Madonna - Madonna Defends New Video After Youtube Restriction

Madonna has brushed off the controversy surrounding the raunchy video for her latest single Girl Gone Wild after YouTube.com bosses slapped it with a viewing age restriction, insisting: "How could you go wild and not grind?"
The pop superstar's new promo includes nudity and a man rubbing his crotch, and chiefs at the video sharing site restricted the clip, only making it available for those aged 18 or above.
A representative for YouTube told the New York Post, "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."
Madonna's management have reportedly been asked to recut the video so YouTube can screen the video for all of its users, and the singer's publicist, Liz Rosenberg, insists it's nothing they haven't dealt with before.
She says, "Some things never change. This is a throwback to when Mtv refused to show Justify My Love (in 1990)."
Now Madonna herself has addressed the controversy in a new interview with U.S. talk show host Jimmy Fallon.
In the chat, which aired live on Facebook.com on Saturday night (24Mar12), she says, "I'm supposed to be a girl gone wild in the video! How could you go wild and not grind? This is the question that people should be asking."
