Julianne Hough: 'Is That So Wrong' Banned from CMT?

Is Julianne Hough‘s video for “Is That So Wrong” too hot for TV?

In her new video, the 22-year-old entertainer rolls around on a bed and strips down to her bra and panties as she dances around her bedroom.

“Funny story,” Julianne said while performing the song in Boston last week. “I shot a music video for it… and CMT kind of banned it. Apparently I was taking off too many clothes as I was dancing around my bedroom. But I don’t know — I kind of liked it.”

However, CMT told Zap2It that the video was pulled because of pending contract negotiations, not the content. The network added that once the contract issues are resolved, the video will be put back in rotation.

DO YOU THINK Julianne’s new video is too sexy?

    This is ludicrous, the video is fine, there are raunchiest videos out there. Her dancing is enthralling btw.

  • anoano

    I liked her, she seems so sweet. But it’s a shame that she felt that she must go the skanky-blonde-ho-barely-dressed-overly sexed way, like so many other blondes with marginal talent. She likely felt that was the only way to get people to pay attention to her singing career.

  • Kaz simply amazing! Pretty!!!!!!!

    Yea yea complet strip off clothes.

  • s

    The video is fine. I’m surprised she is only 22, she looks much much older, around 35-37.

  • lyn

    There is nothing wrong with the video. There have been some videos with less and she is still clothed. She is wearing more than if she was wearing a swim suit.

    Want to be naked in front of everyone and is dancing want to be on tv

  • Butter_Fly


    Agree. I liked her so much. Now she’s just like the rest of ‘em.

  • Callie

    That gold dress she wears in the video reminds me of what Christina wore in The Voice Within.

    I consider those shorts, not panties.

    They feel her boobs giting bigeer bum

  • laverdadduele

    I’ve seen worse, but really what’s the point of stripping? Divert attention from an ok voice? Julianne is a very talented dancer, she should go back to it. I’m sick of these slutty videos!!!!! Less slutty and more good music!

  • brooke

    I cannot stand when people in the entertainment industry get recording contracts because of who they are and because they’re already famous. The majority of them cannot sing! She needs to stick to dancing.
    And this video is not even remotely sexy — it’s just plain slutty!

  • marq

    Simple enough to rectify: Everyone launch a fusillade of antitrust complaints focused on the need to break up Viacom, or at least demand divestiture.

  • new ditty

    I was kinda hoping for more. :’(

  • marq

    Now I better understand Rihanna’s problem, this artificial ceiling imposed on artistic expression in the corporate media, the real reason that so many performances fall flat.

    I am so sorry artists. Media concentration should never have been allowed to happen, you artists would otherwise have been allowed to flourish.

  • jdw

    This is nothing but a strip tease video. Not necessary. I cannot belive Julienne made this video. If she wanted to put some dancing in her video, she needs to keep her clothes on. Just totally degrading!!!!!! I thought Julienne was a sweet girl next door kind of girl. Who’s the next decent woman to make a video like this, Carrie Underwood? I hope to goodness not!!!!!

  • Judit

    i love her so much, she looks perfect, great personality, great voice and lyrics and she is the most amazing dancer. Nothing wrong w this video, i think its cute and quality sensual dancing :)))

  • jk

    I’m so tired of all these fake blondes with mediocre talent putting out the same slutty videos. Get creative people

  • gigi

    She can’t sing and the video is awful. It’s a shame she feels like she has to go the route of every other young blonde girl and exploit her body. Gross.

  • Svetlana

    Meh…she’s a really cute girl. I never really thought of her as ‘sexy.’ I mean honestly…that Honda in the beginning is a lot sexier than her. Plus, too much try. Which the hair grabbing and the seductive lip pouting. Just meh.

  • good-one

    <sarcasm> Oh I am so happy with watching just bland performances! I so love my Stockholm syndrome. Let’s please have another Bonfire of the Vanities, so that no one or nothing can be outstanding. </sarcasm>

  • Dubya Bush

    I was more offended by some of the weird faces she made as she was singing. lol

  • no-bounds
  • Gilmore

    This banned? With the Katy Perry, Rihanna and Lady Gaga’s of the world this is considered raunchy? Psh, whatever she’s a sweetheart I like her.

  • lealue21

    Is this what she left her career as a dancer for? So she can sing 3 or 4 word sentences over and over and over again. It should of been pulled because its a shitty song not because she took off her shirt.

  • Alice

    I’m sorry. I just can’t take this crap seriously. She’s a wonderful dancer – no question. But the video is absurd. Her dancing around her condo, doing backward somersaults on the couch, seductively rubbing her thighs and tossing her hair. I just could not take myself seriously if someone asked me to do that in a video. And I can’t take her seriously either – which is a shame because I think she’s very talented.

