Taking to the stage at half time during yesterday’s NFL Super Bowl in America, Madonna went for maximum visual impact in a series of show-stopping outfits including a black and gold Aztec outfit.

In total, Madonna wore three different costumes, created by Tisci and Givenchy especially for her 12-minute Super Bowl performance.

“People say everything has a limit, but limits do not exist with Madonna,” Tisci said.

Apart from a brief totter on her towering heels during a rendition of her hit Music with LMFAO, Madonna’s Super Bowl set without mishap.

Support act M.I.A however fared less well, landing herself in hot water for flicking her middle finger at the camera and singing, “I don’t give a sh*t.”

“We apologize for the inappropriate gesture that aired during half-time,” said spokesman Christopher McCloskey.

“It was a spontaneous gesture that our delay system caught late.”

M.I.A. – real name Mathangi Arulpragasam – is not new to controversy. Her Born Free video contained graphic shooting scenes and was given an 17+ age restriction rating on Youtube.

The star played her new track Bad Girls on Radio 1 last week.
