Madonna’s Perfume Ad Too Racy for TV

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, ABC, Gossip, News, Video,

Madonna's perfume line, Truth or DareMadonna's perfume commercial is too racy for TV. The "Girls Gone Wild" singer's new 30-second black-and-white ad for her Truth or Dare scent have been deemed inappropriate for Disney-owned channel ABC with bosses ordering that shots of her breasts and butt be digitally altered to cover them up.

"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," a source the New York Post's Page Six.

However, even once the changes have been made, channel bosses have ruled the ad (seen after the jump) can only run after the 9pm watershed, with the exception of daytime show The View.

"ABC has requested some changes be made to the content of the Truth or Dare perfume commercial," another source said.

Quote of the Day: Madonna on Tonight’s Episode of Glee

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Comedy, Music, Prime Time, FOX,

Glee on cover of TV Guide

“I thought the Madonna episode of was brilliant on every level. The dialogue and the entire script was genius. I completely appreciated the layers of irony, especially when all those macho boys sang ‘What It Feels Like For A Girl.’ I also loved the fantastic performances of ‘Vogue,’ ‘Express Yourself’ and all the messages about the boys being respectful to girls. The entire cast was amazing. They’re all so talented. I especially loved Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) and Kurt Hummel’s (Chris Colfer) characters. [Show creator] Ryan Murphy did a great job bringing all these elements together. [Daughter] Lola loved the show too. I wish I went to a high school like that…If only.”
