CBS would like Grammy attendees to cover up their 'female breast nipples'
Plus, no thongs, underboob or 'puffy' genital regions
If CBS has anything to say about it, there won't be any cheeky displays or mammary mishegas at Sunday's Grammy Awards. The network has sent out a "wardrobe advisory" to representatives of everyone from Katy Perry to Rihanna reminding them to ensure "buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered" during the broadcast (male breasts are apparently just fine).
The pearl-clutchers at CBS are particularly concerned about the boob region, especially "bare sides or under curvature," which they deem "problematic." There's also a warning about the "visible puffy bare skin exposure" in the "genital region," which may or may not be a fancy way of saying "no camel toe, please."
Here's the memo in all its glory, along with a few outfits from Grammys past that would surely cause a few conniptions …
CBS Program Practices advises that all talent appearing on camera please adhere to Network policy concerning wardrobe.
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.
Please avoid commercial identification of actual brand name products on T-shirts. Foreign language on wardrobe will need to be cleared. OBSCENITY OR PARTIALLY SEEN OBSCENITY ON WARDROBE IS UNACCEPTABLE FOR BROADCAST. This as well, pertains to audience members that appear on camera. Finally, The Network requests that any organized cause visibly spelled out on talent's wardrobe be avoided. This would include lapel pins or any other form of accessory.

I like seeing a nude woman as much as the next guy, but there is a time and place for everything. Being seen by millions of people in a public media forum is not the place for people to impose their desire to "show off" parts of their bodies that are considered by most as inappropriate. This event is watched by children and there are adults that are offended by people doing this as well. If these people want to wear dresses with their breasts hanging out or pants so tight that they show camel toes, they can do that at the parties afterward. At the event itself, they should have more respect for themselves and their fans.
It has everything to do with class, which most performers don't seem to have these days. I'm only 34, but I've watched a lot of the older films and when I think class, I think about Ginger Rogers. Loved the gowns she wore, so beautiful and elegant. A lot of today's women just don't have much in the elegance department. Everything has become a sex sells attitude, well, sex has always sold. How about a slutty attitude :)
Why do all the piglets, i mean 'STARS" think they need to show body parts. Who gives a s- - - ? The golden age of movies and other entertainment is long gone. Just a group of classless slobs that somehow got to the big time ! Not all of course but the majority think they have something to expose and they can get on youtube for the next year !
