The Grammy Awards broadcaster, CBS, is apparently on a mission to prevent any nipple slips, bum flashes or strange wardrobe choices at this year’s ceremony. A ‘wardrobe advisory’ memo was recently leaked, suggesting that the music industry should ‘avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples’ and that they should ensure that ‘the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible bare skin exposure.’
