"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 ... sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ.

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." [TMZ]

PREVIOUSLY: NBC & NFL apologize for M.I.A,'s "inappropriate gesture" during the Superbowl

I hope she doesn't get sued. Not because I care about her, but because I don't want her typical fan girls to be all up in arms about how she's so rebellious and alt.

First of all she isn't the wife of a music exec she is the wife (or girlfriend as i don't think they ever got married) of a music exec's loser son who has taken daddys billions to play green energy pioneer w all of daddy's friends propping him up but hey, he gave his sister a job at the company. Second MIA is a complete hypocrate for trying to be confrontational at the most corporate, heavily sponsored event in the world...if you're so upset at the super bowl honey DON'T PLAY IT!!! That would be your best F you to the super bowl. Wow MIA is sooooo edgy. Hopefully this will help end her career that much quicker!

Regular Folks have never heard of her. And the current Hipsterati have abandoned her since she is so 2008. YAY!

Part of me thinks the (over)reaction led by the PTC is fucking ridiculous & asinine. All that over a middle finger?! Jesus!

The other part of me thinks M.I.A. is a cocky, overrated douchebagette so I'm glad she's going to have to pay those hefty fines out of her own pocket. Idiot. It was in your contract to behave yourself. God forbid she conform for the biggest exposure of her career.

you can't buy this kind of free press.

Madonna probably said, "good business decision!" after the show. Pop star personalities are businesses. Stop reporting on it.

Those idiotic tweets seem similar to the people who comment here: "I never never heard of this person so they must be irrelevant!"

Dear 10:08:
"douchebagette" is one of the most brilliant thing i've read in a long while. Thanks for the belly laughs.

Liz Phair should be forced to pay the fine, since she inspired all the edgy female pop singers.

HHHAhahahahaha I hope this loser has to pay up and then continues to fall in obscurity.

I don't think her husbands family will have any problem covering the cost of fines. Easy to be "rebellious" when you have a fat wallet backing up that A$$(hole)..

"Lookee here, I'm like this crazy revolutionary lady, and although I'm performing at the most mega-corporate event in history along side the most money-grubbing female singer of all time, I'm still like a badass 'cause I stuck up my middle finger. Right, guys?"

How much does she have to pay for //\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\Y/\\/\/

Whose twitters are those? Just random people? I'd bet a dollar they are all very aware who MIA is and are trying to be cool (by pretending not to know who she is?) I still enjoy 'galang' and I don't give a shit if MIA married a rich dude or did the coochie scoot during the halftime show, not like I have to hang out with her or anything.

This just in - I don't suffer brown M&Ms, but I'll eat that fine brown thing all night long. Yessir, all night long.

here's hoping the fine is fucking immense!

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2012 9:38 PM

Thanks 3:49. I never knew MIA stole the name from the real MIA. Makes me like her even less then I did, if that was even possible.

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2012 11:20 AM

Maybe she should go Missing In Action, amirite?

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2012 11:40 AM

349 the real MIA will never be found. ZING


really though, no one stole the name 'MIA' from anyone. it's like having your band name be 'POW' or 'KIA'

granted her name is maya arulpragasam or whatever so i guess she could be saying they are her initials.

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2012 11:52 AM
