Yesterday, Madonna unleashed the lyric video for “Girl Gone Wild,” the latest single from her forthcoming MDNA.
And there is a boy, apparently, who is not so wild about it: Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis says he threatened legal action if the single was released with its original plural title.
He appears to have been satisfied, though it’s unclear how thoroughly. In a statement, Francis said that the shift from “Girls” to “Girl” was “an immediate solution for [Madonna's label Interscope] to thwart any injunctive relief.”
“Clearly her label was trying to avoid legal action surrounding the song,” he continues. “But this is still infringement as far as the law is concerned and we have been in touch with Madonna’s representatives in an effort to resolve this issue.”
