Ciara, Timberlake’s ‘Love Sex Magic’ Video Banned in Turkey
It appears as though Ciara‘s sexed up image is not a big hit all over the globe. The video for the R&B diva’s latest single ‘Love Sex Magic,’ featuring Justin Timberlake, off her third album, ‘Fantasy Ride’ has struck a cord with authorities in Turkey. The video, which features Ciara dancing for a voyeur Timberlake in a few skintight bodysuits, has been banned by the Eurasian country due to concerns over its sexually explicit nature.
The Radio and Television Supreme Council has barred TV channels in the predominantly Muslim country from showing the video because “it contains sexual outfits, dancing and scenes that are contrary to the development of children and youth and morality in general,” according to the Milliyet newspaper.
Ciara sat down with the BoomBox to discuss her steamy video back in March. “Basically it’s me just creating my own ‘Love Sex Magic’ show, and I was inspired by [Las Vegas] shows in particular, especially the Crazy Horse show, and I just wanted to create my own interpretation of that,” Ciara told the BoomBox.
In other Ciara news, the singer is currently on tour with Britney Spears. Ciara is also set to hit the big screen in the delayed film-adaptation of the gospel play ‘Mama, I Want to Sing!’
