*The video for Nicki Minaj’s new single “Stupid Hoe” has been banned from BET, according to TMZ.
The website spoke to a rep at the network and although they have not confirmed exactly what it is about the video that brought the ban, they are reported to have said that the video is “just too explicit for TV.”
The song’s chorus has Minaj repeating, “You a stupid hoe, you a you a stupid hoe” and has her dressed in a variety of wigs and outfits, sporting bright, pastel colored makeup and occasionally, digitally-enlarged eyes.
The video also makes mention of the fact that Minaj will be appearing live at this weekend’s Super Bowl. The artist is scheduled to perform her single with headliner Madonna and M.I.A.
Today, the Daily Mail also reported that Nicki Minaj may be on Simon Cowell’s list of potential “X Factor” judges, as well as Katy Perry and Mariah Carey.
