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.'

Boobs -- Best Part Of Grammys 

  • Yes
  • No
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.

I think it is a damn shame these celebs have to be told to cover their azzes and dress decently. You can be sexy and cover your azz at the same time!

America has to get over its prudish puritanical ways. We will all have a good laugh 10 to 20 years from now, how we believed in all this religious voodoo and rules, just like we laugh at a flat Earth now. People were put to death for saying it was round. Now we have priests molesting children. Religion was created by man and the nonsense can be stopped by man.

CBS good luck with that. Several who attend the Grammys will look upon this as a personal challenge.

Now they have a problem: Rihanna et all. "talents" are actual their genital regions. Without showing them, even dumb people might realize that their beloved idols have no musical talent whatsoever...

That's a clear invitation to do exactly the opposite for some "artists". Just wait for it. You'll see...
