Rihanna's 'S&M' video: Too hot for your computer?

Rihanna is courting controversy with the kinky video for her new single "S&M." According to the U.K.'s Mirror, the video is already banned in 11 countries and MTV is working on a toned down recut. We've got Ri-Ri writhing around in a range of skin-tight latex outfits, looking sexy, as expected. What's not sexy is the images of reporters wearing ball gags and a leashed Perez Hilton pretending to whiz on a fire hydrant (we're still washing out our eyes). Video imagery aside, the lyrics tend toward the raunchy, too: "Whips and chains excite me," " Sex in the air, I love the smell of it." Ummm, eww. This is definitely not a choice for the junior cotillion playlist. Watch the utterly NSFW video. What do you think? Controversy fodder or much ado about nothing?...

Rihanna couldn't be reached for comment, but if true, the split would only add to the recent spate of celebrity break-ups (ScarJo/Ryan Gosling, Michael C. Hall/Jennifer Carpenter, Zac Efron/Vanessa Hudgens). Source: Us Weekly...

(Photo courtesy Elle) Rihanna's come a long way since the night, a little over a year ago, when then-boyfriend Chris Brown threatened and physically abused her ahead of the 2009 Grammy Awards. In the July issue of Elle, the pop songstress opens up about the tumultuous end of her relationship Brown ("I just didn't want to feel the pain, the confusion") and her life with new boyfriend Matt Kemp ("It keeps me sane"). A few highlights: On new boyfriend Matt Kemp: "I have a boyfriend. I'm so happy. I feel really comfortable, and it's so easy.
