Ironically enough, while in the midst of a fight with Joe Francis, Madonna stripped down for the cover of her new single, Girl Gone Wild, which Francis believes violated infringement laws.

Released on Tuesday, 53-year-old Madonna is seen in the cover on a cleavage and décolletage-baring lacy bra with triangular straps, leaving nearly nothing to the imagination. The bra is paired with a bare midriff, exposing the singer's toned stomach to complement the lyrics: Girls Just want to have fun: and Good girl's don't misbehave, but she's a bad girl anyway.

The single cover is for Madonna's upcoming album, MDNA.

Meanwhile, Francis, the creator of X-rated videos Girls Gone Wild served Madonna with a cease and desist earlier this month requesting that Madge does not sing the song at the Super Bowl.

However, Madonna's lawyer, Guy Oseary, told TMZ that Madonna did not change the name of the song, dropping the 's,' because of the cease and desist but rather because that's the way Madonna sings it in the song. According to Oseary, other songs in the album have been changed as well as the album is being updated.

Francis said in a statement that the shift from 'Girls' to 'Girl' was a partial solution, but legal action is still being pursued, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Clearly her label was trying to avoid legal action surrounding the song, he continued in the statement. But this is still infringement as far as the law is concerned and we have been in touch with Madonna's representatives in an effort to resolve this issue.

The Girls Gone Wild creator also added that the fan base for his franchise may not be so different from the pop superstar's followers.

We are Madonna fans and there are a lot of Madonna fans that are 'Girls Gone Wild' fans, he said according to E! Online.
