M.i.a Releases 'nfl Vs Mia' Video
M.I.A spoke up about the situation between her and the NFL following her infamous middle finger moment whilst performing alongside Madonna and Nicki Minaj at the Superbowl in 2012. Last week, her lawyer claimed that they were fighting the case and NFL were looking to slap a fine of 1.5m on the singer, as the gesture 'tarnished their reputation'.
M.I.A released a video expressing her thoughts on the situation, which you can watch HERE. She claims the young women dancing behind her were more provocative than her finger gesture.
“Now they’re scapegoating me into figuring out the goal posts on what is offensive in America. Is my finger offensive or is an underage black girl with her legs wide open more offensive to the family audience?”
