M.I.A. sacks the NFL

NEED TO KNOW
  • Rapper-singer M.I.A. takes her NFL fight public
  • The NFL is suing her for flashing her middle finger during the 2012 Super Bowl

In her battle with the NFL, rapper-singer M.I.A. is following a rule straight out of a football playbook: "the best defense is a good offense."

M.I.A. publicly revealed the NFL's secret $1.5 million lawsuit against her for flashing the middle finger during her Super Bowl halftime performance with Madonna last year (the matter's now in arbitration).

Now, M.I.A. has released a new YouTube video where she goes off on the NFL for going after her. "The NFL thing is completely ridiculous," she fumes, saying the lawsuit is "a massive waste of time, a massive waste of money... it's a massive display of just powerful corporation d*** shaking."

If the rules of football applied to lawsuits, there'd definitely be a flag on that one for unnecessary roughness! Today, our Showbiz Tonight panel takes sides on this NFL vs. M.I.A. "alphabet war " - and who they picked may surprise you! See who comes out on top tonight on Showbiz Tonight at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN.
