Madonna is reportedly angry with MIA over the controversy she caused by raising her middle finger at Sunday's Super Bowl performance.

The 'Paper Planes' hitmaker joined Nicki Minaj for a rendition of Madge's new single 'Give Me All Your Luvin'' at the Half Time show in Indianapolis, and gave the gesture just before cameras cut away from her.

The Sun reports that Madonna was irritated by the move, which forced NBC to issue an apology.

"Madonna wasn't impressed," a source told the paper. "She prides herself on professionalism. MIA did nothing similar in rehearsals.

"Nobody knew she was going to pull this stunt. Madonna wanted to put on a world-beating performance. But everyone ended up talking about this girl's middle finger."

The network had said in a statement: "Our system was late to obscure the inappropriate gesture and we apologise to our viewers."

Do you think it's a storm in a tea-cup? Or does MIA deserve to feel the consequences?
