In an effort cover their rear ends…err…clean up television for the good all of all hard working American families, CBS sent a memo to all Grammy attendees to cover up the old bits and pieces, so to speak. We talked about this earlier in the week, but in case you missed it (and haven’t turned on the TV all week), basically the network warned against exposure of the buttock and breast regions, the genital regions, and also cautioned against see-through clothing and “thong type costumes.”
OK, cool. Regardless of CBS’ true motivations, I don’t think it’s ever a bad thing to try to class it up a little bit. Of course, acts like Chris Brown are still signed on to perform at the event, and that paints the network in a bit of a hypocritical light…and Richard Marx thinks it’s high time somebody say so publicly.
On his Twitter account, Marx posted the following:
"Risque’ clothing banned at Grammys but guys who beat up women? Come ooonnn downnnnn…. #goodcallgrammys"
AWESOME! Well played, Mr. Marx.
And though I support him entirely in his remarks, I feel it still rings incomplete. I mean, what? Was Steve Winwood not available for comment?
