Miley’s ‘Wrecking Ball’ and Britney’s ‘Work B***h’ videos banned in France

Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears’ raunchy music videos have been banned from daytime television in France.

 

The country’s broadcasting watchdog Conseil Superieur de l’Audiovisuel (CSA) has ruled that channels can only show Miley’s ‘Wrecking Ball’ and Britney’s ‘Work Bitch’ videos after a 10pm watershed.

 

According to CSA, the ‘Wrecking Ball’ promo, which shows Miley swinging naked on a demolition ball and licking a sledge hammer is too sexually explicit.

 

The ‘Work Bitch’ video, which shows Britney in bondage dress portrays “a sadomasochistic universe representing women in a way that risks shocking many viewers”.

 

The watchdog said that some French TV channels were showing the videos in the daytime without parental guidance warnings, according to Sky News.

 

At the end of last year, Miley debuted another controversial video for her track ‘Adore You’.

 

In the clip, the 21-year-old singer is seen writhing around in white bedsheets, and films herself licking and biting herself.

 

At one point the pop star runs her hands down her body before letting her fingers slide under the elastic band of her underwear as she bites her flesh and sucks her thumb whilst staring suggestively into the camera.

 

‘Wrecking Ball’ has now had more than 474 million views on YouTube, while ‘Work Bitch’ has amassed more than 70 million hits.
