Rihanna’s We Found Love video banned in France

Rihanna is too hot for France.

The pop superstar's video for her #1 hit, “We Found Love,” has been banned from appearing on French television before 10pm because of its explicit content. reports the Supreme Council of Audiovisual of France (CSA) has banned the release of the clip on any French channel before 10 pm, due to what it calls far too much footage showing its stars acting in a "self-destructive" fashion, taking part in "domestic violence", taking drugs and drinking alcohol.”

Rihanna and former British Olympic boxing hopeful, Dudley O'Shaughnessy, who plays her boyfriend in the video, also appear in scenes of "pronounced suggestive" content, the CSA said.

Currently the most played song on French radio, “We Found Love” is the first single from the star's new album “Talk That Talk,” and has achieved the highest number of sales in France over five weeks.
