A wardrobe advisory from Grammy Awards broadcaster CBS has been circulated which expresses that stars must avoid nudity during the event.
American broadcaster CBS has issued a warning against wardrobe “obscenity” ahead of its airing of the Grammy Awards on Sunday. The warning, which came in the form of an email headed “Standard And Practice Wardrobe Advisory”, was published on Deadline.com. The advisory made clear that buttocks and “female breasts” – specifically the bare sides or “under curvature” – should be adequately covered, and made an intriguing reference to “puffy” bare skin that accompanies exposure of the genital region.
The Grammys are a notoriously fleshy event: pop star Pink trapeezed across the stage in a nude bodysuit during her 2010 performance; Jennifer Lopez wore a see-through Versace gown slashed to her hips; and Katy Perry teamed a pair of wings with an irridescent sheet in 2011.
Some, however, have covered up – in 2009 Lady Gaga arrived in a giant egg, and Cee-Lo Green also sported an avian look when he arrived covered head-to-toe in feathers at the 2011 awards. Last year, British singer Adele picked up six Grammys in a modest black dress.
Folk band Mumford and Sons, rock band Muse and Sir Paul McCartney are nominated for this year’s awards.
