Madonna: I Didn’t Change ‘Girls Gone Wild’ ‘Cause of Joe Whatshisname

20 Comments

Madonna did not change the name of “Girls Gone Wild” because of threats from “Girls Gone Wild” creator Joe Francis — this according to her manager, Guy Oseary.

Oseary tells TMZ … he found it laughable that Francis claimed victory after allegedly sending Madonna a cease and desist letter, ordering her not to perform her single “Girls Gone Wild” at the Super Bowl. In fact, Oseary says no one from team Madonna ever received the letter.

As for Madonna changing the name of the song to “Girl Gone Wild,” Oseary says they’ve been tweaking the album for weeks, and decided to make the word “Girl” singular because that’s the way Madonna sings it in the song.

Oseary says they have tweaked other titles on the album as well.

And Oseary scoffs at Francis’ claim that he owns the title, “Girls Gone Wild,” citing a Billboard story that claims there are 50 records called “Girls Gone Wild,” including songs by Ludacris, Jagged Edge, T Mills, Lee Kernaghan, Lil Rick and Jackie Kashian.

And finally, Oseary says Madonna doesn’t even know who Joe Francis is … and claims she’s completely unaware he’s been making threats.

Madonna Changes Name of New Song Due to Joe Francis Lawsuit

9 Comments

Joe Francis preached about his “Girls Gone Wild” trademark, and apparently Madonna listened.

The Material Girl released her thumping new dance track “Girl Gone Wild” Monday, and Francis is taking credit for its slightly modified name after sending a sharply-worded cease and desist letter before the iconic singer’s Super Bowl performance.

The song was listed as “Girls Gone Wild” – plural form – when iTunes started taking pre-orders for the superstar’s upcoming MDNA album several weeks ago.

“We won a battle but we didn’t win the war,” Joe Francis told the Daily News on Monday, adding that he also owns the “Girl Gone Wild” trademark. “I actually really like the song, which doesn’t mean anything. It’s business. We’ve been very fair with licenses. And we’ve been talking (with Madonna’s people), and I think we’re going to get somewhere that will be mutually satisfactory.”

David R. Houston, the lawyer for Francis, said negotiations between the two parties have been ongoing.

Madonna’s spokeswoman was not immediately available for comment.

“This is not personal at all,” Francis said. “I’m flattered, quite frankly, that a brand I’ve developed and created has achieved this level of notoriety.”

“Madonna’s track record as a world class entertainer and touring artist speaks for itself.

Madonna fever heats up Dubai

3 Comments

As part of her latest world tour US pop star Madonna is all set to entrall fans in Abu Dhabi this summer. And the Emirates is all ready beginning to feel the heat.

Tickets for her June 3 concert went on sale today (February 27) at Virgin Megastores outlets in Mall of Emirates and Dubai Mall and a decent crowd had already queued up early morning before the booths could open.

‘Emirates24|7’ saw a cross-section of fans – from mothers with kids in prams to teenage students and office-goers patiently waiting for their turn.

Considering this is a Monday morning, the crowd turnout has been substantial. While some over-enthusiastic fans were disheartened on not witnessing a stampede others heaved a sigh of relief at being able to peacefully purchase their tickets.

Fadi Ghanem, 27, said: “I got here at 10am anticipating long queues, but it’s not too bad.” He planned to buy Dh250-tickets for his seven friends and was not sure how many one person is allowed to purchase.

Flash Entertainment allowed eight tickets of the general admission category to be sold per person, prompting one Janet Ester to say: “That’s a bit much don’t you think? Surely four per person is good enough to allow others further up in the line to have a chance at the cheaper tickets?”

Swapnil Joshi, a college student, said: “I had class so I couldn’t get here any earlier than 11.30am, but I’m not complaining.”

“I called in sick from work today to get here,” said Mark P, refusing to give his full name, lest he gets caught by the boss, he said. “Just to make it clear, I’m just here to earn brownie points with my girlfriend. I couldn’t care less.”

Meanwhile, classic Madonna tracks such as ‘Like A Virgin’ and “Fever’ created the right mood at the outlets.
