Katy has her way of saying FU to the new dress code. Personally I don't see her dress as a violation at all. She looked gorgeous in that dress. JLo and Kelly Rowland wore more revealing outfits and Alicia Keys displayed the bottom of her boobs which according to CBS's dress code is "problematic". CBS are a bunch of prudes these days. I'm surprised they allowed Beyonce's outfit at her Superbowl performance the way those guys think.
Ya you could kind of tell with that dress that she was trying to push the boundaries in protest of the prudish dress code. I mean the dress code said no showing too much ass or bathing style costumes which by wearing a long dress she was OK. As far as boobs, they said no side or bottom boob and no nipple showing but it said nothing about cleavage. which you could tell is how she got around it. As far as Beyonce's outfit at her Superbowl performance, I think is one of the reasons this plus past Grammy outfits is the reason this dress code came about.
I find it offensive and a bit low to talk about other artists like that just because Katy did not win. If people said that about Katy then all hell would break loose, so please do not do this.
I totally agree, I think is crazy how much people are ragging on Adele. I mean I think it's a little weird she was nominated for a live version of a two year old song. But even though her music isn't totally my thing there is no denying she has a damn good voice and deserves to win as much as anyone else. Further more she's of a more classic style( not electronic tune) to her music. Which the Grammy judges might see as more pure than today's modern pop like Katy and Carly Rae. That being said I think they're out of touch and have been for years.
