M.I.A. To Pay Up If FCC Fines NBC, NFL Over Super Bowl Incident

    Does M.I.A.’s flipping-the-bird-during-the-half-time-show-incident have a cool name like Nipplegate yet? Fingergate, maybe? Gross. Anyway, TMZ reports that if NBC or the NFL is fined over her decision to give the finger to everyone in the world than she will have to pay for it. Apparently her performance contract reads that she agreed to indemnify the NFL, which indemnifed NBC, for any FCC fines it would have to pay because of what she did. It’s not quite clear how much these fines would be, but chances are Maya’s got more than enough money to cover whatever comes her way. I can’t imagine the attention she’s getting now from people who had never heard of her.
