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.

I don't think it's any more graphic or obscene than a lot of the other videos that are out there.

Which is not to say that I like it.

And I think it is going to give people epileptic seizures, which might be the real reason that BET won't air it.

With all the ass shaking booty boucing video vixens in male rappers videos on BET, which is ran by a woman, why is it banned when a female rapper shakes her ass, and bounces her booty with a thong lost up her ass crack calling out Stupid Hoes.

First, I don't believe this woman "represents" the black community any more than that Rebecca Black "represents" the white community. And I highly doubt that is the reason BET banned the video.


Second, I have seen a lot worse/obnoxious/obsene videos, by men and women, black and white.


Third, I think BET banned the video BECAUSE IT SUCKS!


Nuff said...........

Who makes videos anymore anyway. That went out like 10 years ago. mtv made the video age, and mtv destroyed the video age with reality tv. Am I the only one that thinks all rap/hip hop sounds the same? How can "fans" keep listening to the same rehashed crap? jay z has his baby crying on his song. How is that talented? Learn to play an instrument instead of just pushing play on a button.

BET...Really? How are you going to place a ban on her song, but most of the music videos you play are in some way disrespectful to women in other ways. SERIOUSLY...BET Network is embarassing enough to OUR community in general. Come on BET #doBETTER

I don't need to look it up to know I hate it. Never heard this song, but I already know how bad it is. I hope some day people will go back to writing actual songs with intelligent lyrics.

I think you confused two videos. Stupid Hoe does have the language but her new video "Turn Me On" is the video with MANY naked (kind of) people in it.

Really?!?! just watched video, harmless, anyone recall a song that played for months called Thong Song. Plenty more women far more naked. If BET actually cared they would have to ban 65% of all their videos

Didn't Ella Fitzgerald just pass away??? Listening to this crap that passes for music is probably what killed her.
