The opening acts at Friday's Wired Fest, a five-hour concert at the Susquehanna Bank Center Center in Camden, were meant to set the stage for headliner Nicki Minaj. But the show, sponsored by Wired 96.5 (WRDW 96.5-FM,) was neither a cohesive selection of like-minded artists nor a purposefully eclectic conclave like the Roots Picnic, but an accidental hodgepodge of seven performers, including B.o.B., T-Pain, and Diggy Simmons, taken from the station's playlists. Ironically, it turned out to be a fitting introduction for Minaj, whose attempts to conquer every corner of the pop universe simultaneously has stretched her prodigious talents to the breaking point.

Eight years after Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction, some unexpected controversy returned to the Super Bowl halftime show. M.I.A., appearing on stage with Madonna and Nicki Minaj to perform "Give Me All Your Luvin'," flipped the middle finger to a camera before a cutaway. The song contains an inappropriate word, which she did not say, using the middle finger in place of the word. NBC went to a wide view of the stage, but it was too late as M.I.A.'s middle finger gesture could be seen.

EIGHT YEARS after Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction, some unexpected controversy returned to the Super Bowl halftime show. M.I.A., appearing with Madonna and Nicki Minaj to perform "Give Me All Your Luvin'," flipped the middle finger to a camera before a cutaway. The song contains an inappropriate word, which she did not appear to say, although it was difficult to hear her clearly. NBC went to a blurred wide view of the stage in an effort to cut out the shot, but it was too late as M.I.A.'s middle-finger gesture could be seen.

YESTERDAY, thanks to quotes in Rolling Stone , we learned that Drake was peeved at Macklemore . Today we learn that he's also mad at Rolling Stone . Darn you, Philip Seymour Hoffman , for dying the week Drake was supposed to get the cover. Now Drake is saying he will no longer do magazine interviews. Guess he finally figured out newspapers are cooler. "I just want to give my music to the people," Drake tweeted yesterday, using "give" as a synonym for "sell.

* AMERICAN IDOL. 8 tonight and tomorrow, Fox 29.   PASADENA, CALIF. - One fewer judge, way less drama. Or so it seemed as the new three-judge panel for this season's "American Idol" met with reporters Monday at the Television Critics Association's winter meetings. The same session a year ago turned out to be largely about parsing the relationship - or nonrelationship - between then-judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj. This year, Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and newbie judge Harry Connick Jr. got to talk about all kinds of things.

Finding the perfect wig for your Halloween costume can be the difference between a trick or a treat. Especially this year when our celebrities du jour - many of whom do scary things all year long - are so creative when it comes to coifs. Think Nicki Minaj's ombré, white-to-pink tresses; singer Miguel's dark pompadour; and the signature Afro of Philly's own Questlove Thompson that isn't complete without a perfect power-to-the-people pick. "The wig makes the character," said Lois Arnold, owner of Lois A. Wigs on South Fourth Street.

Samuel L. Jackson is tired of world leaders who try to sound like Joe Sixpack , including President Obama , who has a tendency to drop his g 's. "I say stop trying to 'relate.' Be a leader. Be [expletive] presidential," Jackson, 64, tells Playboy. "I grew up in a society where I could say, 'It ain't.' . . . But when I'm out presenting myself to the world . . . I [expletive] conjugate. " Jackson   , who played a slave in Quentin Tarantino 's Django Unchained , also is fed up with folks who say only black directors should tell black stories.

I'M SURPRISED that everyone is speaking about Miley Cyrus' performance and is embarrassed by her behavior. Are you familiar with Robin Thicke's song "Blurred Lines" - an edited version because the original version was too risqué to air? Haven't we seen Nicki Minaj perform lap dances on stage? Haven't we seen Ciara twerk on stage? Haven't we seen Lil Wayne performing wearing his underwear on stage? Didn't we recently view Rihanna performing to the song "Cake," slapping her private parts?

Pet Shop Boys Electric (x2 ***1/2) With the aid of producer Stuart Price - former helpmate to Madonna and the Killers - the Pet Shop Boys get back on the dance floor with an aptly named, heartening return to form. Electronic dance music would seem to be a young button-pushing programmer's game. But what's stopping a pair of drolly intellectual Brits who date to the '80s from upping the beats-per-minute and getting a thought- provoking party started? On Electric , nothing.

With viewers abandoning American Idol in flash mobs, the future of the former ratings juggernaut is wrapped in turmoil and scotch-taped in uncertainty. So it was tempting to watch Idol 's finale the way Kremlinologists once pored over pictures of the Politburo, trying to deduce who was in and who was out. Randy Jackson, the only original judge left on the show, was honored for 12 loud years of service with a video valediction. Unfortunately, it was framed in a Dogs Playing Poker package, with subtitled barks.

Everybody wants to date Kate. Well, maybe not everybody, but a lot of guys working on Katie Holmes ' new flick Mania Days apparently have warm feelings for the fair Kate, the New York Post reports. A source tells the Post that Katie, 34, has received seven offers to step out: "They were crew members and extras just chancing it. It really got on the nerves of director Paul Dalio . Needless to say, she said no to everyone," the source said. Holmes has been unattached since sundering last year from Tom Cruise . The only mushy stuff for Kate has been strictly business, with costar Luke Kirby . They play manic depressives who fall in love in a psychiatric hospital.

LET'S FACE FACTS, the judges on "American Idol" do less actual judging than the "judges" at Philadelphia Traffic Court. Their purpose is to cheerlead and create drama and give viewers some name recognition to latch on to while they learn the names of the new batch of karaoke singers. Judging chemistry is hard to duplicate, and "American Idol" has been floundering around since the original trio of Simon Cowell , Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson , mixing in Kara DioGuardi , Ellen DeGeneres , Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler before adding this year's newbies.
