Despite recent rumors, the highly controversial video for one of Kanye West‘s newer singles, “Monster”, has, in fact, NOT been banned from MTV. The network is simply waiting for the requested edits from the clip so that it can be suitable for television.
MTV specifically responded to the rumors this week by stating:
“MTV has not banned Kanye West’s ‘Monster’ video. We have been in constant communication with the label regarding this matter. However, we are still awaiting the edits we requested in order for the video to be suitable for broadcast.”
The video, which features appearances from fellow rappers Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, and Jay-Z caught many off-guard as it was very racy and a bit gruesome. West, along with the other artists, rap along side women who are supposed to be dead and several corpses laying around.
Hmmmm……Does this mean that Lady Gaga’s video for “Born This Way” needs to be edited? I think so!
