Socialite Paris Hilton's debut single STARS ARE BLIND has been censored by Indian broadcasters, who claim the video is too sexual for TV.
The promo features Hilton writhing on a beach with a sexy male model, and touching herself as she breathily sings, "If you show me real love baby/ I'll show you mine/ I can make you nice and naughty/ Be the devil and angel too."
However, bosses at India's Central Board of Film Certification determined the promo has too many "sexual connotations" to be broadcast on any of nation's TV channels.
NARENDRA KUSNUR, manager of A+R of EMI Virgin India, says, "In fact, we had edited the video and sent a fresh copy, but they weren't happy with that."
Hilton fans in India will be able to catch the video on shampoo firm Clinicall Clear's website. The company have sponsored the aspiring singer's music campaign.
EMI Virgin marketing manager KAVERI KHULLAR adds, "To the best of our knowledge, there are no rules yet regarding censorship on the net so we plan to use the online platform to generate buzz."
