The Television network CBS has urged stars not too reveal too much flesh while attending this year’s Grammy Awards. A leaked memo emanating from CBS’s Standards and Practices department distributed to guests warned:
“Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered… Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack. Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic. Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples. Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible ‘puffy’ bare skin exposure.
If you clearly recall, CBS was fined $550,000 after Janet Jackson exposed her breast during the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show. The penalty was later overturned.
The 55th Annual Grammy Awards are live Sunday, Feb. 10, at 8 p.m. EST on CBS. Scheduled presenters include Beyonce, Faith Hill, Carly Rae Jepsen, Katy Perry and Ellen DeGeneres. Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson, Rihanna and Carrie Underwood are slated to perform.
This may be a not-so-good news to some unmentionable stars, as well as some of the prying public who eagerly wait to see those “AHA” moments.
