the two faces of mtv
MTV won't be airing the Foo Fighters' new video for their song "Low" because it is apparently too risque. The video features actor Jack Black and lead singer Dave Grohl prancing around in women's clothes, according to the website Launch.com.
In one scene, Black dons a curly black wig, pink bikini top and shorts, while Grohl is seen wearing a blonde wig and putting on lipstick.
"The video is not being played by MTV because of two controversial scenes," Launch.com reported yesterday, "one depicting the two dressed in drag spanking each other, and one in which Grohl and Black's legs are horizontal on the floor, intermingling with each other, implying a sex scene."
So, bitches, hos and Snoop smoking weed are all ok. Mariah Carey writhing around with herself is ok. Ass shaking, barely clothed females on spring break are ok. Jackass stunts and Tom Green's gross-out humor are ok. Videos by the underage sex fiend R. Kelly are ok. Britney getting down with reptiles is ok. Beavis and Butthead, Pearl Jam's Jeremy getting violent in a classroom, Marilyn Manson, ex-cons like Suge Knight, videos with guns, videos about war, songs about poppin' a cap in somebody's ass, Fred Durst talking up the nookie - these things are all ok.
Dave Grohl and Jack Black in drag, however, are not. Implied sex scenes and spanking?
Hasn't that all been done- and shown - by Madonna before?
