Madonna Renames Song "GIRL Gone Wild"; Joe Francis Claims Legal Victory

by at . Comments

Madonna renamed her song "Girls Gone Wild" to "Girl Gone Wild" (singular) after a legal threat from underage-drunk-spring-break-girl-sleaze kingpin Joe Francis.

Which she says didn't impact her decision, at all.

Still, the Girls Gone Wild mogul warned the star with a cease and desist letter not to sing her single of the same name at the halftime show. She didn't.

Then, the singer released the song off her upcoming MDNA album ... with the "s" not only removed from the title and lyrics, but the lyrics as well. Listen:

Francis tells E! that his legal team worked with Madonna's people on it, and that changing "Girls Gone Wild" to "Girl Gone Wild" was just the start.

"An immediate solution for them to thwart any injunctive relief," he said. "Clearly her label was trying to avoid legal action surrounding the song."

"This is still infringement as far as the law is concerned. We have been in touch with Madonna's representatives in an effort to resolve this issue."

According to Madonna's manager, that's total B.S.

Guy Oseary tells TMZ that it's laughable Francis claimed victory after allegedly sending Madonna a cease and desist letter, which Madge never got.

As for Madonna changing the name of the song, Oseary says they decided to make "Girl" singular since that's the way Madonna sings it in the song.

Oseary says they tweaked other titles on the album as well, and scoffs at Joe Francis' claim that he even owns the trademark to "Girls Gone Wild."

He cited a Billboard story that claims there are 50 records called "Girls Gone Wild," including songs by Ludacris, Jagged Edge, T Mills, etc., etc.

Finally, Oseary says Madonna doesn't even know who Joe Francis is, let alone that he's threatening her regarding her new album. So there.

Anyone that knows anything about copyrights knows that you can't copyright a title of a song. It's total balony.

G.I.R.L.S. acronym to - Gerent Iniquity of Rotarian Linguistic's of the Syndicate's............ and G.I.R.L, acronym to - Gerent Iniquity of Rotarian Linguistic's. Either way it's the bush Illuminati's baby. there she goes trusting the government too much. maybe she knows the sorcer of the dacnomaniatic demogorgon's promoting the psychic terrorism that is plaguing the world. I think she's just playing to pretend that she is anti government by taking the "S" out and just making it G.I.R.L cause the "S" stands for Syndicate and it still is all ultra secret government ran so what's the diff?. she just might be attempting to nullify her comrads whom are ultra secret government psychic visual communication's linguistic engineer's and psychic synoptic administration's and oversight's of it.???????????. why else would she do this and advertise it?. it's a smear?.

Leave her alone. She’s gonna be 16 soon and then 17 and then 18, and then she might show her knees and then what's gonna happen?

My husband and I are not planning on getting a divorce. I know Alex Rodriguez through Guy Oseary, who manages both of us. I brought my kids to a Yankee game. I am not romantically involved in any way with Alex Rodriguez. I have nothing to do with the state of his marriage or what spiritual path he may choose to study.
