M.I.A.’s One Finger Salute Might Cost Her

M.I.A.’s little middle finger stunt might cost the rapper a pretty penny. According to TMZ, in the light of past media whoring events, the NFL requires performers to sign a contract that indemnify the league for any money it might be forced to pay if the FCC fines the network. Now according to reports, M.I.A. did indeed sign a contract before performing in this weekend’s Super Bowl halftime show.

The contract is an all around smart move for NBC and the NFL, who undoubtedly learned a lesson from CBS who received a massive $550,000 FCC fine after Janet Jackson’s infamous wardrobe malfunction.
