Rihanna shows no signs of toning down any time soon but TV bosses arenât hearing it. The UK Daily Mirror has learned that the video for her new single âS&Mâ is so steamy, itâs already been banned in 11 countries and counting.
Southern Asian countries immediately banned it, MTV is considering a re-edit, and BBC Radio 1 has vetoed playing it until after 7pm.
As Singersroom recently reported, the ban started with Youtube, who considered the video “inappropriate” for viewers under the age of 18; placing a restriction on the clip with the warning message: “This content may contain material flagged by YouTube’s user community that may be inappropriate for some users.”
RiRi is no stranger to ruffling feathers with her racy visuals; her girl-on-girl action in âTe Amoâ previously led to a ban.
