Getting your celebrity gossip from TMZ is soooooo 2009, dude. Each Thursday in "Twitter Litter," RFT Music rounds up the week's best meltdowns, ego battles and WTFness from rockers, rappers and DJs who aren't afraid of a little hashtag action. It's time to take out the trash.

Hey, remember when Madonna did that really disappointing Super Bowl halftime show, and then M.I.A. (@miauniverse) danced around with Madge and a million underage cheerleaders in tiny outfits, and then M.I.A. flipped off the camera for, like, .25 seconds, and then everybody was mad, and then everybody made out and was OK again because, you know, football? The NFL now is demanding that M.I.A. pony up $1.5 million for tarnishing its solid reputation with that flick of her finger. But M.I.A. is not having any of that crap!

In case you don't remember M.I.A.'s earth-shattering moment in NFL history, here you go:

We know that your world is crashing down now. Sorry.

Even when you're a big star, you still love Grams and Gramps. If Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) can hang with his elders, you can, too:

Continue for Drake on a skateboard and Ted Nugent eating deer.
