It’s true. CBS actually sent out an email to Grammy attendees warning them to cover up, and in some cases, shut up.

The letter, which outlines exactly what is and isn’t acceptable at this year’s 2013 awards show, warns against everything from bare bums and boobs to swear words, foreign swear words and political causes.

The reasons behind it all is no doubt due to numerous “wardrobe malfunctions” and slippery nipple effects that seem to have drawn the ire of network executives who are tired of stars trying to grab more than their fair share of the spotlight. See for yourself below:

CBS Email sent to Grammy attendees

Date: February 5, 2013, 10:39:56 PM EST
Subject: 55th GRAMMYS: Standard And Practice Wardrobe Advisory

-kindly confirm receipt of s&p standards-

***GRAMMYS 2013***

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.

Overall, the fashion faux pas seem to have gone away for now. But don’t dismay, there was still enough red carpet cleavage to go around, much to the delight of camera crews everywhere who were quick to snap a shot of the best assets on the red carpet.
