Christina Aguilera has slammed censors for cutting out scenes considered too raunchy for TV from her new video.
MTV bosses deemed the original cut of Aguilera's new single Can't Hold Us Down too steamy for its predominantly teen audience.
But the 22-year-old hit back saying male rappers get away with hardcore antics in their videos and she has been singled out because she is a woman.
"It's funny. There are all those hip-hop videos where women are objectified, but when a woman does it, it's a shock," she said.
"But it's something I'm proud of."
Aguilera is no stranger to the censors.
The video for Dirrty - featuring the singer in a pair of leather chaps and very little else boxing another woman in similarly scant attire - also ran into trouble.
But Aguilera maintains she has stretched the bounds of taste and decency no further than Madonna.
She stormed: "It's not like Madonna hasn't been there before.
"It's not like you've never seen a woman who's comfortable with her sexuality and her body and with being in control of her surroundings and situation."
