Miley Cyrus + Britney Spears Deemed Too Hot for TV in France
Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears don't just have 'SMS (Bangerz)' in common. The pair now also share a ban from French television -- for being just way too sexy.
The Associated Press reports that French television will now only air Cyrus' 'Wrecking Ball' and Spears' 'Work Bitch' videos after 10PM. Cyrus' main problem was nudity, but Spears' issue went deeper with France's television watchdog groups, who claimed that it portrays "a sadomasochistic universe representing women in a way that risks shocking many viewers.” Ho-kay!
'Work Bitch' was also banned before 10PM in the U.K. because of the "overuse" of the word "bitch."
To be fair, Spears herself thought the original version of the video was too sexy and actually toned it down to the current version.
"A lot of sex goes into what I do but sometimes I would like to bring it back to the old days when there was like, one outfit through the whole video, and you’re dancing the whole video, and there’s not that much sex stuff going on," Spears confessed. "I cut out half the video because I am a mother and because, you know, I have children, and it’s just hard to play sexy mom while you’re being a pop star as well."
Sounds to us like BritBrit, as a mom, wouldn't be against the move!
