'If there was a way to edit a version for it I would definitely do that,' the 'Goodies' hitmaker says during an interview in a recent event.

confirmed recent report which suggested that her "Ride" music video has been banned by BET. The 24-year-old R&B singer spoke about that matter when attending the red carpet of Maxim Hot 100 party at Paramount Studios.

"My video isn't playing on BET right now," Ciara told HipHollywood. She then added, "It would definitely be great if it was playing on BET, no doubt. If there was a way to edit a version for it I would definitely do that."

"Ride" music video is directed by Diane Martel and was premiered in April. It features Ciara performing slow, seductive dance moves. At one point, she puts her hands on her waist and lowers her tight pants to almost reveal her modesty before quickly raising them up again.

BET's move to snub the clip has made Ciara's devotees issue an online petition slamming the network. "We have been recently notified that Ciara's new Music Video 'Ride' is not being showed on B.E.T because it's too sexual," the fans wrote.

"Note that they play 'Invented Sex' [where he is having sex with a woman in the video] and Trey Songz 'Neighbors Know My Name' [Having sex with DIFFERENT woman]. I think that B.E.T is over analyzing this, or is just being disrespectful to Ciara. MTV and VH1 is playing 'Ride' and so are other stations. What are you B.E.T going to do about this because as a fan and Representative of Ciara you are being UNFAIR!"

"Ride" is the first single from Ciara's fourth studio album "" which will be released later this year. The song comes from the production hands of duo top-notch music makers Christopher "Tricky" Stewart and and features who also makes cameo appearance in the video.
