No Nudity at Grammys? No Need To Watch
The annual Grammy Awards will be on CBS this Sunday evening and there will be plenty of music stars, performances, and probably an occasional profanity, but one thing you WON'T see is female buttocks or breasts. At least if the network has anything to say about it.
Past years like Rhianna's appearance (above in 2011) Pink, Lady Gaga and others have left little to the imagination (or apparently too much imagination from those who have complained!) so CBS has sent out an e-mail to all performers and presenters for this weekend that not only will govern what they wear, but also buttons supporting personal causes and more!
Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered," the letter reads.
"Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack."
It goes on ... "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.'
Well they're just taking all the fun out of watching, aren't they.
What do you think? Have costumes gone too far? Should the broadcast be more 'family friendly'? Or is this censorship??
