'It's not her voice I find offensive,' says rapper following controversial half time show
The rapper – real name Stephen Manderson – posted a message on his Twitter account claiming that he was offended by the singer’s attire during the show, which also featured a controversial appearance from MIA.
Somebody please just ask Madonna to put some clothes on? She can sing when she’s 80, it’s not her voice I find offensive.
Not everyone found fault with the Queen of Pop’s performance, however, as both Cheryl Cole and Katy Perry praised the performance on Twitter, with the latter comparing the set to a “spiritual experience”.
Despite Green’s protestations, it was rapper MIA who created the most controversy from last night’s performance, forcing US television network NBC issue a full apology after she raised her middle finger during the half-time show.
The singer, who was performing with Madonna on her new single ‘Gimme All Your Luvin” alongside Nicki Minaj, held her middle finger up during a section of the track. You can see video footage of the incident by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.
MIA’s middle finger aside, Madonna’s half-time show went off without a hitch. She was joined onstage by LMFAO, who blended their hit singles ‘Party Rock Anthem’ and ‘Sexy And I Know It’ with her track ‘Music’, while Cee Lo Green also joined the singer to sing on ‘Open Your Heart’ and ‘Like A Prayer’.
Madonna also performed her hits ‘Vogue’ and ‘Express Yourself’ during the 12-minute performance. You can see the full set by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.
