Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” Video Banned by MTV (UPDATED)

Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” Video Banned by MTV (UPDATED)

MTV has deemed it inappropriate for its viewers to watch Lady Gaga’sTelephonevideo, so the music channel is banning the provocative and controversial mini movie-cum-music video. Other networks are expected to follow MTV’s lead, but the millions of people who have seen the video on YouTube do not seem to mind.

The controversial video has riled the sensitivities of some people for its raunchy content, which includes lesbian kissing and a lot of boobs, not to mention parental-advisory-worthy lines. The video has received over 14 million hits just three days since its debut. “Telephone” opens with a bra-less Lady Gaga being escorted to her jail cell by two bra-flashing guards, as female inmates salivate at the new jailbird.

Gaga is then stripped to her undies, prompting someone to quip: “I told you she didn’t have a d—.” Lady Gaga is rumored to have been born a hermaphrodite. The video also features Beyonce, who also shows a lot of skin, and is directed by Jonas Akerlund. “Telephone” is the second collaboration between Lady Gaga and Akerlund after their highly successful “Paparazzi.”

UPDATE:

MTV Executive Vice President of Music and Talent Amy Doyle explained on Monday that MTV  has not banned Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” video:

“MTV did not ban Lady Gaga and Beyoncé’s ‘Telephone’ video — in fact, we premiered it on Friday, March 12, on-air and online at MTV.com, two days before this story was falsely reported,” said Doyle. “Fans can continue to catch the video as we repeat it on-air and online.”
