First Lady of Young Money, Nicki Minaj, is building buzz for her sophomore album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. The video for the lead single, “Stupid Hoe,” is stirring up plenty of controversy by its lonesome. BET has banned the clip just a few days before Nicki’s Super Bowl performance with Madonna.
TMZ reported a rep for the network confirmed Minaj’s video was pulled from rotation. A reason for the action wasn’t given, however, many speculate it was snatched off the network due to the repetitive use of the word ‘hoe.’ Moreover, Nicki Minaj is seen dancing and writhing suggestively in a cage. Her dancing might have been deemed too racy for BET. This isn’t the first time BET banned a video. 2010 marked the year Ciara’s visual for “Ride” was pulled from rotation for being too sexual and sensual.
We’re sure Minaj isn’t sweating it. She is performing at the Superbowl with Madonna, working on the new Ice Age sequel, and looking forward to the Grammys.
