Who was MIA flipping off (NSFW...it's the finger)

85 posts in this topic

It's kinda funny that nobody cares about all the altruism and humanitarian work she does, we only care she held up one of her fingers.

joining the "I've never heard of her' club

I second that notion.

Maybe they should have Carrie Underwood do the next one. Great voice, young and easy on the eyes. She has the American Idol thing going for to bring in viewers. She is highly unlikely to give the crowd the finger. And it would be kind of cool for her to be able to say she made it to the Superbowl before Romo did. :)

Isn't Tina Turner locked in for next year?

It's more like nobody knows, because no one has ever herd of her. All most people know is that she chooses to make vulgar gestures on national TV, but yeah, it is really that no one "cares about all her altruism and humanitarian work ".

If she put as much effort into her music then maybe it would be good enough for everyone else to know who the hell she is and good enough for you to actually listen to it. ;)

I know you were just messing with him but I found it odd that so many people haven't heard of her. I am not a huge fan by any means but I know who she is and am familiar with some of her work. I tend to like a wide variety of music though so if you don't listen to Hip Hop type music or watch many movies I guess people wouldn't know her. Think she is kind of like soccer (futbol).....very popular around the world but not nearly as much in the US.

Looked up some stuff on her and she has a much more impressive resume than I thought:

Grammy nominated for record of the year, Best rap song

Academy Award nominated for Best original song and World soundtrack award

Esquire Magazine - Made top 75 most influential people of the 21st century

Rolling Stone - #52 on best album of the decade; Album of the year 2007

Time Magazine - 1 of only 2 recording artists on Most Influential people of the 21 st century.

Bender Magazine - Album of the year 2007

Spin Magazine - Artist of the year 2005

"Paper Planes" - 3 x's Platinum in the US and Canada

See that....if she didn't flip the bird during the Superbowl (America's Biggest Stage) I wouldn't have looked any of that up, there would be no thread about her, and everyone in this thread would have been more productive doing something more worthwhile. As stupid as her gesture was....it worked to some extent at least.

They know who she is, it's a form a hipsterism to pretend you don't. A lot of people will still say "Who is Justin Bieber?" even though everyone in the world has heard of him by now.

I'm as far from a hipster as one can possibly get. I've never heard of her. The first thing I think of when I hear "MIA" is fuging Chuck Norris killing a rat with his mouth.

i'd rather listen to somebody whose music is a little different and had something new and innovative to offer

but i do understand i'm not a middle aged white guy who would want to hear decades old rock music so that i can end up wishing i was younger by the time the game was over
