Madonna is still uncharacteristically silent over M.I.A. upstaging her performance during the Super Bowl halftime show but the Queen of Pop has announced dates for her 2012-13 world tour, which starts in Tel Aviv, Israel, on May 29, hits North America in August, and ends in Australia in early 2013.
As for M.I.A., there were reports she would personally have to pay any FCC fines for her middle finger, but The Hollywood Reporter says the agency is unlikely to act against NBC. CBS was fined $550,000 for Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction in 2004.
Andy Lewis, the tightrope guy who made many men uncomfortable by bouncing hard on his crotch during the show, tells TMZ "My nuts are fine," and that he's been doing it so long that "over time your nuts harden to steel."
TiVo reports the halftime show was more popular than the game itself and Doritos' "Man's Best Friend" spot was the top commercial. Movie ads fared poorly in TiVo's ranking, with Sacha Baron Cohen's The Dictator coming in at #24, followed by The Avengers (43), Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (48), G.I. Joe: Retaliation (53), Battleship (61), Act of Valor (66), Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax (68), John Carter (75), and Safe House (100).
In non Super Bowl-related news, fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld says Adele is "too fat," and Beyonce made her first post-baby appearance at a Jay-Z concert in a red Alice Temperly dress, four-inch Christian Louboutin heels, a gold Alexander McQueen clutch, and what look to be 5"-diameter hoop earrings.
