M.I.A. to Perform with Madonna at Super Bowl Halftime Show
Chalk up another leading female songstress to the estrogen-fueled Super Bowl halftime show.
Pop music’s original diva, Madonna, was announced back in October as Super Bowl XLVI’s main performance. Now, numerous additions have leaked, including Nicki Minaj, LMFAO and now, M.I.A. During an interview with Radio 1 in Britain today, M.I.A. revealed her scheduled appearance during the performance.
Born Mathangi “Maya” Arulpragasam, M.I.A. burst onto the scene in the early 2000s with her swanky blend of hip-hop, electronic and world music. More recently, the songwriter co-produced Madonna’s latest single, “Give Me All Your Luvin,” alongside Nicki Minaj. Naturally, the pop trio are expected to perform the single during the halftime show.
Past Super Bowl halftime performers include Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, the Rolling Stones, Prince and Bon Jovi. This year’s performance, coupled with last year’s debacle involving the Black Eyed Peas, marks a return to modern music artistry after a long series of classic rock throwbacks controlled the spotlight.
One way or the other, our chances of seeing some boobs are higher than they’ve been since 2004, when Janet Jackson breasted the breast of them.
Super Bowl XLVI airs on Sunday, February 5, live from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.
