This 'sexually suggestive' Rihanna ad just got censored in Britain

Rihanna doesn't do modest.

The pop queen is stirring up controversy in Britain for a raunchy ad that shows her practically naked with her legs raised against a bottle of Rogue perfume. The country's advertising ethics agency said it received complaints about the "sexually suggestive" ad, which some claimed is inappropriate for children.

The ethics agency ultimately decided that while the ad is "unlikely to be demeaning to women or to cause serious or widespread [offense]," Rihanna's pose is "provocative" enough to warrant restrictions to where it can be displayed.

For their part, the ad's creators defended their work, saying it depicted the pop star as being in a "position of power... which suggested one with the courage to challenge boundaries." Decide for yourself below. -- Jordan Valinsky
