Boobs and Buttocks Banned At Grammys
"Anyone fearing a wardrobe malfunction at Sunday's 55th Grammy Awards can rest assured that the folks at CBS are doing all they can to avoid such a calamity. Deadline Hollywood has leaked a memo from the network's standards and practices department, warning talent that gratuitous displays of flesh are to be avoided. USA TODAY has confirmed the authenticity of the memo, similar to those sent in previous years.
The advisory, sent to the production staff that deals with talent, advises them to 'be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered.' Specifically, 'thong-type costumes' and 'bare sides or under curvature of the breasts' are deemed 'problematic.' Visible buttock curves or 'buttock crack' are also a no-no, as is 'sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples.'"
CBS seems to be determined that the 55th Grammy Awards not be marred by a Janet Jackson type wardrobe malfunction.
The viewing audience may be severely disappointed; we've come to expect visible buttock curves, nip slips, and thong-style outfits from the likes of Beyonce, Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga.
The artists should protest this puritanical edict from the Grammys by performing in Nicki Minaj type satanic nun garb.
I can tolerate a wardrobe malfunction or two, what I can't abide is singers lip synching or no-talent artists rewarded with a Grammy award.
This new edict is patently unfair; do the Grammy executives expect Nicky Minaj, Lady Gaga and Beyonce to rely on talent? Please, all these bimbos have to sell are their body parts.
