American rapper Sean Kingston’s song ‘Beautiful Girl’ is about a girl so beautiful that he is afraid that their relation will never work: “You’ll have me suicidal, suicidal – When you say it’s over.” But on the MTV show ‘Total Request Live’, Sean Kingston’s summer hit is less dramatic since ‘suicidal’ is left out in the chorus.
MTV also informed the Daily News that they don’t have a list of words that are automatically censored. Instead, the lyrics are studied contextually to avoid racial epithets, obscene language, illegal or violent behavior.
