Lady Gaga's Profanity Lands MTV In Hot Water

"Lady Gaga`s foul mouth has landed her in trouble with broadcasting watchdogs - bosses at MTV have been forced to apologise after one of the singer`s tirades was aired on TV.

The Poker Face hitmaker was on stage at the Isle of MTV music festival last year (09) when she peppered her performance with swear words.

The broadcast aired on MTV, which went out in the middle of the afternoon, but bosses failed to cut the offensive words and incurred the wrath of executives at broadcast regulator Ofcom." Read More

When a small child wants to grab the attention of his parents he will utter a swear word, knowing full well that it might result in a whack on the butt.

Lady Gaga is a talented and accomplished vocalist, she attended New York University`s Tisch School of the Arts. Lady Gaga is a gifted singer, and she doesn`t need to rely on gimmicks like auto tune, swearing on TV or dressing like a dyslectic drag queen on crack.

Lady Gaga is a servant of the Fame Monster, and she will do anything to garner headlines. Uttering profanity on TV doesn`t mean that Lady Gaga is cutting edge or avant garde, it means that in spite of her prestigious education the controversial entertainer is still a vulgar skank.

MTV is doing the right thing by apologizing on the behalf of Lady Gaga, but it`s incumbent on Lady Gaga to issue her own apology.
