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.

The video is "damn raunchy" .... and Nelly's "Tipdrill" was okay huh? Sliding a credit card down someone's nearly bare ass is a good enough video to air on BET? Lol gotta love double standards.

Jeez, when I looked at the picture, I just assumed it was because of the big white eyes, garish white lip, minstrel aspect of it. I don't know about the nudity part. Let's face it, for years BET's stock in trade was the bad a$$ed rap singer ogling half naked rump shaking, degraded girls.
The song does suck though, and is a total embarrassment to the human race, so that might actually be the reason.

Come one people, really? It was obviously banned because if you have epilepsy it could cause a stroke with its strobe effect on some portions of the video. The video itself is not nearly as bad as other videos, as other posters have pointed out.

Not saying the song or video is any good, mind you. Just don't make something out of nothing.

first off this is all nicki's fans fault because nicki thinks she can get away with stupid songs like this. secondly nicki talks about kim in all of her song even in her mixtapes. thirdly nicki nobody wants to know about how good your Pu**y is because honestly nobody asked you and quite frankly i doubt u that good n u probably dried up like the grand canyon lol. when will the music industry stop cosigning horrible rappers like big sean lil wayne drake lil b basically all of young money. LIL kim please hurry up with your album bring back the REAL RECIPE OF RAP
