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.

One question: If it's just "flesh colored mesh" why are the shadows of cleavage apparent?

People can't be serious that think what she's wearing is okay. She's going on a children show, for Christ's sake. Can she not stop whoring it up for one day?

Is she that desperate and insecure that she can't go on a kids show without flaunting her tits and looking sexy?

I expected the poll results to be about 80% against what she was wearing, not 55% in favour.....what the hell is wrong with you people? Kids don't need to have sex shoved down their throats before they learn how to read or write.

Sorry, but I think she looks like Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty - and I never heard any complaints about them. Children see a lot more than that on television or from 'the people in their neighbourhood.' I don't really see an issue here!

Give me a break. I thought what she wore was okay, and she doesn't have THAT much boob to show off to begin with. I think it's the parents that are getting the boners, not the kids! Get yer minds out of the gutters!

I think everyone is over reacting. Miss Piggy is a muppet, and look at the costumes they had her in on the show - there has always been a character with some sorta sexual appeal. I'm not offended by this at all. The parents are the ones demonizing this.

87. Seriously? People are actually scandalized by this?
If you are scandalized by your kid seeing this, then don't even take him to a beach or pool...
No wonder there are alot of sexually repressed people out there.
What's up with this puritanism????

So, basically what you idiotic point is...children will view porn on the internet so just show them porn on Sesame Street.

Your comment shows you have absolutely no respect for viewpoint or people's ideas. It also shows you are a provincial and close-minded individual who hides behind his/her computer all day attacking individuals that don't see eye to eye wiyj you.
I respect you as I know that this is the way you think and I understand that. I will never call you idiotic or other insults. I know that everybody is entitled to an opinion and that is what makes diversity great.
You seriously have a lot of anger issues

What does my point have to do with porn on the internet? What a way to distort what I said...

Why are these people so upset about this completely harmless outfit? Something is seriously very, very wrong in the U.S. Not her outfit is disturbing, the reactions are.

Follow my logic here....Sesame Street is all hispanic....hispanics start having babies when they are 12....all Katy is doing is helping out the little latinos in their sex ed, no big deal, ese!

I was simply reading this article on TMZ when my 3 year old walked in, looked at my screen and said "mommy she has big boobies".
I would say Sesame Street probably made the right decision.

The last thing I want my little girl watching is this. If you want to dress like a prostitute, do it among adults. Sesame Street should not have allowed her to dress like that in the first place.

Here is an idea, why don't you try to do something with your talent without relying on dressing like a slut?

How stupid. Maybe her knockers will keep their kids straight. This country is seriously backwards. Naked body = good, Violence = bad. She isn't naked and so what if she was? If people have that much time to worry about Katy's boobs, then they need to shut up and get out and work more and help the economy recover!

Katy Perry is so full of herself. She's not even that attractive with her huge bug eyes and nerd like attributes. A testament to her arrogance was when she called out her class mate at her old high school show, also the tweet she made stating the camera guy was trying to take a picture up her dress when the footage doesn't show anything remotely like that.

Seriously? I really doubt kids that SHOULD be watching Sesame Street will "get" the boob thing. Surely they've seen Mommy trapsing around the house before in a robe.
