MTV has made their position on Lady Gaga and Beyonce’s new video for Telephone loud and clear: They don’t want any part of it.
The network that was once known for playing music videos regularly has said that Telephone is too provocative and thus, have banned it.
It’s not like the network plays much other than reality television programming anyways, so it’s really not a big loss. I guess they just wanted the publicity for saying no, even though they wouldn’t have played it anyways.
