Veronicas “Take Me On The Floor” Video Controversy

The Veronicas video for their latest single “Take Me On the Floor” has caused a commotion! What’s all the fuss about? Well, there’s some footage of girls kissing girls. Apparently the sexy shots mean we’ll never see the clip on Video Hits and the like, who will instead screen a much tamer version.

I watched the clip expecting to see some real fireworks and was a little disappointed. Silhouetted girl on girl action is too hot for daytime TV? What bothers me here is the double standard. I saw much raunchier in the film clip for James Blunt’s “Goodbye My Lover,” but because he was a whiny male cavorting with a naked Mischa Barton that was all OK. And how is this more suggestive than Katy Perry singing her song all about kissing a girl?

Thankfully you’re online, so you can see the stuff those music video shows won’t show you. What do you think? Is it a lot of fuss over nothing, or does it deserve the ban?

    Hear hear. It amazes me that on the same weekend Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres can get married Australian TV can ban something which is really so tame!

    I agree. That’s just plain ridiculous. On live tv Britney and Madonna kissed, and it was considered “hot” lol. No one censored that. Bewildering, really.

    Most definitely. Not even Australian television censored that. Although the awards were screened late, whereas this has been banned on morning music vidoe shows. But what sort of message are we sending young children when we won’t allow them to see two women kiss? Is it any wonder that gay and lesbian teens feel so terrible about themselves?

    I acually wanted to see this video, but now i cant find it anywhere. People are totally not seeing what the veronicas are trying to do, they are not trying to make something its not. But its true why teen kids are having problems with their sexuality!
