    The English are prudes!

    Or for those being picky ... British.

    Discuss.

    Reason i say this is i was listening on the news about all this hoo-haa over Rhianna's new track - S&M, the lyrics, the video, the whole shebang.

    I heard it on the radio. It censors out chains & whips as in "...c***** & w**** excite me....".
    Now ignoring the fact that she puts whips and chains in a sentence back to front, why on earth is this even censored?

    Go back a year or so to her track Rude Boy. Now i could be wrong here, but i'm damn sure i heard on the radio, her lines "big boy can you get it up" and "are you big enough" get played perfectly fine.

    What's the difference really?
    Are we not a bit OTT with censorship? Yet at the same time we want to be promoting free speech & individualism etc? Ok.

    I Agree Bhalay207.. Political Correctness gone mad as per usuall.. Seems the way this countrys is heading :- We will all end up like Robots without an opinion on anything because we'll be too scared to say owt due to upsetting some one/people

    My fave is when people ring up ofcom because something on tv has offended them.. im like p*ss off will u.. Its television.. its not real and its (mostly) none factual so stfu.. If you dont like it then turn over.. simples!

    It was far more exciting 'back in the day' listening to Prodigy tracks that were banned from some radio stations, as an example.

    Rhianna has deliberately blown it out of all proportion to get more sales.

    The difference between her reaction to the censorship and Prodigy's was, they they didnt give a shit about it. They knew they were good.

    I think the major problem here is somebody equating Rhianna's stuff to music!

    I know that she is one of those annoying ,whiny bint's who couldn't hold a note in a bucket, but don't ask me to pick it out in a lineup.

    there's been quite a few of these i've picked up.
    i remember rockstar by nickelback had the 'drug' in drug dealer blanked out.
    there was a song last summer (dont know/care who it was by) called dirty picture, first time i heard it on radio 1 it was the original, about a week later all mention of dirty pictures had been replaced.
    most recent one i can think of would be do it like a dude by jessie j, where the word 'mother' has been blanked out. i find this one even funnier as the 'f**cker' followed it was already replaced with the sound of a breaking window, but apparently the word mother is offenseive too.
