Rihanna and Britney Spears's girl-on-girl kiss at Billboard Music Awards is deemed too hot for TV. Parents Television Council (PTC) sounded off their protests against the "S&M" show to ABC, the national network which aired the awards show live from MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday night, May 22.

"What happened in Vegas should have stayed in Vegas, as the saying goes," the PTC president and resident wit master Tim Winter shared his outrage in a statement. "It certainly has no place at 8:00 p.m. on the publicly-owned broadcast airwaves."

"I cannot imagine what would possibly lead the ABC television network to air a profanity-laced, S&M sex show on primetime broadcast television. The overtly sexualized performance by Rihanna and Britney Spears was no accident or mishap, but a deliberate effort to target teens with images and lyrics that glamorize whips, chains and other sexual fantasies."

Rihanna and Britney made the "S&M" duet to kick off the Billboard prize giving event. In an effort to fit the R-rated lyrics of the song, the two female artists delivered an equally-racy show. They were dressed in bondage outfit and closed the set by sharing what seemed to be a kiss on the lips. However, from a picture making its round on the web, it can be seen that Britney deliberately gave her right cheek when RiRi leaned in for the smooch.

Rihanna has a huge influence on culture today, of course girls are gonna wanna act like that if they think they're gonna get the attention that she's getting ! My point is that ANYONE CAN DO WHAT SHE'S doing. I can get half naked and sing ( without sounding like a strangling crow ) a song about whips and sex, the people who rise above that are those who are truely sucessful.

you all seem to think superstars dancing like this and singing songs such as rihanna does has an effect on how teenage girls behave, dont they have a brain of their own? just because rihanna can perform like this and dance like this doesnt mean that the population of earth that are teenage daughters need to start behaving like this, im sure kids have seen much worse on the internet that this performance so stop being idiots and talking about making it suitable for 8pmn the song is S&M expect a raunchy performance & get over it!
