Madonna Addresses ‘Girls Gone Wild’ Controversy

Bridgestone Super Bowl XLVI Halftime Show

Joe Francis, creator of the X-rated porno film Girls Gone Wild, claims he forced the hand of Madonna to drop the “s” and change the name of her song to “Girl Gone Wild” to avoid legal repercussions.

The only problem is Madonna claims she has NEVER even heard of Joe Francis and didn’t receive the cease and desist letter like the film producer claims.

Madge’s manager Guy Oseary told TMZ he finds it humorous that Francis is making these claims because Madonna’s team never received a letter from him or his company.

Francis insists that he made Madonna take the song out of her Super Bowl Halftime Show, but Oseary denies that notion to the fullest extent.

Oseary points to a Billboard story as evidence in which they claim 50 records are called “Girls Gone Wild,” proving that Joe Francis does not own the title “Girls Gone Wild.”

According to the manager, Madonna has been making changes to the album and decided to drop the “s” in “Girls” because that’s not how she sings it in the song.

The original Queen of Pop claims she has never heard of Francis and was unaware of any threats made by him.

 

The lyric video to “Girl Gone Wild” was released yesterday. What do you think of it?
