Angry activists at a TV parents group have branded Britney Spears and Rihanna's risque performance at the Billboard Music Awards a "profanity-laced sex show."

The two pop stars teamed up to duet on Rihanna's track "S&M" at the Las Vegas ceremony on Sunday, pole-dancing onstage in matching leather bodices with their hands clamped with handcuffs.

The performance, which opened the Billboard ceremony, has infuriated officials at the Parents Television Council (PTC).

A statement from PTC President Tim Winter reads, "The song title alone reeks of the adult entertainment industry and last night's performance wasn't far from it. What happened in Vegas should have stayed in Vegas, as the saying goes. It certainly has no place at 8pm on the publicly-owned broadcast airwaves.

"I cannot imagine what would possibly lead the ABC television network to air a profanity-laced, S&M sex show on primetime broadcast television.

"The overtly sexualized performance by Rihanna and Britney Spears was no accident or mishap, but a deliberate effort to target teens with images and lyrics that that glamorize whips, chains and other sexual fetishes."
