M.I.A Confirms Super Bowl Halftime Performance

In an interview with Radio 1, M.I.A. revealed she’ll be appearing at the Super Bowl this Sunday.

“I’m at the Super Bowl rehearsals. I’m going to be performing with Madonna and Nicki Minaj. If you’re going to go to the Super Bowl, you might as well go there with America’s biggest female icon,” she told the station.

Having recently worked on Madonna’s new single “Give Me All Your Luvin” with Nicki Minaj, the trio will take to a live performance this weekend.

M.I.A. continued, “It’s come at a really cool time because it’s Madonna, especially if she’s doing the Super Bowl and she’s saying, ‘I am the original American sweetheart and pop icon. I invented this.’ The whole music industry is based on what she invented years ago.”

Whether or not we agree with the leading lady, we do know the Super Bowl has produced some iconic performances in its day from Prince, The Rolling Stones and U2.

With new single “Bad Girls” released Monday, it appears the rapper is one busy lady.

You can watch M.I.A. perform this Sunday, Feb. 5 when the New York Giants play the New England Patriots in the 2012 Super Bowl.
