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.
