This year’s Grammy Awards may come down in history as one of the most boring and less attended as many of the celebrities billed to grace the occasion are pulling out due to an email they received from CBS Network.
According to mail, titled: 55th GRAMMYS: Standard And Practice Wardrobe Advisory, the network advises all celebrities attending the event to adhere to a strict policy of decent dressing or else …..(fill in the blank).
Many of the celebs are said to be pulling out because of what they termed an affront to their sense of judgement as to what is decent to them or not.
Another school of thought accused the network of being discriminatory against women as the content of the mail specifically addressed women.
With this development, be sure the likes of Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Pink, Madonna, and others will be avoidably absent at the event.

Subject: 55th GRAMMYS: Standard And Practice Wardrobe Advisory
-kindly confirm receipt of s&p standards-
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.”
Let’s see how it all plays out on Sunday night.
