Rihanna's We Found Love Banned In France!

| Filed under: MadonnaRihanna

Rihanna on WhoSay

Wow! Even the French think Rihanna's video is too sexy!

According to the officials at the Supreme Audiovisual Council of France, We Found Love promotes self-destructive behavior.


They're not too fond of the cigarettes, shoplifting, or spanking. Aww, boo.

France also finds the sexy time scenes just a little too suggestive for them. So they've banned the video from airing until 10pm.

Congrats, RiRi! You're makin' headlines like Madonna did!

Oh and P.S! U can watch the video all day long right here! Click that video!

    love this video. most definitely one of Rihanna's best. Melina Matsoukas did a great job. don't get why it was banned in France. i could understand it being banned in America, home of the puritanical hypocrites, but France. weird.

    This just shows a reckless relationship that's all. They found love together when they were both in a hopeless place in their life. "Love the way you lie" showed domestic violence and shop lifting lol. I like when she throws up ribbons.

    it does glamorize destructive behaviour and habits and she does have a young audience. Sad she cant be more of a positive influence as theres enough problems with young kids behaviour as it is. But no point banning videos these days as theyre all over the internet.

    The glamourisation of cigarettes I have to admit I agree with - there's nothing sexy about cigarettes and as much as people may disagree, people ARE influenced to give them a go by things like this. I don't know what the rule is in the United States, but it's illegal to glamourise smoking in most countries.

    As for the sexy stuff… it's just to be expected from Rihanna, isn't it? If France wants to ban it then let them. People will just watch it on YouTube.

    not fond of cigarettes PARIS is the only place i been in years i couldnt BREATHE IN THE CAFE for cigarette smoke revolting!!!

  9. 9

    Madonna did it but she is white.

  10. 10

    I think the video was banned because of the LACK OF TALENT of the artist…just sayin'

  11. 11

    They probably are misogynists!

  12. 12

    This is the first Rihanna song that I have liked. Then I saw the video. Now I hate the song. So fucked up!

  13. 13

    you like cigarettes now asshole?

  14. 14

    Re: lington
    Madonna isn't the first person to have a video banned, dipshit! And her Erotica/JML phase was so phony.

  15. 15

    She's basically promoting that sex, drug and abusive relationship are okay…and then again she can't put some clothes on..her songs are good, but she sucks.

  16. 16

    To glorify, glamorize, romanticize and idolize abusive relationships, is reckless, ignorant, imbecilic, weak - and dangerous. So with that said, I'm glad it at least got "partially" banned.

  17. 17

    Nothing against rhianna or any other singer out there but c mon man!!!!!! No on realizes little kids watch this crap .. Would you want your kid to watch this stuff???

    Rihanna is killing these hoes with her videos (along with Katy Perry). That's why Lady GaGa is trying to step up her game because the public has gotten tired of her, though she should just disappear until next May and release another album. Also, I wouldn't be surprised to see Bruno Mars get banned in France, LOL!

  19. 19

    What?come on now.Rihanna rocks.and her songs are awesome.so I don't know why France would ban something like this.they're just stupid.

  20. 20

    Not a big Rihanna fan. Like the song, and the video is really well done. It doesn't glamorize self-destructive behavior, it simply portrays it. So tired of people not being able to tell the difference. The relationship is bust in the end– that's the point.

  21. 21

    I like it.

  22. 22

    If we all had perfect relationships… well that just doesn't exist. Also, ugly situations are glamorous. I love this video.

  23. 23

    It's not the smoking or shoplifting they are most likely worked up about, it's probably the fact that she OD's…

  24. 24


    The French are a funny race.
    They fight with their feet,
    and fuck with their face.

  25. 25

    well, maybey in the US you prefer show in a clip a girl drinking, smoking, take drugs and have sex to your children… but in france we don't.

    And we could also make a remark… isn't it hypocritical to hide tits when you let thoses things be normal ??

  26. 26

    Good at least one country think that this video is not a good example. I don't really a fan of Rihanna. But as long as I remember her videos always showing off her half naked body. What else she can offer other than showing off her body? Seriously!!!!
