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.

Does anyone really expect a "rock star" to be the best judge of clothing choices. While I don't think her outfit is exceptable for the Sesame Street audience, where were the producers of the show to suggest a more fitting outfit? It did not seem as though the producers of the show cared until parents became outranged. I think they are more to blame in this situation than Katie.

This seems like an overreaction. I really doubt the kids would be staring at Katy's boobs although apparently the parents are.

The girl can't help it if she's well endowed. They said the same thing about Marlo Thomas wearing turtlenecks 40 years ago.

I have 4 daughters ranging in age from 2 yrs old to 15. I've seen my fair share of sesame street and don't see what the big deal is with this video. All I, and any of my children, see is a girl in "dress up" clothes. Aren't there better things in the media to criticize than this? Shame on people for making something obviously innocent into something seedy and sexual.

Sesame Street is unique in that it is designed for audiences young and old. If you want to view something that will absolutely drive you bonkers while the kids love and demand to see it, try Barney.

More like kids across America will barf at from looking at her shameless exhibitionism. She is demented and a pig to do that to kids. Whoever booked her on that show needs to be fired. Poor Russell Brand to be stuck with this idiot.

Good move! She should not be sharing her disgusting morals on very impressionable children. Just because she dresses like a slut and wants to reveal her body does not mean she should influence little children and tell them that is the right thing to do.

Seriously, how do some people consider this woman to be a role model?

All of my children breastfed A LOT! Cleavage would make them enjoy Sesame Street even more. Boobies are good for kids.

Seriously?! She's in a tank top! Kids can see a hell of a lot more skin than that on their way to school every day.I don't think kids young enough to watch Sesame Street are thinking like this at all.
Funny article, TMZ!
