Roots Drummer Must Clear Song Selections With NBC Post Michele Bachmann Incident!

| Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteSad SadJimmy FallonMichele Bachmann


Unfortunately, it seems that actions always have consequences - even if the initial action was effing HIGHlarious!

Roots drummer Questlove caused a bit of controversy for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon when he chose to play Fishbone's Lyin' Ass Bitch during Michele Bachmann's walk-on song, and apparently now, he's being forced to clear every song choice with three NBC executives!

Fallon explains:

"It was a real bummer. We don’t want to censor anyone, but … I don’t know. Maybe Questlove is a Romney guy."

However, this apparently isn't the first time Questlove has been censored! Fallon himself reportedly had to put the nix on him playing She Blinded Me With Science when Katie Holmes was a guest!

Ugh! No fun!

As far as we're concerned, Questlove has one helluva sense of humor, and we'd love to him to keep it up!

What do U think??

    What if this fool played FATBOTTOM GIRLS when hilary Clinton walked out, would your HYPOCRITIC ass be as unoffended as you are now?

    Love Late Night. Love ?QuestLove. That was a dumb thing to do to play that song. I think they are lucky to still be on the show.

    I'm surprised clearing it with the network wasn't already in place. Wonder if it cost them any sponsors of commercials. Would he play something as disrespectful about Herman Caen?? doubt it!

    Part of being in the public eye is having your public persona ridiculed…. your private persona should be left alone though, and there should be no photos or stories about the children of the people in the public eye.
