Who would have thought the 55th Annual Grammy Awards would have a strict dress code?

With award show season in full swing, the Grammys is supposed to be the fun show. At the Grammys it is acceptable for stars to let loose. It’s not like at the Oscars where the atmosphere is a little stuffier.

This year, though, musicians might need to re-think their wardrobe. CBS Standard and Practice is instilling a strict no boobs, no butts policy.

This is the email that went out by the S&P department via Deadline:

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.

Got that, ladies? No thongs.

CBS is taking this situation seriously. They’re not even allowing foreign language on clothes unless it’s been cleared.

Our strict, private high school was more fun than the Grammys. What can we say, c’est la vie – that’s ‘such is life’ for you, CBS.
