The sex in the air from Rihanna’s “S&M” was apparently too much for several areas of the globe—at least according the UK paper the Daily Mirror, which is reporting that the song’s music video has been banned in 11 different countries. “Southern Asian countries immediately banned it, MTV is considering a re-edit, and BBC Radio 1 has vetoed playing it until after 7pm,” says the paper. Here in the States, YouTube is now warning viewers that the “S&M” video “may contain content that is inappropriate for some viewers” before asking if you wish to continue watching. The single, however, has shot up to #30 on iTunes. Do you personally feel “S&M” was offensive to the point that it needed a ban?
