What do France and Val have in common?
France limits viewing of Rihanna's new video
Nov. 21, 2011, 1:01 AM EST
"Rihanna has sparked a backlash in France after her "We Found Love" video was deemed too raunchy for daytime viewers. Officials at the Supreme Audiovisual Council of France have banned the video from airing on TV before 10 p.m. due to its explicit content.
Authorities criticized Rihanna's "self-destructive" behavior in the video, which features the singer smoking cigarettes, shoplifting and being spanked. She is also cited for appearing in scenes of "pronounced suggestive" content with British boxer/model Dudley O'Shaughnessy."
When was the last time you heard that FRANCE thought anything was "too raunchy?"
