30 Seconds To Mars' Video Banned From TV
Jared Leto's latest 30 Seconds To Mars music video has been banned from TV after censors deemed it too explicit to broadcast.
The 20-minute promo for Hurricane, which Leto recently described as "a meditation on the violence of sex and the sex of violence," has caused a stir among TV executives in the U.S.
In a posting on his website JaredLeto.com on Sunday, the frontman listed a series of broadcasting issues he received from network bosses regarding sexually explicit bondage shots and violent fight scenes. And he revealed he's working on a "creative" editing solution to ensure the video can at least secure a "Post 10 PM" time slot.
Leto continues: "Here is one letter out of several we received about the inability for networks to broadcast HURRICANE as is. I am looking to find a creative solution that works for all."
However, guitarist Tomo Milicevic has vowed to make the clip available for fans to see online in its original, full-length format.
He tells RockAAA.com, "The internet is still restriction-free - the Hurricane film will be seen."
