(Newser) – Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears are too racy for daytime French TV. France's broadcast watchdog, CSA, says TV channels should only show Cyrus' video for "Wrecking Ball" and Spears' video for "Work B**ch" after 10pm, when French broadcasters show a range of programming more suited to adults. Cyrus writhing naked around a wrecking ball is too sexually explicit, it says. And Spears, with her bondage gear, shows "a sadomachistic universe representing women in a way that risks shocking many viewers." If you want more Britney, though, just click here.

Really? I went to France and openly saw gay porn sold in the news-stands. Yet a girl on a ball is wrong?

good for france. Unlike here in the US where we somehow hold these women up as role models. The only way they could have been made more popular is if they shot a bunch of people too.....
