British rapper M.I.A is said to be blaming `nerves` and `adrenaline` for her controversial rude gesture during a performance at the Super Bowl yesterday.
The singer - best known for the hit song Paper Planes - flipped her middle finger and swore into the camera during her rap solo as over 100 million fans around the world watched the performance.
While all eyes were on Madonna for a scandalous moment, the broadcasters were caught by surprise by the 36-year-old and scrambled to obscure the gesture in time.
With one foot up on the podium, the 36-year-old rapped: `I don`t give a s***` and pulled the rude gesture during a live performance of Madonna`s new song, Give Me All Your Luvin, alongside the pop queen and fellow rapper Nicki Minaj.
The screen briefly went blurred in what seemed like a late attempt to cut out the camera shot and Madonna, who at this point was lying on her back behind the rapper, appeared blissfully unaware of the controversial move.
The NFL, which produces the show, and the broadcaster, NBC, both apologised immediately but blamed each other for the incident.
