The music world is gearing up for the Grammys, and apparently so is CBS. A memo from the network’s standards and practices, AKA the department that censors stuff went out to the reps of all “talent” that plans to be on the broadcast, and asks that they avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. As you may expect, the now infamous memo made its way to the web, and now we can share with you excerpts of what it says. Check it out below.
“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.”
“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.’
Pehaps they’re feeling the heat from when Joe Flacco said the F word on CBS during the Superbowl? We’ll do our best ot keep you posted on any new details in this vain. The 55th Annual Grammy Awards air this Sunday.
