Rihanna has never shied away from being sexy in her videos, but it seems she's gone too far for some with her colorful video and lyrics for "S&M." Not only has the video been deemed "inappropriate for some users" by YouTube, where viewers must verify they are 18 or older before watching it, but a handful of radio stations are also reacting to the song's racy lyrics.
In the video " while singing lyrics like "Sex in the air/ I don't care/ I love the smell of it/ Sticks and stones may break my Bones/ But chains and whips excite me" " she dances around in latex, poking fun at the ball-gag-wearing media. The clip includes whips, a dog-leashed Perez Hilton and Rihanna being handled by the press.
