An eagle-eared MTV viewer writes in to inform us: “From the people that brought you ‘Me and Warren G about to make some bodies turn [bleep]‘: New Maroon 5 video for “Wake Up Call” on MTV2 has the phrase ‘I had to shoot him dead’ FOUR TIMES unbleeped. And a gun! in the video!” We wonder if the MTV2 version is this “Director’s Cut,” where Mr. Levine blows a man away–Just to watch him die? No, because he was schtupping his lyin’ video girlfriend–and then bags up the body and then tosses the body off a bridge. (We lost track of the number of bethonged behinds and boobs jiggling in slo-mo.) Plus the F-word! Even if MTV did censor Levine’s more murderous impulses, 50 Cent must be pissed.
