MTV DID NOT BAN GAGA’S NEW VIDEO
In the wake of reports that surfaced over the weekend claiming that MTV had banned Lady Gaga’s nearly ten-minute long video for “Telephone,” a spokesperson for the channel has clarified the situation. She explained, "MTV did not ban Lady Gaga and Beyoncé's 'Telephone' video — in fact, we premiered it on Friday, March 12th, on-air and online at MTV.com, two days before this story was falsely reported. Fans can continue to catch the video as we repeat it on-air and online." The rumor appears to have begun with a segment that aired on CNN on Sunday in which reporters said that MTV had banned the clip. The "Telephone" video went live on MTV.com at 12:30 AM on Friday, an hour after it premiered on E!, and began airing on MTV that morning at 9:30 AM as part of the Lady Gaga Artist Collection, which ended with a full-length airing of the video. The clip has been viewed more than 14 million times on YouTube since its release late Thursday.
