Madonna: 'Girl Gone Wild' video banned in Youtube, responds in public
Pop goddess Madonna has publicly addressed the recent YouTube banning of her new music video for 'Girl Gone Wild'.
This new video, which premiered on March 20, features Madonna dancing amongst nude and semi-nude male models.
YouTube bosses deemed the content inappropriate, and placed an open view ban on the video, making it accesible only to those 18 years and older.
A YouTube representative stated: "While we don't comment on individual videos, we review all videos flagged by our users against our community guidelines. In some cases we restrict flagged material that, while not in violation of those guidelines, contains images that may be unsuitable for younger users."
The grand performer's publicist Liz Rosenberg described the ban as proving that "some things never change", and cited MTV's ban of the star's 'Justify My Love' video in 1990.
Madonna has finally come out to comment on the situation, reports WENN.
The 53-year-old singer said in a recent Facebook chat with Jimmy Fallon: "I'm supposed to be a girl gone wild in the video! How could you go wild and not grind? This is the question that people should be asking."
Madonna's team are currently working to edit out all shots of bare bottoms and a particular scene of simulated masturbation, to ensure a lift on the ban.