  • Sean

    CMT banned it because it’s a horrible song. Not because it was too explicit

  • marq

    @no-bounds: So that was supposed to be great art? ^.^ Whatever. Anyway, it was the F.C.C. that pushed this country into receivership, when their former chairman Michael K.Powell, delivered the airwaves into media consolidation as a payoff to his fat cat cronies.

    Now they are conspiring to do the same to the Internet, ostensibly under the rubric of “regulating it”.

    Didn’t any of you airheads watch “60 Minutes” and see that the states and municipalities are literally going bankrupt? Or that public infrastructure is being sold off to the corporations? Oh, well, just as long as some singer doesn’t sing and dance her heart out while in satin lingerie.

  • Sylvia

    I think this is a beautiful video and why is it banned anywhere??? I don’t understand this. However I feel Julianna is extremely talented and beautiful. I wish her all the best with her career.

  • Toni

    I personally found nothing wrong with the video since I do see worse on the tv everyday, but what I do have a problem with is why Julianne felt the need to degrade herself like all the other talentless artist today. I wish the women today can realize yes you can be sexy, but that doesn’t equal to taking your clothes off and gyrating or rolling on the the ground or bed. Women don’t have to wear little to nothing. Keep a little to the imagination and have people want to respect your artistry not how hot you are. I have no problem with it due to the oversexual videos out today. I miss the TLC or Aaliyah days where the women where dressed as tomboys but kept it sexy.

  • marq

    “What’s that did you say? The country’s been placed into receivership by the F.C.C.? And the states and municipalities are going bankrupt so they are selling themselves to the private corporations? And now the F.C.C. plans to transfer the Internet to private corporate ownership replete with censorship and taxation and require Internet drivers licenses?

    “But how else can we prevent audiences from seeing a great singer in her underwear singing her magnum opus?”

  • TJM

    Horrible song and she’s no Sarah Evans…….

  • dana

    Overkill! She could have got the same message across by being just a bit less suggestive.

    Wonder if she dates Ryan S for a career boost?

    I think she could give Carrie Underwood a run for her money if she cools it with the raunchy dances. If that’s her voice, she’ll do fine without stripping down. She’s a helluva dancer too! Somebody is giving her BAD advice!

  • janet

    Seems pretty tame compared to other country music videos!!

  • nyob

    I like the song.

    The video is not too sexy. If fact, it is not sexy at all. She is trying way too hard. The dancing is stupid and does not go with the song. The video probably should be banned for stupid, not sexy.

  • bubba

    looks and sounds like the CMT just wants to hear about a bottle of jack daniels, my old lady leaving him and sex with his dog. just beautiful

  • ex-car-racer

    what a s’k'ank, for a second i thought she was going to split in two from the crot’ch she looks so desperate for attention and for a d’ck. Maybe she misses Elio Casta’nova’s revolving d’ck and tongue.

  • sera

    The only thing julian is famous for now is for being Ryan Seacrest Toilet Seat.

  • ErikkaJay

    Uhmm, laura bell bunch is in a bath tub with only her core covered. Dont tell me Julianne is being to sexy. Check out the latest lil’ friken Wayne video if you wanna see to sexy. Her dancing is phenomenal and her body is amazing. love you Julianne hough !

  • marq

    No, The video is smart, it’s lovely. It’s probably banned because viewers are stupid. Viewers can’t or won’t defend the artists, Viewers are effete. Hopefully, you will all get a 60″ high definition big screen on which to watch your apparently preferred and much cherished bland.

  • Dennis

    What a croc. Such double standards from CMT. Trace Adkins has put out more risque videos with strippers none the less. CMT should be ashamed. BTW, Julianne is gorgeous.

  • ME

    This video has already been released months ago, and now they complain?? It’s tame compared to all the other garbage T&A videos.

  • shell

    Holy shit she’s gorgeous. I’m in love with her and Carrie Underwood.

  • Midtown Dogg

    If she had been dancing like that in a (insert Male Country singer or Band’s name) no one would have said a thing. Double standard is alive and well.

  • Epuni

    I like Julianne but this video is ridiculous. Her dancing around and taking her clothes off just doesn’t go along with the song at all. BAD choice in producing it.

  • Franko

    She’s to beautiful for Country. Love seeing her beauty. God made some wonderful looking woman and she is know doubt perfection….

  • Jokergurl

    Well CMT is not MTV, they’re a bit more touchy about the sexual stuff.
