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.

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.
