Controversial, Really?

In NO way were the videos by Britney Spears, Nas, and D12 controversial except for the fact that the people involved needed attention. If those artists (although I doubt it's possible to use the terms "artist" and "Britney Spears" in the same sentence) were not popular in 2002, they would have never even been afterthoughts for your list. The videos by Prodigy, Madonna, NiN, etc. truly were controversial and were rightfully placed on the countdown. The singles by the first three singers/groups mentioned were simply there to attract more people to the show- something MTV is notorious for blatantly doing.

I just don't get why Britney Spears' "Baby One More Time" was put on there. She dresses like a hooch... big deal...

i dont c y britney spears was on this countdown. her 1st video is prolly the best video she's had yet. u should've put don't let me be the last to know. my mom even likes baby one more time and my mom thought that, that's prolly the least controversial video from all of her videos. baby one more time showed the girl in britney. she wasn't even showing nethin. o wow she showed her belly-big deal! u should've put don't let me be the last to know on your countdown not baby one more time.

Music videos are a visual representation of the artist\0xD5s viewpoint of the song. They visually depict the artists meaning behind the song. To edit these videos and cut out certain scenes that are so called inappropriate is like placing censor blocks in front of a nude painting or sculpture at an art museum. Some of these videos which are being called controversial are a modern form of an artistic masterpiece. Then again some of the videos which have been labeled controversial such as Britney Spears is unnecessary and uncalled for. I personally feel that there is nothing wrong with that video and that people are extremely overreacting towards a video such as this.

Hi! It was really interesting to see uncut versions of stuff I'd seen and some videos I've never seen. BUT the only video that seemed controversial to me was the Prodigy video! ...Really, most of those videos were no worse in context or suggestion than 98% of the Rap videos that we see every day on Mtv or Mtv2...or most of your reality shows...or spring break...or game shows...Maybe I'm just desensitized. I noticed, however, that you're still too scared to show Nine Inch Nails "Happiness In Slavery" video. Ha! Although maybe that should be catergorized under Most Disturbing. - Actually the whole long form version of Broken is disturbing. And I didn't see Slipknots "Spit it Out" on there either - and personally, I can't see why that was ever "banned" in the first place.
