I believe the record company put out a new edit that removed more of the 
word.  Overheard the PD & MD of our CHR discussing this a couple weeks ago.

You must be referring to the accousic version from her Grammy 
performance.  Unlike the single, the label did not provide an edit of that 
one...Kiss produced their own with the 2 sexual references edited...the 
reference to going down in the theatre replaced by a couple of piano notes, 
the F-bomb by an "oh yeah".  Kudos to whoever produced that edit at 
Kiss...it was not an easy one to do.
