Madonna denies changing 'Girl Gone Wild' single name to avoid court

By
Madonna has dismissed reports that she was forced to change the name of her new single.

The singer debuted her new track 'Girl Gone Wild' yesterday (February 27), but the title has been slightly altered from the original tracklisting of 'Girls Gone Wild'.

Madonna: 'Girl Gone Wild'


Joe Francis - creator of the Girls Gone Wild soft porn series - recently claimed that he had sent Madonna a cease-and-desist letter ordering her not to perform the song at the Super Bowl and to change its name.

However, Madonna's manager Guy Oseary has since insisted that despite Francis claiming a victory over the absence of 'Girl Gone Wild' at the Super Bowl, no-one ever received the letter, reports TMZ.

Oseary also added that the decision to change the new single's title was because Madonna sings the world "girl" as singular and therefore it made more sense.

The manager continued to explain that "they have tweaked other titles on the album as well".

Oseary concluded: "Madonna doesn't even know who Joe Francis is... and claims she's completely unaware he's been making threats."

Madonna's 12th studio album MDNA will include 15 new tracks and be released worldwide on March 26.
