Madonna's steamy 'Girl Gone Wild' video restricted by You Tube

New York, Mar 24 (ANI): Madonna's 'Girl Gone Wild' video, from her new album ' MDNA ', has been restricted from open view on YouTube for being too raunchy.

The site's chiefs have reportedly told the superstar's management that if they want it to be available for viewing by all, they must edit out shots of bare bottoms, a man rubbing his crotch and an implied masturbation scene where a man gyrates before a mirror.

Her team was working on Friday on an edited version of the video for YouTube because, for the first time, it's based its marketing strategy for her new album on social media, including a live Facebook interview with Jimmy Fallon.

"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," the New York Post quoted a source as saying.

Fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott directed ' Girl Gone Wild', using much of the singer's trademark erotic imagery, including topless men dancing in black tights and platform heels.

YouTube also took exception to an S and M-inspired scene of a silhouette in chains.

The video was deemed "inappropriate for some users", and viewers must verify they're 18 or older and log in to watch it.

"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," a YouTube representative said.

Madonna's rep, Liz Rosenberg, said, "Some things never change. This is a throwback to [1990] when MTV refused to show 'Justify My Love'." (ANI)
