Katy Perry Pokes Fun at ‘Sesame Street’ on ‘SNL’ (VIDEO)

Katy Perry busted out a funny response to her ban from Sesame Street on the season premiere of the NBC sketch comedy over the weekend.

With her Sesame appearance scrapped after parents complained about her cleavage-baring dress, musical guest Katy plunged even further into taboo territory, wearing a snug, low-cut Elmo t-shirt during a skit with Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph.

Katy played – who else? – Brooklyn teenager Maureen DeChico, who reads to teenagers at the local library despite her racy attire. Check her out here c/o NBC:

Katy also performed her ubiquitous “California Gurls,” but earned some jeers for the quality – or lack thereof – in her vocals. Judge for yourself here:

Katy’s guest-starring gigs won’t end with SNL and Sesame. Entertainment Weekly reports Miss Perry will appear as herself in a live-action Christmas-themed episode of The Simpsons that will feature Homer, Bart and company as puppets. Happy Holidays indeed!
