Questlove censored over Michele Bachmann incident

You may remember that back in November, The Roots drummer Questlove caught some heat for his pick of an intro song, “Lyin’ Ass Bitch“, for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon guest Michele Bachmann.

Questlove ultimately apologized for his stunt, but NBC suits weren’t content to let him off with just an apology. From now on, Questlove will have to clear intro songs for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon guests with three different NBC executives before they can use it.

In an interview in Rollnig Stone magazine, Questlove says that he was woken up by a phone call at 9 a.m. the morning after and was summoned to 30 Rock where he was told that, from now on, he’ll have to clear each song. Not only that, but the executives barred him from tweeting about the “incident”.

“It was a real bummer. We don’t want to censor anyone, but . . . I don’t know. Maybe Questlove is a Romney guy,” Jimmy Fallon told Rolling Stone.
