VIDEO: Nicki Minaj Video Banned From BET
Don’t expect to catch Nicki Minaj’s latest music video “Stupid H*e” on BET — because TMZ has learned the network is REFUSING to air it.
We spoke with a rep for BET who wouldn’t specify exactly why the network has banned the video — simply saying BET will not be broadcasting it.
But sources at the company tell us, the ban was put in place because the video’s just too explicit for TV.
The song lyrics alone are bad enough — repeating the phrase “stupid h*e” dozens of times — but the video itself is raunchy too, showing several nearly naked female figures.
That’s what TMZ reported.
So naturally, when I googled this video on my company computer I was thinking its contents were going to get me fired. But other than being really annoying, I don’t understand this ban. I’ve seen WAY worse on BET.
As for the naked female TMZ refers to… it’s a doll. Seriously. Freeze frame it. I don’t remember Barbie having that much junk in her trunk, but it’s just a doll.
What do you think of the video?
I feel I must put forth a tiny warning before viewing. I don’t see it as being super explicit.. more just repetitive and agitating.. but I don’t want those easily offended to be.. well, offended.
