Nicki Minaj’s ‘Stupid Hoe’ is banned!

In related news, I’m pretty sure we found the last channel that actually plays music videos. Anyway, Nicki Minaj‘s much talked about video for Stupid Hoe hit the web last month, and since then it’s kind of split fans on whether or not it’s actually any good. BET has apparently sided with “not good” and has banned the music video from their channel without really giving any sort of explanation. TMZ reports:

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.

All right, here’s what confuses me here: back in the day, there were a lot of music videos featuring male rappers calling women “bitches” and being surrounded on all sides with girls wearing the FCC’s bare minimum of clothing. No one ever complained about that. If BET is actually banning the video over language and sexuality, which I doubt they are, I’d have to call sexism on this one. Why would it be okay for men to sexualize women, but women can’t sexualize themselves? All I’m saying is there’s probably another reason BET banned the video. I just don’t know what it is.
