Were you concerned that Nicki Minaj's performance at the MTV Video Music Awards wasn't racy enough??!
We definitely got enough booty and boobies, but it is now being reported that MTV very strategically filmed the performance to avoid outrage!
Since the backlash of Miley Cyrus' near-nekkid twerking, MTV let Nicki be as raunchy as she liked, but they made sure to keep the camera waist up.
And the results were parent-approved!!!
Melissa Henson, director of the Parents Television Council, said:
“It wasn’t as racy as we were anticipating. What we were expecting to see was what was in the video — a guy up on the stage and her performing lap dances. Her costume was less revealing during the VMAs than it was in the music video. The elements were there, but the most offensive content was edited out. Whether Nicki Minaj had anything to do with that or MTV or network standards and practices, I don’t know, but we were relieved to see that it wasn’t as bad as it might have been.”
Inneresting! Especially since MTV denied having any sort of conversation about censorship.
It would be a leeeeettle late for the network to be concerned with the Parents Television Council after all these years of R-rated content.
Either way, we loved Nicki and her anaconda!!!
