Nicki Minaj reportedly wanted MTV to film her VMA appearance in a way that would earn it a TV-MA rating. The network shot instead for a TV-14 which clearly excludes the massively spread labia Nicki had planned in order to be this year’s Miley. MTV focused on Minaj’s upper body while she had her legs up in a birthing position for no apparent reason. The performance was so tame it didn’t even turn heads at the Parents Television Council, an organization which exists solely to be offended:
“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.”
Its a sad day when you desperately want to come off as provocative and the old cronies from Footloose yawn in your face. Minaj should start performing with a dildo in her stink, pink, and maw to really make sure the cameras have nowhere to go but sexualized content. There’s no reason why the VMAs can’t serve as the proper forum to talk to your kids about where rapper bastard babies come from.
