The Grammy’s is always full of controversies, clowns and ridiculous so-called artists trying to get your attention for just 10 seconds. This year CBS has written a memo about the types of clothing that artists should wear for the broadcast. The complete memo entitles:
“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.”
After all these years of “freedom” by broadcasting the worst in entertainment by posting nudity, bleeped words and extreme sex, CBS is starting the trend of controlling what it should be broadcasting to the public. After all, CBS started the infamous wardrobe malfunction during the Super Bowl years ago and it’s trying to finish it in not so good terms.
But what it doesn’t grasp my mind is the concept that music should be pure, simple and honest. And frankly all these so-called artists lacked. A lot! First of all, the music industry is full of beauty faces who can’t sing a tune without voice enhancing software, relying on lip-synching and dumb ass people who doesn’t know the difference between who’s singing for real or not. After Milli Vanilli scandal, still doesn’t learn that cheating doesn’t pay. What happen to originality? What happens to real musicians that have sacrifice everything to get this far and then what? Turn into dust because they can’t fit their image.
It’s a shame that after the music industry bashed Rob and Fab with no mercy to the point that Rob committed suicide, decades later now lip-synching, voice enhancing/correcting software has become the norm while real artists and musicians literally became the housekeepers of music, instead of leaving a positive mark.
