From Indychannel.com – Fox held the 17th annual Teen Choice Awards on Sunday, but parts of the show seemed a little too grown up for the teen audience. “I’m glad to meet you. Turn up, girl, blow the speaker yeah, think about it now blow the speaker,” Flo Rida rapped at the Teen Choice Awards.
OK, maybe that sexual innuendo is too much for a show that’s aimed at kids as young as 13. And it didn’t stop there. Several of the nominees were considered too graphic for most teens to even watch. Fox censored the name of this Rihanna song, which was nominated for choice R&B / hip hop song alongside ‘Earned It’, The Weeknd’s sexually charged anthem from the BDSM flick “50 Shades of Gray.”
The videos from those two songs are age-restricted on YouTube, and for good reason. Both feature nudity and Rihanna’s was basically a seven minute snuff film. Both songs failed to take home a surfboard, but not every age-inappropriate nominee was shut out. “Thank you so much for choosing me. I appreciate it more than I can possibly say. It’s a true honor,” Channing Tatum said during his acceptance speech for Choice Summer Movie Star for “Magic Mike XXL.”
That was Channing Tatum accepting an award for his role in “Magic Mike XXL,” which, as you’re probably aware, is a movie about strippers. It was rated-R for sexual content, pervasive language, nudity and drug use. Not exactly teen friendly. (Video via Warner Bros. / “Magic Mike XXL”)
