Britney & Rihanna Too Hot For TV?
Rihanna's racy performance with Britney Spears at last weekend's Billboard Music Awards didn't sit so well with the Parent's Television Council. On top of the bondage-themed outfits, there was a kiss between the two singers that was edited out of the performance, but nonetheless managed to ruffle the feathers of the watchdog group.
“What happened in Vegas should have stayed in Vegas, as the saying goes. It certainly has no place at 8:00 p.m. on the publicly-owned broadcast airwaves," Parent’s Television Council president Tim Winter said via statement.
“I cannot imagine what would possibly lead the ABC television network to air a profanity-laced, S&M sex show on primetime broadcast television," Winters added. "The overtly sexualized performance by Rihanna and Britney Spears was no accident or mishap, but a deliberate effort to target teens with images and lyrics that glamorize whips, chains and other sexual fantasies.”
