Singer Ke$ha is facing a backlash from officials at America's Parent Television Council (PTC) after footage of her drinking her own urine was shown on TV.

She was caught on camera guzzling her pee on Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life, which aired on MTV in the US on Tuesday.

Campaigners at the PTC are fuming over the "disgusting, vile" scene, and are now demanding cable TV providers allow customers to have control over the content which enters their homes.

A statement from PTC President Tim Winter reads: "If given the opportunity, I can't imagine that parents would want to pay for a cable network that airs an episode of a pop star drinking her own urine."
