Katy Perry Responds to 'Sesame Street' Outrage

Katy Perry Responds to 'Sesame Street' Outrage-photo

Katy Perry isn't going to let Sesame Street keep her (or her cleavage) from singing with Elmo.

The "California Gurls" songbird caused an outrage when she filmed a skit with Elmo while wearing a fairly revealing top. After parents complained about Katy's skin, Sesame Street was forced to pull the skit. Luckily for Katy fans, she isn't going to let a little setback like this keep her from dancing with Elmo.

"Wow, looks like my play date with Elmo has been cut short," tweeted Katy, "If you still wanna play see it at katyperry.com, tag you're it, Elmo!"

Watch the contraband video below.

Meanwhile, Katy's fiance, Russell Brand, found some humor in the situation. "Today's Sesame Street will NOT be brought to you by the number 34 or the letter D," tweeted Russell, referring to Katy's bra size.

    Her dress is fine! They wouldn't complain if it was Taylor Swift. How about focusing those complaints on something far worse, like children's beauty pageants.

    Dear Sesame Street Friends, It is so Sad that Elmo and our kids cannot play with Katy Perry! But fortunately Elmo and our kids can still play with Disney Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus who still Can't Be Tamed!

    Couldn't agree more M. She has her boobs hanging out everywhere she goes, we get it Katy you have little talent and giant tits. Put the damn things away on Sesame Street. Tons of talent people have been on Sesame Street and most of them remembered to leave their ego at the door, (Richard Pryor pretty much snorted his body weight before he was on.)

    I think pulling the skit is a bit outrageous. I mean, when Saudi Arabia didn't like Katy's outfit on her album cover, they just colored on it with red Sharpie. Surely they can do the same? As for the skit itself, is was kind of cute...but she had to sing...

    Um, why does she need to show her boobs on a kids show anyways? That's just tacky. It's not that difficult to put on a damn shirt for a freaking KIDS show. Do we have to sell sex SO MUCH that we have to slap it on our childrens shows?? C'mon people. The woman is obsessed with showing everyone her breasts. Just look at any recent picture of her. When are her breasts NOT showing?? I'm sick of this bitch. You must be one of the stay at home moms that autumnjade is talking about.

    @M... exactly HOW is a woman the size of Katy Perry supposed to hide boobs the size of a small Volkswagon?If she were wearing a friggin' burka, they would still be obvious! Grow up and get over it, already.

    WTF is wrong with THAT outfit? You know your children see more boobs when you make them go to the grocery store. I bet the "real outrage" came from the sad stay at home moms, with dried up sad boobies and no husband to bitch at. I totally agree

    Kudos to Katy & Russell for being classy enough not to trash the decision of Sesame Street!

    First of all they let rappers, and people like Jack Black on that show. He sings about C""K push-ups!( which is hilarious) but give me a break! If any of the kids who watch that show watch so you think you can dance, or American Idol...they have seen way worse than a little cleavage.

    whats so bad about cleavage? a little bit of tits is always good for the kids. i mean, it keeps the babies happy, right?

    Because of this fascist usage of censorship against my future-wife (Katy Perry), I will never let my future children (from other baby momma's) watch Sesame Street. I will raise them solely on the educational lessons learned from Jersey Shore, Jon & Kate Plus 8, and Dog the Bounty Hunter.
