Rihanna's Single 'S&M' Toned Down by Record Label
Bosses at the BBC have defended a radio-friendly version of Rihanna's controversial track S&M - because the special edit of the song was provided by her record company. The Bajan beauty reacted with fury after learning her latest single - which features risky lyrics about sex, whips and chains - was introduced to Radio 1 listeners on Sunday, February 6 as "Come On".
Taking to her Twitter.com page, she raged, "Are you f**king kidding me??? I'm on it!"
But BBC chiefs have spoken out about the toned-down track, revealing Rihanna's music bosses provided a risk-free radio edit of the song so younger listeners could hear it on the airwaves. A BBC spokeswoman tells WENN, "We couldn't play the edit we had so we asked the record label and they provided us with a radio edit."
