CBS, a network still traumatized by the Janet Jackson/Justin Timberlake Super Bowl "Nipplegate" of 2004, has issued a release to talent and stylists about what is and is not appropriate attire for the Grammy Awards this Sunday. It's hilarious, mostly because of the language chosen to dance around certain body parts. They'd ideally like on-camera talent to avoid exposing the "bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack" as well as the genital region "so that there is no visible 'puffy' bare skin exposure." Major buzzkill, guys. [Racked N'tl]
