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 bosses slapped it with a viewing age restriction, insisting: “How could you go wild and not grind?” The singer’s new video includes nudity and a man rubbing his crotch, and bosses 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 re-cut 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 talk show host Jimmy Fallon. In the chat, which aired live on Facebook on Saturday night, 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.”

FACEBOOK LETS YOU DEMOTE FRIENDS
Facebook has unveiled a new tool which lets you demote ‘friends’ to just being ‘acquaintances’. The tool actually suggests friends who might be good candidates based on people who you haven’t messaged or interacted with for a while. Once a friend has been ‘demoted’, you see fewer of their posts in your news feed – but they’ll never know of their new, lower status. The ‘acquaintances’ list has been around since last year – but the new tool makes it easier to demote friends, by suggesting them to you.
