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.
Pink takes a spin in illusion netting in 2010.
They should speak only when directly spoken to and answers kept short to "yes" or "no" if possible a nod or head-shake.
Please do not initiate any inappropriate eye contact and as some are offended by dancing, keep perfectly still while on the CBS camera.
This will make it acceptable for all and insure no children be exposed to mental scarring.
Thank You CBS
I can say I am probably the first woman to admit it makes me down right uncomfortable to have to watch my husband and children seeing women running around in their bras, panties, or completely naked doing explicit sex scenes complete with fake (or not) orgasms, or wearing things that you can see through, nipples shining, boobs barely covered, or slits up to their hoohahs in their skirts and you find it in all the magazines, and almost all televeision and hollywood events. This is not appropriate for family viewing, and shame on Hollywood for losing its values. There is a time and place for everything and public television has gone completly out of hand with this "sex sells" crap. Thank you CBS and i wish other media would follow your lead, its about time somebody takes out the trash. I am so tired of hearing about wardrobe malfunctions and nip-slips and accidental hoohah flashing. If these ladies would dress like they have some class in the first place these things wouldnt happen.
Afraid that a child might see what?!?
I fail to see why people spend so much time worrying about someone showing too much skin; or god forbid . . . an actual nipple!
Whatever will we do?
Shame on CBS and those of you who are uncomfortable in you own skins.
Truth be told, by not making such a BIG deal about it all, many celebrities would most likely not go out of their way to show so much.
The ONLY problem(s) I see here are those people who seem to think they have a right to censor nature.
If you try to hide these things from your children, you are doing them harm which will eventually blow up in your face.
There is nothing wrong with the female (or male) body!
I'd like to ask them "Would your mother let you go out of the house like that?"
PUT SOME CLOTHES ON.
Besides, if I want to see a nudie or semi-nudie show, I'll go to Las Vegas.
OMG-Pink was covered up more than 90 percent of stage performers. You can clearly see her costume was all nude-colored fabric. Her rear-end was NOT showing!!! Only skin I see is from her calves down, her arms and her neck and face. Her torso is totally covered up. As for that pic of Christina--THAT'S a whole other story!!! And..have you seen Toni Braxton's white strips of cloth being called a 'dress'? Yikes!! Why did she even bother getting dressed??? LOL
