The Grammy Awards have enforced a strict dress code to make the live broadcast more “family-friendly”.
Musicians have the most creative and daring outfits when it comes to walking the Red Carpet. Remember Jennifer Lopez’ booby baring dress, Pink’s nearly nude acrobatic costume, and Lil Kim’s ensemble in 1998? Well this year it appears that it will be toned down according to a memo that was released this week to attendees.
“Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered,” the statement reads. “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.”
In addition, the memo states that the genital region must be “adequately covered so that there is no visibly ‘puffy’ bare skin exposure” and “sheer, see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples,” is inappropriate.
What do you think of this decision to hold off on the skin for the Grammy Awards? My thoughts? Quite honestly, I’m all for freedom of artistic expression. I think if a woman can bare her full breast to breast feed in front of children in a public place, then what’s a little under the boob exposure on live television?
As far as the buttocks side of the memo. I think it’s respectable to keep it hidden, but hey, if you’ve got it, flaunt it. It’s not like little children don’t see this at their public pool or beach these days either.
Either way, it will be interesting to see who will be wearing what at the 2013 Grammy Awards tomorrow night. I can imagine that many artists are scurrying after this memo was released this week.
What do you think of the Grammy Awards’ dress code? How many think it’ll be a jeans and t-shirt night for the artists?
