US network CBS is asking stars not to bare too much skin at the Grammy Awards on Sunday.
The network requests that "buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered" for the televised award show.
The memo sent out on Wednesday also warned against "see-through clothing", exposure of "the genital region" and said that "thong type costumes are problematic".

Representatives for CBS and the Recording Academy declined to comment on Thursday. Deadline Hollywood
first reported the memo which includes requests such as:
"Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack."
"Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples."
and... "Thong type costumes are problematic."
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.
