Madonna’s Fragrance Ad Too Racy for TV Censors


In true Madonna fashion, she’s been deemed too steamy for TV screens once more. This time it’s not for a music video like ‘Justify My Love,’ but rather her fragrance ad for ‘Truth or Dare.’

The New York Post reports that ABC Networks, which are owned by the famously family-friendly Disney Corporation, won’t run the ad unless it’s edited to show less skin and exude a little less sex.

A source told the newspaper, “ABC viewed the ad [and] came back with a list of changes. They say they want her bra digitally made bigger, and to extend higher to cover more of her chest, and her corset longer to cover more of her bottom. ABC also wants to cut another suggestive scene where Madonna writhes around.” Are they aware that cutting the writhing scenes will make the ad roughly five seconds long? Just saying!

Even if the commercial is edited to ABC’s standards, however, the network is still being finicky about when they’ll air the ad, only offering to run it after 9PM and during ‘The View.’ Sounds like a bit much to us, no?

This is the second time in less than a month that a black-and-white Madge clip has been restricted to older viewers. YouTube restricted her ‘Girl Gone Wild‘ video to 18 and over members because it was too raunchy — and it was much racier than her ad was!

Do you think Madonna’s ad was too hot for TV? Sound off in the comments!
