After the BBC announce Rihanna’s provocative new single “S&M” under the title “Come On”, Rihanna blows her top on twitter after finding out from a fan. When tweeted by a fan asking why the single’s title had changed, RiRi replied “Are you f**king kidding me???”
The Only Girl in the World replied “Absolutely NOT!!!” when another fan asked if she approved of the name change.
The re-name happened when the Sunday chart was announced on BBC Radio 1, and comes after the video for the track was banned in 11 countries. Moreover, the BBC has refused to play the track, with provacative lyrics including “Sticks and Stones may break my bones, but chains and whips excite me” before 7pm.
The song joins the list of songs banned by teh BBC at some point, including the ban of “Relax” by Frankie Goes to Hollywood” and cutting of lyrics from “Fairytale of New York” by The Pogues.
