Superstar Beyonce Knowles' new video with fellow singer Usher has been deemed too steamy for TV.

The Grammy and BRIT-winning singer asked R+B star Usher to appear in her NAUGHTY GIRL video - to appeal to female fans.

However, one scene of the POP YA COLLAR singer slapping Knowles' backside has had to be censored.

A source tells Britain's DAILY STAR tabloid, "It's a sexy video, but that was going too far.

"She wanted someone good-looking and a great dancer for the male lead.

"Usher's a big fan and refused payment for appearing in it... but says she owes him a favour now."
