Madonna Video Too Wild For YouTube?

Queen of Pop's latest video reportedly deemed too raunchy for YouTube...

Madonna is certainly no stranger to controversy and it seems she has no intention of toning things down at the age of 53.

The video for her latest single Girl Gone Wild, taken from new album MDNA, is reportedly too raunchy for young YouTube viewers.

Shot in black and white, the video sees the hotpant-clad Queen of Pop gyrating suggestively against a wall, being embraced by several semi-nude male models and dancing whilst in chains.

According to The New York Post, YouTube execs have slapped an age restriction on the footage, preventing under-18s to watch the video.

A YouTube rep told the paper: "While we don't comment on individual videos, we review all videos flagged by our users against our community guidelines." 

The Google-owned site's rules stipulate that videos can be restricted should they contain "nudity and dramatised or implied sexual conduct".

It is thought Madge's team are planning to edit the video and remove the offending scenes in order to obtain unrestricted viewing.

Within hours of its online release, the video had become a trending topic on Twitter.
