Anderson and pole dancing proved too hot for NBC, which dropped a number featuring the actress in a sexy big-screen video from an Elton John special
NBC consider Pamela Anderson's pole dance as too hot and thus they come to the decision to censor the part from Elton John's television special, "Elton John: The Red Piano," aired on Monday night Dec 12. The variety show originally showcases a performance of John's "The Bitch is Back," during which Pam engaged in a bit of pole dancing on a screen behind him.
Apparently, the actress moving suggestively around a dance pole in the number has drawn critics from NBC's standards and practices department, the network's in-house censorship body who obviously give two thumbs down for her. In a statement released on Tuesday, the company said, "We believed the content was not appropriate for [the 8:00 p.m. time slot] and decided to pull the song from the special."
