Kanye West’s “Monster” Video Was Not Banned By MTV

Contrary to reports that MTV had banned Kanye West’s “Monster” video because of protests from women’s groups, no such thing has happened. “MTV has not banned Kaye West’s ‘Monster’ video,” a rep for the network said in a statement. “We have been in constant communication with the label regarding this matter. However, we are still awaiting the edits we requested in order for the video to be suitable for broadcast.” And we are still waiting to see the complete video already — it’s been nearly three months since the unfinished version hit the web. Since when does Yeezy back away from his “art” just because other people find it offensive? [MTV]
