[ # ] MTV censors 30 Seconds to Mars
December 1st, 2010 under Jared Leto

30 Seconds to Mars shot a 13 minute music video for their song Hurricane and sent it to MTV. The music television network sent a letter back to them telling them why they can’t air it before certain hours on the network.
Jared Leto was not happy with their decision, so he posted what problems they had with it.

There is more and you can check it out his site to see what else they said.
I don’t know about you, but I didn’t know that MTV actually still aired music videos before 10p so is it really censored? Plus I think it is funny that they are censoring this when I have seen worse on The Hills and Jersey Shore and they air earlier in the day.
