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.

You can't blame the producers of sesame street. Katy should have said no way to that out fit, give me more coverage. These so called rolemodels now a days are a disgrace. They dress inappropriately and sing inappropriately. And parents wonder why kids are having sex sooner, getting pregnant ,and getting plastic surgery at young ages. Look at the stupid rolemodels they have. Even stupider thing about it they get paid big, for what being a hoe. If she wants to show them be a pornstar. Thats the only show alot of these famous women should be on, cause they can't act or sing.She should be ashamed of herself.

There is way more to shield kids from in the comments on this article, then anything Katy Parry did or wore. The venomous comments filled with hatred for Katy and Russell, the narrow minded views, the puritanical BS, the unhealthy position on the human body let alone sexuality. All you that find this dress and performance offensive should consider moving to the middle east, or make sure that you wear a burka in front of kids. Katy was wearing nothing that you would not see brides maids wear at a wedding all across this country ... yes one that kids attend. You see a way more inappropriate display of disgusting bodies that should be in a burka, displayed spilling out of small tight bathing suites at beaches ... yes beaches that kids are running all over. However as soon as this is a threat to some insecure person, then you want to cast moral judgements and disparage someone like Katy. Shame on sesame street for being bullied into this position. Shame on them for making Katy feel like she dressed or acted inappropriately, and shame on those of you for not having a healthy open view on bare skin.
Why don't you look deeply into your reasons for protest. I bet they have little to do with Katy at all, and more to do with your puritanical upbringing, your self esteem issues, and yes ... jealousy. I sure hope none of you are teaching our kids ... god forbid.

For the record, you have very unhealthy views on skin and sexuality. All women have breasts, different sizes and shapes. Those that have a bit more than most should not feel ashamed of it, and should not feel that cleavage is inappropriate of kids. I sure hope none of you are teaching our children ... god forbid.

Comment 436 continued .... And for the record ... Miss Piggy has shown way more cleavage in her tight form fitting dresses than anything Katy wore ... where were you protests then? ... Seems a little more of a personal attack on Katy than an issue with what she wore ... so why not be honest with yourselves ... Y'all should catch the next "mayflower" to the middle east. Let me know ... I'll arrange it.

Sooooo, since Katy's outfit is no big deal, I guess many of you would be cool with your childrens' teachers dressing the way she did in the video at school? They are both huge influences on children. Would you want your childrens' teachers prancing around the classroom dressed like that like that on a daily basis. Doubt it. I'm just say'in.

Val,
it is unlikely that a teacher would wear a prom dress on a daily basis, but if it were a school play, or some form of entertainment, yes ... I would not be freaking out if pretty woman showed some cleavage or some leg ... no big deal. No one is going to get corrupted, no one is going to die, and there is no violence ... something which is damaging to kids, but no one cares about. Have a look at the video again Val, there is nothing to get all upset about. I guess your kids dont go to the beach, or weddings, or the movies for that matter. What is so offensive to you? .... I'm just asking!

Katy Perry is hot. She's got a great looking body and perfect 5'7" height. Not too skinny, not too fat. Nice face. Good personality. Good sense of humor.

She's staying out of trouble with the law. No embarrassing episodes with the paparazzi yet. She's a good interview on TV. What more could you ask for?

She's got some good music on YouTube. Her music is better than Lady Gaga's stuff. She seems like a real musician instead of one of those manufactured pop starlets. Keep coming up with good quality music Katy and you could be the next Madonna. No exaggeration.

DJA,
Actually I'm not upset at all about this, & Katy's Sesame Street video is not really that offensive to me. I just think kids need time to be kids. They don't need to grow up so quickly. Young children don't need to bombarded w/ these images constantly. You are right, it is highly unlikely a teacher would dress like Katy did in the video at school. However, if one tried to there would be some Hell raising going on by concerned parents & rightfully so. If you would like to read some, plenty of do***ented research is available that proves children ARE influenced by things they view, & I see it every day in my profession. You are right again DJA, my kids don't go to the beach, weddings, or the movies. I don't have any children. Just 25 students in my class who somethimes call me mommmy or mama by accident. This is my 18th year teaching very young children for the public school system. Oh yes, just one more thing, please don't lump me into that group you say doesn't care about corruption, death , & violence damaging today's children because that is not true. I care, & I do find that broad sweeping statement HIGHLY OFFENSIVE. DJA, it has been a pleasure.

Val, my apologies if I offended you. You were clearly not who I was targeting with my original post. I was just reading early comments on this subject, and there are clearly people that do not like Katy, which is fine, but they go on to disparage her like she was a child molester or something. We should really be censoring violence for kids, yet in this country nudity is far more offensive to the masses. This seems illogical to me. I'd like to see the country be a little more liberal with issues like nudity and dress code, and more conservative on violence. This would make way more sense to me. Nudity and Sexuality are not things kids should be ashamed of. Again, I would not lump you into the mob that my harsh comments were intended for. Sometimes my anger and passion get the better of me, and I step on some that do not deserve it. My bad. It genuinely has been a pleasure.
