Trending: Another body part, another scandal at the Super Bowl

It's happened again. Much of America has got their knickers in a twist over the half-time performance at the Super Bowl, that hallowed 12-minute slot that introduced us to the term "wardrobe malfunction" back in 2004, after Janet Jackson's right nipple made a surprise cameo. And after tame contributions from the likes of Tom Petty and The Rolling Stones in recent years, on Sunday "controversy" returned to America's biggest sporting event when MIA, the English-born singer and rapper, "flipped the bird" at the camera during her guest spot in Madonna's medley.

Streamlined Grammys to embrace age of austerity

In a rare outbreak of trophy deflation, the American Recording Academy has revealed that starting in 2012 it will be giving away a mere 78 Grammy awards to the world's most successful and talented musical artists and bands, down sharply from the evidently extravagant 108 that it has become accustomed to distributing over recent years. Presumed benefits of this sudden shedding of gong-weight include a cut in manufacturing costs – those model gramophones don't grow on trees – and an easier job for producers trying to deliver an evening awards show that doesn't last beyond breakfast. But perhaps more importantly those still winning a Grammy can be just a little bit prouder.
