Katy Perry's Honkers

Too Hot for 'Sesame Street'

9/22/2010 8:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katy Perry's breasts -- and song -- have been yanked from "Sesame Street" ... after the show began receiving complaints like, "DUDE MY SON SAW THIS AND GOT A BONER WTTTTTTTTTF."

Katy Perry Sesame Street
Katy shot a segment for the show -- which was supposed to air on New Year's Eve -- in which she sings a cleaned-up version of her song, "Hot N Cold" with Elmo.

The song made its way to YouTube Monday and racked up nearly a million views.  But some parents started complaining her cleavage was too front and center.  We've learned producers have decided not to air the song on the show.

 Among the parental comments:

-- "You can practically see her t*ts. That's some wonderful children's programming."
-- "they're gonna have to rename it cleavage avenue"
-- "my kid wants milk now"

Fact is ... what looks like Katy's bare chest is actually covered in flesh-colored mesh that goes all the way to her neck.

First off, My 1 yr. old watched Elmo this morning out of the corner of her eye while breastfeeding. She likes breasts, they symbolize comfort and warm/yummy milk. My 3 children that are older than 1/less than 10 don't watch Sesame Street anyway because they prefer SpongeBob or something a little less babyish. So Sesame Street's "target audience" is not grossed out by seeing a bit of cleavage....or scandalized. The same adults criticizing Katy Perry are probably the same adults that vote on "who I'd rather" and make comments like "she's a whore" or "I would still bone her". Those things are much more sexist and offensive to me. Just another attempt to keep women covered up and inside or the opposite on poles/porn. I'm sick of our mysoginistic society. Men, grow a pair and get a job instead of trying to put women down so you don't have to compete with them.

Katy, honey, I know you're rebelling against your religious upbringing, but you're trying too hard. You ain't that hot, sweetheart, and you've got the most annoying voice known to man. Anytime your damn Proactiv commercial comes on, I must change the channel, rather than have my eardrums destroyed by your annoying squawk.

Nice to see that I'm not the only guy who doesn't find this woman to be the least bit attractive.

This has become a nation of complete babies. Can people please stop overreacting for no reason? Is that really asking too much?

If, in fact, her chest is covered in "flesh-colored mesh," it's still unacceptable, because it sure looks like skin...

Katy is wearing something a little girl would wear during 'dress-up'. I've seen many dresses for girls with the same mesh type neckline. It's nice that Seseme Street recognizes this and doesn't make a big deal about her breasts. There are mothers out there that wear much less. I'm not a fan of Katy, but I don't see any harm in this at all.

Katy looks completely adorable here. I cannot believe this would bother anyone. She looks like a cartoon and it's not like she's got much cleavage, it looks more like a ballerina costume. Who are these bitter old women protesting?! Sorry Katy, not everyone is like that.

Do these parents let their kids watch figure skating during the Winter Olympics?

Gimme a break.

I agree that it was the parents who noticed the boobs and not their kids, unless they have 12-year-olds and above still watching the show.

However, I also do think that the dress is inappropriate for a kids' show. Yes, it has a mesh fabric, but mesh is see through! But it's also in the person who wears it. Katy deliberately lowered her gown or at least wore a size that would really reveal the sides and top of her boobs. If that was worn a little higher or if it was Taylor Swift or any of the Disney girls (minus slutty Miley) wore that, it wouldn't have been that inappropriate.

Thank you Sesame Street for sparing the children the trauma of being subjected to Katy Perry's cleavage. Sesame Street has long been a mainstay of wholesome family programming that shares the moral values that families hold dear. A woman like Ms. Perry has absolutely no business on your program in the first place. She wears tiny things that pretend to be a bra, *********s with that vile Russell Brand and sings about kissing girls and LIKING it!

Please, Sesame Street, for the sake of our impressionable kids...just stick to something normal and Bert and Ernie.

I know this is highly controversial, but I let my 20 month old watch the tape on you tube. By some of the blurbs here, I expected her to scratch at her eyes, drop her mouth open in shock at slutty clothing or slap her hands over her ears. To my amazement, she smiled, pointed, said E'mo...Dancin' then wiggled side to side twice and hopped off my lap. I was shocked that NO emotional scarring at all occurred. Wierd!
