Did CBS really think they were going to get away with telling the music industry and Hollywood elite what they can and cannot wear to the “Grammys”? a memo sent out to “Grammys” attendees expressly forbid the exposure of butts, boobs and anything else that should be covered up by underwear.
Of course, when you tell someone not to do something, it makes them want to do it even more. Stars like Deadmau5 toed the line by wearing a hat that read “Your Shit Bums Me Out”. Fiancée Kat Von D. quickly made him cover up the ‘S’ so that the hat read “Your Hit Bums Me Out”. “It was kind of forced” Deadmau5 jokingly told E!
Other stars took things a little further by baring their bodies. The memo that was released forbade “bare fleshy curves of the buttocks”, “bare sides or under curvature of the breasts” and “puffy bare skin” around genitals. I’m sorry, what? Frankly, I am shocked that more people didn’t take a bit of offense to this. The fact that the CBS memo is treating grown adults like untrustworthy promiscuous teenagers would be enough to goad anyone to break a few rules to prove a point.
Rihanna showed up on the red carpet wearing a sleek red nipple-revealing dress, Katy Perry wore a low-cut cleavage-bearing gown, and Jennifer Lopez sported a black dress that had a slit going all the way up to her crotch. When asked about it, she told Ryan Seacrest “They didn’t say anything about the leg! Did you read this memo?! It mentioned things that I don’t say around my house or my children. It’s crazy.”
Other offenders included D’Manti, Kelly Rowland, Kimbra, Ashanti and Skylar Grey. Not many men seemed to be affected by the ban, but their formal attire is a bit more restricted to begin with.
What do you think about the memo? Do you think any of the stars took it a little too far with their outfits?
