Madonna's Too Blue On Red Hot Day
(news.sky.com ) - The BBC has received a number of complaints after Madonna swore during her performance at Radio One's Big Weekend.
The singer repeatedly used bad language as she spoke to the crowd during her set at the festival.
Her sentences were littered with expletives as she told them: "I need to feel some love" and "I'm going to do an old song. But not that old."
Her set also raised eyebrows because the soon to be 50-year-old wore a skimpy outfit and performed raunchy dance moves.
Madonna's performance at the UK's biggest free festival was broadcast live on Radio One and BBC Three, drawing complaints over the bad language.
It was followed by an apology by Radio One DJ Zane Lowe.
A BBC spokeswoman said the swearing had been after the watershed and the coverage was preceded by a warning that there could be strong language.
This is not the first time Madonna has landed the BBC in trouble over swearing.
Last year, Ofcom instructed the corporation to issue on-air apologies after she swore during Live Earth, prompting 150 complaints.
