India bans 'The Simple Life' star Paris Hilton's new music video

UPI News Service, 08/23/2006 

India's Central Board of Film Certification has banned from TV the video made by "The Simple Life" star Paris Hilton for her new song "Stars Are Blind."

An official at EMI Virgin India Ltd., told People magazine the board said the clip too many sexual connotations.

"In fact, we had edited the video and sent a fresh copy, but they weren't happy with that," said Narendra Kusnur, the label's manager of international Artists and Repertoire.

The label has decided to circumvent the ban by streaming Hilton's video on a promotional Web site in partnership with a shampoo company.

"To the best of our knowledge, there are no rules yet regarding censorship on the 'Net so we plan to use the online platform to generate buzz," said EMI Virgin Marketing Manager Kaveri Khullar.
