It stole headlines from Her Madgesty in the days after the record-breaking Super Bowl performance, so what does Madonna have to say about M.I.A.'s "punk rock" Super Bowl salute?
Speaking with Ryan Seacrest on Friday morning, Madge said:
"To tell you the truth, I didn't even know about it. I didn't know about it until I left. When I left I found out about it in the elvator. I was really surprised, I didn't know anything about it.

"It's one of those things. It's such a teenager, in a way, irrelevant thing to do in one respect, but on the other hand there was such a feeling of love and unity there, what was the point? It was just out of place."
