NEW YORK (CBS/AP) British singer M.I.A. has nothing to say about the Super Bowl performance in which she flipped off 114 million people.

Her Twitter account has been silent since she made an obscene gesture during her spotlight moment at Madonna's Super Bowl halftime performance Sunday. Her record label says it has no comment.

NBC and the NFL has apologized, but Madonna and most of the Super Bowl performers on stage with her and M.I.A. have not commented. Cee Lo Green told MTV.com that he was so focused on his own performance that he missed the gesture and that there was no talk about it later in the dressing room.

Digital video recorder maker TiVo says there are no appreciable bumps in playback for that moment. Compare that to Janet Jackson's 2004 wardrobe malfunction, which at the time became the most reviewed event on TiVo.
