(Newser) – In what is sure to be a futile move, CBS is warning Grammys performers and presenters not to bare any breasts, buttocks, or genitalia while onscreen, reports Deadline. The network's Standard and Practice department sent out a "Wardrobe Advisory" in advance of Sunday's awards ceremony that includes quite a few unintentionally hilarious lines:

  • "Thong type costumes are problematic."
  • "Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack."
  • "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."

Deadline, which obtained a copy of the memo, notes that CBS is fighting a losing battle considering "nudity is the norm" at the Grammys. Perhaps the network is still reeling from its Super Bowl F-bomb...

Even "IF" it were possible to ban these wardrobe infractions, you know, one of these no talent low lifes will do some publicity catching stunt. Because pushing the limits is in their character. They really just have no class. It's the.....punk/thug.....generation. I've done plenty of this in my youth, but it's nothing to be admired for.
