Madonna doesn’t know who Joe Francis is!

Madonna released another song from MDNA yesterday to the delight of gay men everywhere (except for me, who was just sort of … I dunno, nyeh, ust nyeh). The song was originally called Girls Gone Wild, but was later shortened to just Girl Gone Wild, which a lot of people thought had something to do with Joe Francis threatening to sue her. Turns out, Madonna wasn’t even aware that the asshole existed, and for once, I’m actually jealous of Madonna. TMZ reports:

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.

No, seriously Madonna, how do you do it? What kind of sorcery and witchcraft have you performed that keeps you blissfully unaware of that fact that Joe is even alive? Seriously, if I could go through the rest of my life without ever knowing that Joe existed — or if someone implanted the idea in my mind that he left earth forever to go film alien boobs — I think I could die happy.
