When you’re short of a few quid, there’s no harm in turning to a cash-rich pal for a hand out, but asking Madonna for a $16 million loan is taking it a bit far.
Rapper M.I.A (real name Mathangi Arulpragasam) has taken to Twitter to ask Madge for a loan of $16 million after the NFL demanded she pay that amount in compensation for flipping the bird during the 2012 Super Bowl half-time show.
M.I.A. has claimed that her performance pales in comparison to Michael Jackson’s 1993 Super Bowl show when he, “repeatedly grabbed or fondled his genitalia especially while he sang Billie Jean.”
None-the-less, English-Sri Lankan rapper’s impromptu gesture during her performance of Give Me All Your Luvin’ alongside Madonna, has gotten her into a lot of hot water and she’s turned to her buddy for a dig out.
The Born Free rapper tweeted, “@madonna ummm ….. can I borrow 16 million ?”
We assume M.I.A is joking but you never know, the Material Girl might be feeling generous.
