Madonna to Joe Francis

Relax ... I'm Not Singing

Your Stupid Song at Super Bowl

2/4/2012 5:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Francis is flattering himself by thinking Madonna will the GGW song
Joe Francis is flattering himself by thinking Madonna will sing her new song, "Girls Gone Wild," during the Super Bowl halftime show ... so says Madonna's rep.

As TMZ first reported, Francis had his lawyers fire off a letter to Madonna demanding she negotiate a licensing agreement for using his infamous trademark in her song ... and also insisting she NOT sing the new track during Sunday's performance.

But a rep for Madonna tells TheWrap the song is not part of her set list.

But the matter isn't settled ... because Joe's lawyer wants money from Madonna for putting the song in her album.

At least Joe can change the channel during halftime in peace.

Joe Francis is a stupid douche bag that really needs to just go the **** away or die, or better yet both! He created his entire fortune based on floozy ****teases and now thinks he is so f'n great!? He is nothing but a sad pathetic little prick that only made the GGW series cuz he couldn't get laid in high school or college, that is if the dumb mother f**ker EVER WENT TO COLLEGE! Big if!

I hate how ppl think they can own words ! An idiot in our town has trademarked "Welcome to Parry Sound" and our town has had to change its signes and no one can write it down without getting sued. Hope he doesn't try to trademark "girls gone wild" saying because he seems like a huge idiot who would.

Actually, this situation is gonna be very interesting, because he owns the phrase, but in the song tittle context, i don't think he has the copyrights ?! That situation has to be decided by a judge ...

Go ahead sue her, it's not like he'll get much. From what I have heard from it so for I can't see that album selling much. It's like it was written by some high school band at best. Sorry I like her but she's lost that something special.
