In other “Why is this news?” news: M.I.A. might owe the FCC some $$$

Font Size:

I don’t really care about some singer or rapper or whatever she’s supposed to be flipping off the camera during Madonna’s Super Bowl halftime show. That’s what you get for watching Madonna’s Super Bowl halftime show. All M.I.A. did was sum up everything that was wrong with it, and with all of us, in one quick gesture.

Still, I’m a big fan of silly, tedious leftists being held accountable for their actions, so I’m enjoying this news from TMZ:

M.I.A. will end up paying any fines imposed on NBC as a result of her finger wag during the Super Bowl halftime show…

Our sources say… the NFL has indemnified NBC… because the NFL is responsible for the halftime content.

But the NFL was smart, given the history of performers who wanted to do something shocking to get attention during the biggest TV event of the year. So we’re told… M.I.A. signed a contract with the NFL for the halftime performance, and in that contract M.I.A. agreed to indemnify the NFL for any money it might be forced to pay if the FCC comes down on the Peacock Network.

But hey, it’s all worth it to prove she’s not boring anymore, right? Hello?
