--k you on about?"
