Well our favourite bad girl Rihanna’s back in the news again. This time round her Rogue Perfume posters have got her in hot water with the UK Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) who have called for the removal of the posters from areas where children can see them.

The 'sexually suggestive' image together with Rihanna’s pose which is 'of defiance rather than vulnerability' (we don’t understand this part either) will now be taken down after a single complaint about it was filed. The complainant said the ad was 'overly sexual and demeaning to women' and 'featured a sexualised and provocative image which was unsuitable for children to see'.
