MADONNA’s raunchy new music video for her new single “Girl Gone Wild” has been banned from public view on YouTube for its nude and offensive scenes.
But sex sells, right?
Unfortunately for her fans under 18, Madonna‘s newest ”Girl Gone Wild” music video—directed by the same fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot from her fragrance ad and J.Lo‘s red hot cover for Vogue—has been her fragrance adbanned for public view on YouTube for its scenes with topless men in tights, nudity (bare bottoms anyone?), sadomasochism, crotch-rubbing and implied masturbation.
Fortunately for some, the “MDNA” team will be editing the raunchy video for a YouTube-friendly version to comply with the album’s new marketing strategy, which is to base her new music on social media.
A source tells the New York Post:
“YouTube has decided the video is too raunchy and should only be viewed by those 18 or over, and actually, the video is hard to find on the site. YouTube has sent Madonna’s team a list of shots that should be cut to make it appropriate for everyone.”
A YouTube rep also claimed:
“While we don’t comment on individual videos, we review all videos flagged by our users against our community guidelines. In some cases we age restrict flagged material that, while not in violation of those guidelines, contains images that may be unsuitable for younger users.”
But the video wasn’t Madonna’s first censored reel that had the singer’s trademark erotic imagery. According to Madonna’s rep, Liz Rosenberg:
“Some things never change. This is a throwback to  when MTV refused to show ‘Justify My Love.’ ”
Was it really that offensive? You be the judge:
