MTV and Lady Gaga censured by Ofcom - 12-January-2010, 11:16

Written by Chris Forrester

An afternoon live concert with Lady Gaga from music channel MTV ("Isle of MTV") recorded last summer but transmitted at 4pm on Nov 2 has fallen foul of UK regulator Ofcom's broadcast code.
It seems a 30 minute set from the music festival featuring Lady Gaga used unsuitable language for a 4pm audience. According to Ofcom, Lady Gaga invited her enthusiastic audience to "put your hands up in the air and dance, you mother****ers"
MTV Networks Europe unreservedly apologised for the Snafu. The show was produced by MTV's Italian subsidiary, and MTV London staffers carefully removed any bad language ahead of the transmission but then sent the tape back to Milan for a few technical tweaks and somehow or other the coarse language crept back in.
There was just one formal complaint to the bad language. Ofcom found MTV in breach of its broadcasting code. There was no penalty.
