Grammy wardrobe memo: Do you think it will make a difference?

Posted by   + Show Post

So apparently, CBS wants Grammy attendees - specifically, female attendees - to tone down their wardrobe choices this year!

Quote:

Here are some of the highlights: Talent should, "avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack." What exactly is "fleshy under curves" and why does it sound so oddly hot? (And by frowning upon the showing of buttock cracks, does this mean that many of the union plumbers working at the Grammy venue may also have wardrobe problems?)

CBS wants attendees to avoid outfits that could "expose female breast nipples." And the network also put its foot down on clothes that expose the "bare sides" of breasts, aka, the famed and increasingly popular "sideboob."

What do you think about these guidelines? Will the stars comply? Or will they see this as a challenge to go MORE daring with their outfits? Is it a sexist move? Do you even care? :)

I think it's great that they did that, at least trying to slow down the inevitable moral decay. We don't watch it around here. Too disgusting for our Christian household.

I think you are going t see the female stars go to the extremes of both sides. Some are going to wear next to nothing and others are going to put on clothes that cover everything head to toe just to make a point.

If the Grammies are serious about this, then they'll have a whole gross of XXL plain white tshirts delivered and anyone, man or woman, who shows up dressed improperly, will have to wear one over their trashy gown.  Either that, or they should just send them home, ideally before any photographers spot them.

 Yeah, I won't be watching. I do think the comment about not wearing raw meat was hilarious ....good reply.....and I thought when Lady Gaga did that that I had seen everything. Barf. But I am sure something worse will happen some day since people,in general,  are going nuts.

I would like to see Sting,though....

 I don't. And its not "sexist". Gahhhhhhhh.

And if ,someday, people went nuts and were nude, I would sell my TV. Seems like there are no limits as to how stupid and immoral people are getting.

I think it is a network that is afraid of being fined by the FCC and hearing complaints from people. It is a privilage to go to the Grammys, not something that any regular Joe or Jane can go to. They should dress like it, not looking like street walkers. But that's just my opinion.

I wonder if it has to do with Beyonce and her gross-tastic Superbowl wardrobe performance... performance. http://www.examiner.com/slideshow/unflattering-beyonce-super-bowl-pictures-she-doesn-t-want-you-to-see#slide=58544496
