Nicki Minaj‘s “Stupid H*e” will not be getting any play on Black Entertainment Television (BET). Reportedly, the bootylicious Minaj has some pretty racy scenes in the video, and according to TMZ sources, the higher-ups at the station are not fans of such explicitness.
The video’s antics include Minaj in a thong gyrating in a cage, making any non-prude blush. The video’s lyrics are outright raunchy and the constant repetition of the phrase “stupid h*e” may be considered off-putting by some of the station’s viewers:
Ice my wrists-is, then I piss on b*tches,
You can suck my diznik, if you take this jizz-is,
You don’t like them disses, give my ass some kisses
Yeah they know what this is, givin’ this the business
BET has not released a statement explaining why they made the decision to not air Minaj’s video. Apparently, the station ban has not impacted the popularity of the video, because as of press time, there were 20,614,652 hits. Watch it here.
Minaj is not the first artist to have their video not air on the programming station. In 2010, BET didn’t air singer Ciara’s “Ride” video, which is chock-full of naughty hip-swiveling gyrations, because they asked her to edit the clip and never received a response. The Game’s 2011 “Red Nation” video also never received airplay on the station allegedly because of its portrayal of gang culture.
