    Too sexy for TV. That's how French officials deem Rihanna's explosive video for "We Found Love."

    WENN reports that officials at the Supreme Audiovisual Council of France have banned the clip from airing on TV before the watershed at 10 PM due to its R-rated content. It is a sexed up video, that's for sure.

    Authorities criticized Rihanna's "self-destructive" behavior in the video, which features the singer engaging in acts like smoking , shoplifting and being spanked.

    The video for her single "S&M," for which she was sued by photographer David LaChapelle for copyright infringement, was banned in more than 10 countries. It also cost her a pretty penny, as she settled out of court.

    RiRi is a suggestive gal with her videos, and her image is blazing hot, so we're not shocked by any of this.



    What are your thoughts on Rihanna's "We Found Love" video? Is it naughty enough to be banned?
