She says she's being scapegoated...
M.I.A. has posted a new video discussing the NFL's attempt to make her pay $1.5 million for breach of contract over the 2012 Super Bowl performance that she participated in with Madonna and Nicki Minaj. As you may recall, the singer sparked controversy at the show when she flipped off the camera and the NFL is alleging the breach of contract for that.
But now, M.I.A. posted the following video online in which she says the NFL is "scapegoating me into trying to set the goalpost for what is offensive in America." She notes that the picture in which she is seen giving the middle finger also has a group of sixteen year-old girls who were selected from a high school in Indianapolis who are in cheerleader outfits with their "hips thrusted in the air, legs wide open, in this very sexual...sexually provocative position."
She asks, "Is the middle finger offensive, or is a sixteen year-old black girl with her legs wide open more offensive?" and further calls it "a massive display of powerful corporation dick shaking."
