YouTube has decided that Rihanna’s racy video for "S&M" isn’t for everyone.
A day after Rihanna released the raunchy clip, YouTube has flagged it as inappropriate, meaning that users under the age of 18 can’t view it.
The news didn’t bother Rihanna. She just announced via Twitter that the video was still available to watch on her official website. “U can now view the S&M video on www.Rihannanow.com UNFLAGGED!" she tweeted. Although, she did point out that fans "watched Umbrella…I was full nude."
Rihanna’s BFF Katy Perry poked fun at Rihanna’s predicament, tweeting, “@rihanna yo batch lemme borrow those latex dresses!" To which, RiRi sarcastically replied, “ur a role model, u can’t use those words!! #appalled lol!!”
Whether YouTube thinks she’s too risqué or not, Rihanna may have to clean up her act (at least a little) for the Grammy Awards. It’s just been announced that RiRi has joined the list of performers for the ceremony, which airs February 13 on CBS.
