During the weekend, reports came out that claimed Kanye's Monster video was banned by mtv for obscene images but the network has came forward to set the record straight.
The video was submitted to MTV, but it wasn't banned; rather, edits were requested based on the channel's decency standards. "MTV has not banned Kanye West's 'Monster' video," the network said in a statement to MTV News. "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." (MTV)
