Turkish photographer's Madonna video banned on YouTube
Hürriyet photoMadonna's latest video, directed by a team of fashion photographers including Turkish Mert Alas, was banned by YouTube for viewers under the age of 18 for being too "inappropriate," the New York Post reported.
YouTube sent a message to Madonna's team to tone down the video if they wanted it to be open for general viewing on YouTube, leading the video’s producers to conduct another round of editing on the “Girl Gone Wild” music video.
The video was directed by fashion photographer duo Marcus Piggott and Alas; the pair has been working together since the mid-1990s under the name “Mert and Marcus” and have shot the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, Björk and Victoria Beckham.
“Some things never change,” Madonna’s rep was quoted as saying to the New York Post. “This is a throwback to  when MTV refused to show ‘Justify My Love.’”
