Rihanna Is Upset With Title Change of 'S&M'
Due to its racy lyrics and title, Rihanna's latest single "S&M" was axed from the playlist of BBC Radio 1. But the song, which music video is banned in 11 countries, has now been played on the U.K. radio, only they censor the title and change it into "Come On".
"Are you f**king kidding me??? I'm on it!" RiRi posted on Twitter when she was informed of the title change. Later when a fan asked if she was okay with the situation, the Bajan songstress made it clear that she's not happy. She exclaimed, "Absolutely NOT!!!"
Taken from Rihanna's new album "Loud", the song officially makes its debut at No. 20 on U.K. Singles chart this week. The weekly rundown is compiled by the British-based Official Charts Company and unveiled every Sunday on Radio 1.
When BBC bosses announced that they refused to allow their DJs play the song last week, a spokesperson said, "We are waiting for an edited version before deciding whether it will be played in the daytime." But it's unclear whether the censorship is done by BBC or RiRi's label, Island Def Jam.
