Nicki Minaj, Stupid Hoe Video

Cash Money Records Inc.

Nicki Minaj's devoted Barbz won't be able to see her "Stupid Hoe" music video on BET.

A rep for the network says they will not be airing the singer's sexed-up, racy new clip.

And just why not?

BET declined to offer a specific reason for its decision, but we're inclined to think it might have something to do with the explicit lyrics and risqué content.

The NSFW video—which features an F-bomb-dropping Minaj in a thong and a naked Barbie bottom, among other oddities—doesn't seem to be suffering because of the network's snub. It is getting airtime on MTV Jams and has racked up over 20 million views on Vevo since it debuted Jan. 20.

So why did "Stupid Hoe" premiere online and not on TV then?

"Can't premiere on a network b/c it's important that my art is not tampered with or compromised prior to you viewing it for the 1st time," Minaj tweeted.

Her highly anticipated album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, won't be out until April 3, but fans can tune into the Grammy Awards on Feb. 12 to see Minaj perform. 

Get that bleep button ready!
