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!
‘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!
