The Grammys

Celebrities Warned ...

Keep Your Genitals Covered!

CBS doesn't want to see a SINGLE celebrity butt crack at the Grammys on Sunday ... and no boobs or genitals either ... this according to a warning the network fired off to all "talent" appearing on the show.

The email -- which surfaced online -- was sent by CBS Standards and Practices to people connected to the celebrities who are expected to appear on camera during the broadcast ... and the network makes it clear, it's not taking any chances with the FCC this year.

"Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered," the letter reads.

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

It goes on ... "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.'

But the most shocking part of the letter, CBS does not want talent to wear a lapel pin or any other accessory which contains the name of an organized cause "visibly spelled out."

So, a star can wear a pink ribbon ... as long as it doesn't say "The American Breast Cancer Foundation."

We reached out to CBS -- so far, no word back.

...Yep, and WHITE MEN are still shooting-up schools, molesting children, impregnating their own daughters, oh yea, and kidnapping five year old boys off school busses and holding them prisoners in underground bunkers.

Yep, you WHITE FOLKS must be so proud...Artofwar

...And ironically enough the biggest sl#ts in the nation are more than likely the females who just also happen to be the most frequent commentators of this particular gossip site...Artofwar

I think everyone should just show up naked. No hootchie slutty stuff, just au naturel. If people stopped constantly displaying themselves as whores maybe we could get over this whole the naked body is sinful attitude that people seem to have.

Seems many of the current 'celebrities' would be . . . nobodies if they had to rely on talent alone and not risque outfits / flashing people or constantly posting half nude photos on Twitter etc. Look at Rihanna / Kardashians etc . . . Seems these days it's all about narcissism rather then talent. Its a pitiful time in entertainment.

This is what you get when you have Beyonce in her panties busting her legs wide open and shaking her ass like a stripper at the Super Bowl for the kiddies!
