MTV Denies Banning Lady GaGa's 'Telephone' Music Video


MTV Denies Banning Lady GaGa's 'Telephone' Music Video


Calling the report 'false', MTV executive says the video which features nudity and lesbian kiss has been airing on the network.

An executive at MTV has denied the network has banned Lady GaGa and Beyonce Knowles' racy new video for "Telephone". The nine-and-a-half minute long promo has caused a stir online, attracting more than 12 million viewers in the three days after it debuted on YouTube.com.

The video shows the "Poker Face" hitmaker being taken into a women-only prison, where she is abused by inmates and stripped naked by two female guards. GaGa even refers to rumors she has both male and female sex organs - by pixelating her genitalia in the raunchy footage.

It was reported by CNN.com that bosses at MTV had decided to ban the video because of concerns over its sexual content, as they did with the promo for Madonna's 1990 hit "Justify My Love". However, MTV's manager of programming, Tuma Basa, has hit back at the reports.

In a post on his Twitter.com page, he writes, "The reports are false... the video's been airing since Friday morning on AMTV."
