U.K. Restricts Rihanna’s Rogue Perfume Ad for ‘Sexual Suggestiveness’

First Instagram didn’t want to see her nipples and now the U.K. doesn’t want to see her perfume ad. At least, not everywhere.

The ad shows a naked-from-the-waist-up Rihanna, her chest fully covered by her arms, wearing underwear and high heels and propping her legs up against an oversized bottle of Rogue.
