Nicki Minaj's New Music Video

BANNED from BET

2/1/2012 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0131_minaj_bet_ex_stupid_hoe_video
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 damn raunchy too, showing several nearly naked female figures. Normally this is where we'd post the video ... but in this case, just Google it.

It's pretty great -- especially if you like Nicki's butt in a thong.

For those who don't know who Nicki is, basically Nicki is the hip-hop version of Lady GaGa.

This broad symbolizes EVERYTHING that is wrong with the music industry. She has NO talent at all. She banks on the fact that she "knows" other crappy rappers. She wears ridiculous outfits to bring attention to herself, her makeup, attitude and personality (issues) are all an over the top production. She.Is.A.Gawd.Awful.Excuse.For.Music. I don't understand how people can listen to this garbage. I wish every ONE, every RADIO, every "music" STATION and every Magazine would BAN her and the likes of her (lady ca-ca, lil wayne, kanye west, drake, riannah and all the other cookie cutter, auto-tuned, fake, processed excuses for "musicians". It's never going to stop and it's only going to get worse until people STOP encouraging this crap. The fact that these people are famous in the first place shows just how far the music industry has fallen.

It seems to be on life-support and dying fast. All this CRAP out today is NOT music.
