Los Angeles - Madonna has slammed M.I.A. for her "teenage" antics during their Super Bowl performance.The Music hitmaker admits she was disappointed in the British rapper - who caused controversy when she flipped her middle finger at the camera during her appearance for Gimme all your Luvin - because she didn't feel her antics were appropriate for the prestigious Super Bowl XLVI Half Time Show last weekend.Madonna told KIIS-FM DJ Ryan Seacrest: "I wasn't happy about it. I understand it's kind of punk rock and everything, but to me there was such a feeling of love and good energy and positivity, it seemed negative."It's one of those things, it's such a teenager...in a way, kind of irrelevant kind of thing to do. There was such a feeling of love and unity there, what was the point? It was just out of place."Really surprisedDespite her comments, Madonna admitted she didn't know about the incident until afterwards.She added: "To tell you the truth, I didn't even know about it. I didn't know about it until I left. I found out about it in the elevator, actually."I was really surprised. I didn't know anything about it."TV station NBC Sports have already issued an apology over M.I.A.'s actions.A spokesperson said: "We apologise for the inappropriate gesture that aired during halftime. It was a spontaneous gesture that our delay system caught late."
