Rihanna's new video for 'S&M' has certainly been provoking its fair share of controversy. It was directed by Melina Matsoukas who previously directed the videos 'Hard', 'Rude Boy' and 'Rockstar 101' for the singer.
Rihanna posted some preview pics of the video on her Twitter account before it was premiered on February 1st.
It showed the singer in a number of seductive poses, including dressed in latex, done up like a Playboy bunny, a shot of her tied up on a bed and celebrity blogger Perez Hilton on a dog leash.
The video was deemed 'inappropriate' for YouTube viewers under the age of 18. However, Rihanna did not agree with the video sites ruling.
On her Twitter, Rihanna responded by saying: 'They watched 'Umbrella'...I was full nude'. She later posted the full video on her official site.
Friend Katy Perry jokingly Tweeted in response to the video: 'ya batch lemme borrow those latex dresses!' Rihanna replied saying: 'ur a role model, u can't use those words!!'. Katy responded with: 'SUCK IT'.
The video has since been banned in 11 countries.
