Who’s Defining ‘X-Rated’ Here?

A report I saw from the AP this morning, presented nearly in full because it’s so short…

Lil’ Kim nearly had a big wardrobe malfunction on “Dancing With the Stars.”

This week’s front-runner on the ABC dance competition had some trouble with her top at the end of a jive with partner Derek Hough on Monday night. Host Tom Bergeron provided cover while the rapper adjusted as she and Hough approached the judges table.

Lil’ Kim told KABC-TV after the show: “I don’t know why this happens a lot of the time, but … the girls were tryin’ to come out.”

The nearly X-rated moment was edited out by the time the show was rebroadcast on the West Coast….

“Nearly X-rated?” For an almost wardrobe malfunction? Sorry, AP, but there’s more than a little bit of hyperbole there. Almost having a bit of accidental boobage is PG, maybe PG-13 if her top actually had fallen off (and even that used to be a good solid PG). “Nearly X-rated” would be something very, very different. Quit sensationalizing and just report.
