Pitbull's 'Don't Stop the Party' Video Gets Banned on U.K. TV
Latino rapper Pitbull finds out that it is not possible to please everybody as his latest "Don't Stop the Party" music video failed to make its way onto British TV screens. The video was banned due to explicit and extremely graphic content.
According to reports, various complaints were thrown at the 31-year old's raunchy video as it featured an assemblage of almost-naked women on board a yacht with the rapper. Critics also cite loads of other malicious and suggestive contents such as heavy petting, simulated sexual acts, and a very upfront product placement for a vodka brand.
Though the David Rousseau-directed video from Mr. Worldwide was not necessarily fit for television consumption, British viewers are still able to watch the full video online in the U.K. as it was posted in the United States. The controversy might have also contributed to the clip's almost five million views on YouTube. The video was posted several days ago and was also allowed to air on Australian TV.
"Don't Stop the Party" is a single from Pitbull's seventh studio album "Global Warming". Other singles released earlier were "Back in Time" and "Get It Started", which was then dropped from the standard edition of the album due to poor chart performance. The 12-track LP is scheduled for an official release on November 19 and fans can pre-order it from the rapper's official website.
