Parent Group Goes After Rihanna and Britney

Uh oh. What do you think? Over the top?

According to

The watchdog group, the Parents Television Council, is protesting the two singers' performance from the billboard awards.

Here's what they're saying:

"The song title alone reeks of the adult entertainment industry and last night's performance wasn't far from it. What happened in Vegas should have stayed in Vegas, as the saying goes. It certainly has no place at 8:00 pm on the publicly-owned broadcast airwaves."

Ha! We get it! They used that clever tourism phrase that Vegas uses! Do you get it???

Come on, people. Not only was this later at night (8pm is MUCH better than, say, when kids are getting home from school), but the show is aware of FCC guidelines. We're positive the content was thoroughly discussed before the go-ahead was given.

The PTC continues:

"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 that glamorize whips, chains and other sexual fetishes."
