Mistress Ri's video nasty; S&M IS BANNED BY DAYTIME RADIO 1 AS NAUGHTY STAR GETS DIRTIER THAN EVER.

SHE sparked outrage by wearing next to nothing on the X Factor - but Rihanna shows no signs of toning it down any time soon.

The diva is back with her new single S&M - and the video is so steamy, it's already been banned from 11 countries and counting.

The vid features 22-year-old RiRi, writhing around in white latex ("with lube", she says), sucking a banana ("I made 'em give me a spit bucket in between takes"), wearing bondage gear and simulates sex with a lifesize doll.

And the words to the song are just as dirty as the images. "Sex in the air, I don't care, I love the smell of it," she sings. "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but chains and whips excite me." Oo-er!

Southern Asian countries immediately banned it, MTV is considering a re-edit, and BBC Radio 1 has vetoed playing it until after 7pm - so you won't hear it on Chris Moyles.

A Radio 1 spokesperson said: "We are waiting for an edited version before deciding whether it will be played in the daytime."

Ya hear that, Rihanna? Less of the sex smells, thank you.

Of course, the song's not about sex - what made you think it was? Rihanna says: "S&M is not about sex, well it's about metaphorical sex.

"The video has lots of whips, chains, dominatrix leather, latex... " Our RiRi's no stranger to ruffling feathers with her naughty films - the girl-on-girl action in Te Amo led to a ban on American TV.

Speaking of which, her gal pal Melissa Forde pops up in S&M - fuelling more lesbian rumours in the US. An on-set source said: "The stylist ordered in 15 gags for the dancers, but Rihanna grabbed them and started making her own photoshoot with Mel - pretending to whip her as they took pics on their mobiles. And She took a bag of 'souvenirs' home from the shoot.

"Ri loved one raunchy scene involving a female dancer - but it was cut from the final edit for being too much."

The mind boggles...
