Lies! Was RiRi's Outrage Over S&M Censorship A Publicity Stunt?!

Uh-oh! Someone has been caught lie-telling!

Rihanna recently expressed her dismay via Twitter with BBC's Radio 1 for toning down the content in her new track, S&M, to the extent that even the title was changed to Come On!

However, according to the radio station, it was the singer's OWN TEAM and her label, Def Jam, that changed the lyrics and distributed the 'radio-friendly' version!

Is that so? Sounds like somebody wanted a publicity stunt!

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Radion 1 has revealed that the original version of the track WILL still be played, but only during later hours of the day!

They explain:

‘During daytime hours, as younger audiences are listening, we are playing the radio edit which is called Come On. However, we will continue to play the original track in specialist shows with an appropriate introduction. It is common practice to play radio edits of certain tracks in daytime.’

We STILL can't really understand what the big deal is with this song!

A lot WORSE has gotten airplay without being censored!

Ugh. Whatever!

Thoughts??

    I'm sorry, what did you say? I was too distracted by that monstrous forehead to take notice.



  2. 2

    Who cares about this? A friend took a piss after her at an after party and she took a huge shit that smelled like wet cat shit



  3. 3

    Where do you get all these buses to throw people under? Do you go to city auctions?



  4. 4

    Caught "lie-telling"? Wouldn't "telling lies" be more grammatically correct?

    Just more smoke and mirrors from the dark wizards of her brand. BDSM is being used everywhere now to demean people and brain wash them into being submissive and violent versions of their TRUE selves. Just because worse things were aired doesn't mean the artists and the fans best interests were ever in dark Def Jam's mind.

    UGH…I do not like her…

    MAYBE because we don't want our 12 year old kids singing S&M to the radio and then asking us what that means? I know we have to sensor our kids but this is playing on regular radio stations that are censored enough and not to sensor this is not good for our young'ens out there.

    It takes some sick motherfuckers to come up with this kind of publicity stunt. Who wants to sit around all day thinkin up this kind of shit unless you have a seriously twisted mind? But I don't doubt it - there are sickos in all businesses who find conniving and manipulating others to be quite satisfying.

    Who cares?
    Does anyone know where I can find that shirt though? I love it! :D

    Is it really suitable to play a song with the lyrics "chains and whips excite me" at a time when little kids could hear? Just because you were in the video doesn't mean it's acceptable for everyone!



  12. 12

    i don't think she knows what her "team" does. she's just a cash cow for the label.



  13. 13

    I mean…. i like the song its catchy.. (even tho I don't like Rhianna) but I definitely think the radio edit is more appropriate. Like it or not.. radio is free and EASILY accessible by children, and Singing about S&M is not the best message to send our kids.. not to say most music now a days is.. because it isn't.. unless your listening to radio disney.. If you dont want to hear it censored.. go buy her fkn album and shuttup.

    Re: Tracy1989 – its really a dress, and if you see the whole thing, you wont want it lol



  15. 15

    wow she lied again what else is new.



  16. 16

    Why does she always seem to look like a tranny? She has her good days, then she has her tranny days.
    Didn't realize she was trying to appeal to Gaga's fans.

    Seriously, the song sucks. The video sucks. Go away. Remember when music was good? I don't either, it was so long ago now.



  17. 17

    They edit chains and whips and that is ridiculous only because it makes it sound like shes saying something even worse being censored like that. What were they thinkin releasing that as a single if they couldn't play it properly?



  18. 18

    She admitted before that her management made up the rumor about her and Jay-Z to help her career when she was first starting out, so this wouldn't surprise me.



  19. 19

    my little sister asked me today what's S&M after rihanna was on tv



  20. 20

    I guess Chris Brown was right.
    She loves to be beat up before, during and after sex, it makes her all wet.



  21. 21

    She is a desperate clown. We are the ones that should be outraged! We are the ones that have to look at her stupid face, hair and clothes!



  22. 22

    maybe she didnt know her label told the radio station to do that…. just saying



  23. 23

    S&M is a horrible song. She should release Raining Men next.



  24. 24

    Really? Smell of sex in the air isn't the worst you've heard on the radio? Yes, let's have every tween girl out there listen to this song and become huge sluts. Yay!



  25. 25

    Re: dwafishon – turn your radio onto another channel then…



  26. 26

    I see nothing wrong with the video or the song….love the song
