GRAMMY PREZ ON CLOTHING COVER-UP
The Recording Academy's president says this year's great clothing cover-up kerfuffle was "much ado about nothing."
A memo from CBS surfaced earlier this week advising Grammy participants to avoid wearing see-through clothing and to make sure "buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered" during the show's broadcast.
"For some reason people thought this was something new or different or even foreboding as far as being restrictive," Neil Portnow said backstage after the show.
What was outlined in the memo was simply the standard the show has followed every year for at least a decade, he said.
What's more, he added, every TV network has to communicate its standards and practices to anyone appearing on its shows.
Jennifer Lopez and Kelly Rowland, who both wore only slightly revealing outfits, joked about the memo.
