Madonna Won't Show Baby on MTV
Feb. 26, 1998
NEW YORK (AP) _ Madonna had a change of heart about putting her baby daughter on television. At her request, MTV has snipped 53 seconds of footage from a program that airs this weekend.
Madonna, who also posed with baby Lourdes for a photo spread in Vanity Fair magazine, asked the network to cut footage showing her daughter bouncing happily to the ``Macarena'' from a show promoting the singer's new album.
She made a ``spur of the moment'' decision allowing the photos to be made but now considers it a mistake to make pictures of her daughter public, MTV newsman Kurt Loder said Wednesday.
Madonna had second thoughts when she was in Paris this week and was confronted by thousands of fans shouting for her and her 16-month-old daughter, Loder said.
``I think she was really, really shaken,'' he said.
Madonna and her spokeswoman, Liz Rosenberg, are in Europe this week and did not return a call.
