Nearly two weeks ago, Nicki Minaj gave fans a first taste off her upcoming sophomore album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, in the form of the music video for her single “Stupid Hoe.”
From what we’ve seen and read, it hasn’t received the best reviews … and the bad news doesn’t end there.
According to TMZ, BET is refusing to air the new clip, banning it all together. BET has yet to release a statement explaining why the video has been banned, but sources say it is just too explicit for TV.
Maybe it’s the lyrics? Or maybe just the sexual visuals. Not only does Nicki appear in a thong, but throughout the video there are several nearly naked female figures.
Despite the BET ban, Nicki said — via Twitter — that “Stupid Hoe” is airing on MTV Jams.
She has yet to comment on the BET ban, but she may not care. When initially releasing the clip, Nicki chose to debut it online because “its important that my art is not tampered with, or compromised”.
While there may be an edit for it in the future, Nicki wanted her fans to see it the why she intended the first time around.
Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded is due out April 3.
