    Blame Oscar the Grouch? Katy Perry's Sesame Street Stint a Big Bust

    Katy Perry's breasts are just too big for Sesame Street.

    Big Bird & Co. have bounced the sexy singer from their 'hood after a bunch of prudish parents emailed in their complaints about Perry's boobies upstaging Elmo in an upcoming episode.

    The trouble started earlier this week with the online release of Perry performing her hit "Hot N Cold" with the little red muppet. The YouTube clip was billed as a sneak peek of the venerable kiddie show's season premiere.

    Apparently some folks got a little too much peek.

    They went whining about Perry's supposedly too revealing lime-green bustline, forcing Sesame's makers to pull the segment from next Monday's episode.

    "In light of the feedback we've received on the Katy Perry music video which was released on YouTube only, we have decided we will not air the segment on the television broadcast of Sesame Street, which is aimed at preschoolers," Sesame Workshop said in a statement today. "Katy Perry fans will still be able to view the video on YouTube.

    "Sesame Street has a long history of working with celebrities across all genres, including athletes, actors, musicians and artists. Sesame Street has always been written on two levels, for the child and adult," the statement continued. "We use parodies and celebrity segments to interest adults in the show because we know that a child learns best when co-viewing with a parent or care-giver. We also value our viewer's opinions and particularly those of parents."

    Jeez, it's not like she was breast-feeding Elmo or anything (that job's reserved for fiancé Russell Brand).

    The original leaked video generated more than 1 million views was subsequently taken down, but it's since been reposted by Perry herself and a number of users.

    As rep for the "California Gurls" purveyor tells E! News: "Katy enjoyed working with Sesame Street, [Elmo puppeteer] Kevin Clash and playing dress up with Elmo. You can view all the fun at"

  2. I just saw this on yahoo. I don't think that dress was appropriate for a children's show. Any other show or concert fine but not for Sesame Street.
  3. I guess what I don't understand is, if it's such a big deal, then why didn't they ask her to change the dress when she filmed it? It's obviously not the first time they're seeing this and/or noticing it. They didn't think it was that big a deal until people started complaining about it (and why couldn't they "photoshop" a top portion of the dress?
  4. oh wow sesame street producers ... FAIL! They should've noticed that her boobs are 2mm away from falling outta that thing and made her change for pete's sake
  5. my 17 yr old son picked up on the "problem" right away
    my 4 yr old granddaughter just wants to keep watching it over and over again cuz she loves this song and Elmo!
  6. but the most of the muppets either dont wear pants or walk around naked.....SMH Double Standard!!!

    But Seriously, they couldve asked her to change before taping....guess we wont be seeing Gaga on sesame street anytime soon
  7. The wardrobe dept should've had her change! When I saw this, before they pulled it, I knew that dress was too low. But the song itself is so cute, too bad they won't digitally enhance it to make the dress appropriate so more kids can see it.
  8. I missed it.
  9. Am I the only one who doesn't see a big problem with it? Sure, it's a bit low cut but he outfit could def. be worse. I showed the video to my kids and they thought it was great! My 7 year old was dancing around yesterday evening and singing the song. Julia is playing on the floor and when I played the video again she started dancing, lol
  10. IMO it's too much boob for the show, but then again kids can see worse standing in line at the grocery.
  11. I totally agree.
  12. come on Katy. Sesame Street is not the type of show that you want to expose body parts. common sense
  13. producers were probably too busy oogling it when they were filming.
  14. my opinion -
    katy perry is pretty well endowed in that area and that dress actually doesn't show that... so i think it covers her up pretty well.
    a lot of her dresses i'm like :wtf: but not with that one.

    and on a news shows last night they made a good point - sesame street is for pre-schoolers... they're not going to notice.

    when i first heard that katy perry was going to be sesame street my actual first reaction was "katy perry is sesame street material??" but i didn't see an issue with her dress
  15. I don't see an issue either and I have two kids. What are you going to do not take your kids to the beach?
