Stars are being asked not to bare too much skin at the Grammy Awards on Sunday, according to reports.

America's CBS network is reportedly requesting that "buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered" for the televised award show, which will include performances from the likes of Rihanna, Alicia Keys and Taylor Swift.

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.

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 on Sunday February 10 at LA's Staples Centre.

Your forceful personality makes people sit up and take notice of you. This is a great time to show off your expert knowledge. Demonstrating a command for facts and figures will result in a teaching or media position. Make sure you don't impose this air of authority at home. Your family won't appreciate being ordered around. You may be a superstar in intellectual circles, but you're just another relative on the domestic front. Don't bristle at your loved ones' irreverence. It's good for your ego.More
