CBS Wardrobe Advisory
So CBS sent graphic instructions around to attendees (and/or their agents) with regard to dress-code for the Grammy Awards live broadcast on Sunday coming.
Could I have gotten through the day without the mention of “buttock crack” – I doubt it. And the “genital region’ having ‘no visible “puffy” bare skin exposure’ – now they’re just turning me on.
I am also delighted for an alternative to ‘side-boob’, “Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts” – it’s a mouthful but I fairly certain that approx 50% of adults have no problem with that.
So basically Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and an army of Kardashian-alikes are f*cked, and in crisis talks with their gays as we speak.
Here’s the memo as reported by Deadline:

Subject: 55th GRAMMYS: Standard And Practice Wardrobe Advisory
-kindly confirm receipt of s&p standards-
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.
