Katy Perry Too Sexy for ‘Sesame Street’

Katy Perry is getting kicked off Sesame Street! 

TMZ reports that cleavage-baring Katy’s performance of ‘Hot N Cold’ will be cut from the New Year’s Eve broadcast due to backlash from parents who found it too hot for children’s television. Among their complaints? Katy’s low-cut dress detracted from her revamped rendition of ‘Hot N Cold,’ which was directed at Elmo.

“They’re going to have to rename it cleavage avenue,” one parent reportedly said.

TMZ also points out that Katy’s dress is something of an optical illusion. While it seems she’s wearing a flesh-baring spaghtetti-strap number, Katy’s frock is technically high-necked, her cleavage “covered” with sheer nude fabric. Had all that see-through material been filled in, we’d be ringing in the New Year singing the ABC’s with Katy!

Hey, at least Russell Brand probably liked it.
