  • THE GRAMMYS: CBS Warns Artists About Side Boob & Butt Cracks

    Grammy3

    Following an f-bomb during the live Super Bowl broadcast, CBS cannot afford to risk another obscene moment at the Grammy Awards. The network’s legal department drafted a harshly worded memo detailing inappropriate attire. CBS declares side boob, female genitalia, and butt crack “unacceptable for broadcast.”

    Here’s the laundry list of body parts CBS has warned Grammyperformers and presenters to keep completely covered: “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.”

    The Angles:

    • Recent offenders have been Lady GagaJennifer Lopez, Pink, and Toni Braxton (pictured).
    • There's nothing about guys going shirtless while performing? Crotch-grabbing still allowed?
    • The broadcast is run on a delay so that offensive and foul language can be edited out.
    • Grammy attire is relatively tame as compared to what people wear to the MTV award shows.

  • American Idol Racist?

    Posted by Scott Hanson

    Four American Idol finalists are coming to the show's defense after nine black ex-contestants claimed Idol is racist.

    Nine black ex-contestants are said to be planning to sue producers, claiming they were publicly disqualified because they're African-American. Idol officially booted the contestants because of possible criminal backgrounds.

    But season 6 finalist Melinda Doolittle, who is black, tells TMZ, "In my experience on the show, the Idol team strives to champion everyone, regardless of race. However, each contestant is explicitly told that the withholding of information that may compromise the show or artist, can and will result in immediate disqualification."

    Season 4 finalist Vonzell Solomon, who is also black, adds, "I didn’t experience any [racial discrimination]... All of our contracts were clear about how the background checks worked and that we could be disqualified if we lied about our past."

    Season 10 finalist Casey Abrams says, "I don't know why they are biting the hand that fed them. Those guys beat thousands of people who wanted to be on TV. Idol is picky, but I'm not sure about racist."

    Season 5 winner Taylor Hicks adds, "American Idol is for everyone. All walks of life go through the show. Not once did I see the show discriminate towards anyone. It’s all about the votes."

    In 11 seasons, Idol has had three black winners -- Ruben StuddardFantasia Barrinoand Jordin Sparks.

    Posted by Scott Hanson

    While in Europe over the weekend, Taylor Swift scored a rare day off in Paris and shared it with a star from True Grit --and no, it wasn't with any of the leading men -- Matt DamonJosh Brolin or Jeff Bridges. Instead, Taylor had a girls’ day out with actress Hailee Steinfeld in the City of Lights Sunday, posing in front the Eiffel Tower and scoping out a carousel. Taylor tweeted, “Had the best day off in Paris, meandering around, laughing hysterically with @haileestenfield.” Hailee is best known for her role as Mattie Rose in the 2010 film.
