Just came on the TV, so I turned it up and rocked out (can you rock out to Down? idk) because nobody else is home. When it got to lil' Wayne's bit, though . . .

"She gets down *** for me . . ."

I kid you not, they censored out the word 'low'. W. TF. Yes, I get the connotations associated with the term, but still, what the hell?

It's like when they censored the word 'shirt' from MCR's Teenagers. Just because the lyrics talked about 'what you got under your shirt'. I mean, I get the picture there too, but the people they're worried about in these cases - kids etc - are more likely to notice and wonder about a word if it's missing than if it's there, amirite?

Jeez, TV is dumb. *plays 'uncensored' Down on iTunes*

    @Anica: Oops, mibad. How about we be optimistic and say 'That's one less word from Lil' Wayne that we have to listen to?'

    That probably won't work.

    @Blazi: Well, I won't deny it's daft, but at least I can see the reasoning behind it.
