SuperBowlMadonna (2)

The fashion world was buzzing over the Givenchy fashion featured in Madonna’s half time performance for the Super Bowl. M.I.A. also rang up some attention-seeking points when she gave the finger (see image on next page) and sang, “I don’t give a shit,” at the end of her performance. They’ll be speculaton on whether or not that was planned mutually by all, though kind of doubtful given the negative career trajectory of the last performer who chose to go off script. Much more likely that as of now M.I.A. has been unfriended by Madonna to the outer stratospheres for deciding to freelance.

As for the performance itself, the sound was horrible for the first third and Madonna seemed stiff and not her usual confidenct self for a lot of the performance. And then, too, the game itself, featuring the Patriots versus the Giants was very exciting and close at halftime so even at its best the performance couldn’t compete and felt like a bit of an annoying disruption.

MIABadGirls 540x540 M.I.A. New Music Bad Girls

With a single called “Bad Girls,” produced by Danja, its M.I.A.’s first big marketing push since the days of the sweet potato truffled-flavored fries scandal. Above is the track as originally released in an M.I.A. mix tape called Vicki Leekx. To hear the current Danja-produced version click here.

In other news we’ll see a video for the single by director Romain Gavras this Friday, February 3rd. It’s all a lead up to the release of Ms. Arulpragasam’s fourth album, which we’ll see sometime in the summer months.

Rumors also are flying that M.I.A. may appear with Madonna during her Super Bowl halftime show to perform their collaborative single, “Give Me All Your Luvin.” It’s interesting to think about, but in reality the halftime shows seem to inevitably fall so flat partially because there’s this sense that no one is REALLY paying attention (which is because they’re not).

 Saints vs. Colts: What Team Are You, Ladies?

Whatever advantage the Colts may have with Mr. Confidence, aka Peyton Manning, the Saints have it all over them in the sentimental favorite column. After all, who wouldn’t rejoice to witness the down-but-not-out people of New Orleans experience the shot of pure joy that would come with a Super Bowl victory? And then there’s the added bonus of post-game, face time for boyishly adorable Reggie Smith. As such, Go Saints!
