CBS Wants Celebs to Cover Up for the Grammys

CBS is looking to take all the fun out of the Grammys, be telling the stars they need to cover up.


The network sent and email to the celebs and it looks like they want to keep the skin off the screen.

Gawker points out that the email states "Thong type costumes are problematic," the email explains, in an observation most likely directed at Taylor Swift. "Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible ‘puffy' bare skin exposure."

Uncovered buttocks, "bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks," and exposed "buttock crack" are all banned; ditto uncovered "female breasts," and exposed "female breast nipples."

Here's the full email:

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.
