Brit Awards viewers were left baffled after parts of rap star Kendrick Lamar’s performance were muted by ITV.
Many assumed that Lamar’s songs – Feel and New Freezer – were muted due to bad language. But it seems the main issues were references to drugs and oral sex.
Some muted sections featured mentions of “bad dope” and “cocaine white”.
The US superstar himself actually changed the most overt bad language in his lyrics – but fell foul of the censor’s button for the drug words and oblique slang references to oral sex.
