Rihanna and Britney Spears turned up the heat during their recent performance of "S&M" on the Billboard Music Awards, however the Parents Television Council are calling the show's opening number inappropriate for the time slot in which it aired.
The PTC issued the following statement:
- "I cannot imagine what would possibly lead the ABC television network to air a profanity-laced, S&M sex show on primetime broadcast television.
The overtly sexualized performance by Rihanna and Britney Spears was no accident or mishap, but a deliberate effort to target teens with images and lyrics that glamorize whips, chains and other sexual fetishes. What happened in Vegas should have stayed in Vegas, as the saying goes. It certainly has no place at 8:00 pm on the publicly-owned broadcast airwaves."
This isn't the first time the Billboard Music Awards have come under fire with the PTC. See the previous incident ... after the jump.
Back on December 10, 2003 ... presenter Nicole Richie used inappropriate language during the show which led the FCC to conclude that her language violated decency law . Ouch!
