Those midriffs and minis need to stay home.
CBS is asking stars not to bare too much skin at the Grammy’s on Sunday.
The network is requesting that "buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered" for the televised award show. The memo sent out Wednesday also warned against "see-through clothing," exposure of "the genital region" and said that "thong type costumes are problematic."
In other words, no JLO-esque dresses with plunging necklines.
Representatives for CBS and the Recording Academy declined to comment on Thursday. Deadline Hollywood first reported on the memo.
CBS broadcast the infamous 2004 Super Bowl halftime show that included Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction." The network was initially fined by the Federal Communications Commission, though the fine was later overturned.
The 55th annual Grammy Awards will be held Sunday 8 p.m. EST at Los Angles' Staples Center.
Another major announcement was that Juanes will be the only Latin artist performing at the tribute concert for Bruce Springsteen on Friday night.
Juanes will also perform during Sunday’s ceremony.
"It will be a wonderful thing!" Neil Portnow, president of the Recording Academy, told the Associated Press.
"A few years ago we had to Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez in a segment singing in Spanish and English. When we do this, it is a positive thing, it shows our diversity and that music is a universal language."
The “Camisa Negra” singer is also up for a Grammy for best Latin pop album for his “MTV Unplugged Deluxe Edition” record, which was a collaboration with Dominican singer and songwriter Juan Luis Guerra.
