Rihanna S&M Song Video Controversy: Is It Too Scandalous?

January 29, 2011

When a song says “I may be bad but I’m perfectly good at it,” what else do you expect? Rihanna’s S&M song is stirring up some controversy with its lyrics and the racy video. For the juicy details, with more photos and videos, keep reading below!

This 22 year old has a reputation of pushing the limits and that’s what she did with this single from her newest album ‘Loud.’ It was directed by Melina Matsoukas and sends a strong message that she is confident in who she is! You can see it for yourself below.

When I saw the beginning of the the Rihanna S&M song I wasn’t sure what all the fuss was about. As the video goes on though, I can see why some people have a problem with it. She wears her typical racy outfits while people of the press are bound and messed with. With headlines that have come out about the singer flashing on the screen, it is obvious she is fighting back against people who don’t understand her. Another part of the lyrics say:

“Sticks and stones may break my bones but chains and whips excite me.”

Overall I actually think it was very clever, and though some parts are probably not for younger people, I don’t think it was inappropriate. It was even restricted on YouTube to viewers under the age of 18 and other than that people should know what to expect for her. We did get a preview last year, with a photo, so we shouldn’t be too shocked.

Reactions to the production are pretty varied but overall I think people like it, but are just a little shocked. What are your thoughts on Rihanna’s S&M song & video? Check it out here, as well as these great pictures, and then leave me your comments below.
