Beyonce Banned In Britain
Well I guess sometimes being too sexy can just ...get you banned from countries nowadays huh?
Beyonce's new ad for her perfume, Heat, in which she was shown in a red silk dress, was banned after parents bombarded the advertising watchdogs expressing that their children were being exposed to too much naughty, sexiness. They have decided that the ad will only be allowed to air starting at 7:30 p.m.
The ad company involved with the perfume, Coty, says that the ad was done in a certain way to represent Beyonce's "sexy chic style" and denies that the "bumping and grinding was overtly graphic"(via E!).
"At no point was Beyoncé naked," a rep for the company said, adding that the ad was "stylized and in keeping with other ads in the genre."
According to E!, The Advertising Standards Authority shot back saying that it should never have aired before dark. The ASA labeled the minute-long commercial "sexually provocative" and "unsuitable" for young children.
"Beyonce's body movements and the camera's prolonged focus on shots of her dress slipping away to partially expose her breasts created a sexually provocative ad that was unsuitable to be seen by young children," said the agency.
You be the judge, do you think it's too "sexy" for kids to see on TV? Read More to watch the Ad...
