Nicki Minaj’s ‘Stupid Hoe’ Video Banned from BET

Nicki Minaj

Don’t expect to see Nicki Minaj’s video on BET. Her latest clip for “Stupid Hoe” has been banned from the network.

TMZ spoke with a rep for BET who confirmed that they would not be airing the video, but did not specify why. Other sources at the company tell TMZ that the ban was placed because the video was too explicit for TV.

The Hype Williams-directed clip, which features risqué lyrics and images, has received over 20 million views on VEVO since its premiere on January 20. Nicki debuted the video online to avoid being censored.

“Can’t premiere on a network b/c its important that my art is not tampered with, or compromised prior to you viewing it for the 1st time,” she explained.

The Young Money rap diva is not the first artist to be banned from BET. Ciara’s “Ride” video was deemed too steamy for television and Game’s “Red Nation” was blacklisted for gang affiliation.

What do you think of the ban on “Stupid Hoe”? Let us know.

    It’s only BET (…or in other words, EBT). Watch this other lady’s fans go insane… before you speak… where are HER videos? Oh. Let’s not get too excited.

    @SupremeBitch, As a huge Nicki and Kim fan I think its best “Stupid Hoe” isn’t on EBT (lool) because lets be honest its one of her whackest songs ever and will only make her bad. This gives her the chance to be seen as a better artist because of the “Turn me on video” being on EBT instead.

  14. Humz

    It wasn’t banned due to explicitness

    It was banned because it was absolute TRASH.

    There’s a fine line between abstract ideas and rubbish. This was the latter.

    I do not care what does or does not make it on BET. If you want to listen to a true female emcee search Google for: “LA Woman Zane One” When TV becomes the source for discovering music, instead of your friends, they gain control over what you hear and don’t hear. Turn off the TV and start sharing music with your friends.
