M.I.A. speaks on NFL’s $1.5 Million Fine

When she flipped off everyone watching the Super Bowl half time show last year M.I.A. probably didn’t think the NFL would fine her $1.5 million. I’m sure everyone has seen the footage and if you haven’t you can check it out here. Now I’m sure she just got in the heat of the moment and for whatever reason she did what shes did. Though you’d have to figure the NFL wouldn’t be happy about the situation and would fine her in some way. But who would of thought it would be that much money, if I was her I wouldn’t want to pay it either. Rocking an Oakland Raiders crew neck she flips the bird to the NFL all over again challenging them as to what’s worse her flipping the bird or them sexually exploiting Madonnas  back up dancers. As she states, “basically, so they can say it’s OK for me to promote being sexually exploited as a female than to display female empowerment through being punk rock. That is what it boils down to, and I’m being sued for it.”
