Miley Cyrus' Naked Video Too Racy For France

Music videos by Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears have been deemed too explicit for daytime television in France.

The country's broadcast watchdog has told channels to only show Cyrus' video for Wrecking Ball and Spears' video for Work B**** after 10pm.

In a statement, the Conseil Superieur de l'Audiovisuel (CSA) watchdog said some channels were showing them in the daytime and without any parental guidance warnings.

The Cyrus video, which mostly features the young pop star writhing around naked, is too sexually explicit, it says.

And Spears' video, which shows her in bondage gear, shows "a sadomachistic universe representing women in a way that risks shocking many viewers".

Cyrus hit the headlines last summer when her raunchy dance routine stole the show at the MTV Video Music Awards.

She appeared on stage in a nude-coloured bikini, dancing seductively with Robin Thicke during a performance of his hit Blurred Lines.
