Perez Hilton doesn't get all the fuss. The influential blogger is trying to make sense of the dizzying controversy surrounding Rihanna's tongue-wagging video for her new single 'S&M.' The kinky clip features the raven-haired hell-raiser sporting a skin-tight pink latex outfit and other bondage clothing while being hounded by reporters wearing ball gags. The fallout? 'S&M' has already been flagged by YouTube, reportedly banned in 11 countries and edited down by MTV.

Hilton appears in the clip, playfully being walked like a dog (leash and all) by Ri-Ri and pretending to pee on a fire hydrant. "That was Rihanna's idea," a laughing Perez tells PopEater. "I really don't think it's that controversial. I think that people just want it to be controversial."
