Katy Perry's Dress -- Too Hot for 'Sesame Street'

9/23/2010 6:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katy Perry's costume -- and song -- have been yanked from "Sesame Street" ... after the show began receiving complaints like, "that was the most messed up thing iv [sic] ever seen."

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

The chick playing tonsil hockey with The Biebs is 16-year-old Jasmine Villegas -- who also happens to be the opening act on Bieber's concert tour.

The photos were taken on Thursday, September 9 in Venice, CA by some Canadian tourist who just happened to notice his country's most famous pop star in the midst of a make-out session with the luckiest teenage girl on the planet.

The two had been rumored to be dating ... but they insisted they were just "really cool friends."

Bravo, Sesame Street, for pulling it, shame on you, Sesame Street for doing it in the first place. Her breasts are showing, for heaven's sakes, and the song itself is sexy. Can't we let our kids grow up for a little while? It's wrong that we have to analyze everything that comes out for children to make sure that it clean and decent for our children. Now all the cartoon movies are trying to teach something in one way or another to our children. I WILL TEACH MY CHILDREN, thank you very much, Hollywood!!!!!!

Great job PBS...now you have Mr. Muslim comment #132 ready to call on his Muslim friends, and "GOD" knows what else...
"CHILDREN MUST NOT BE EXPOSED TO NUDITY AND SEXUALITY" he says!Am I alone on this one, or was there absolutely NO real nudity OR sexuality presented here to our young ones??? Have they not(inadvertantly) seen worse??? Should we be subjecting them to random religious wars and the merciless killings of our people to "save" them instead?! Just one more reason to strengthen our borders, if you ask me...

First of all, if you saw the whole clip, you would know that Elmo is not running away from Katy Perry but is in fact playing tag with her and she is it! Second of all, I'm glad that this was pulled from the SS show and I agree there is a lot of crap that we are all bombarded with and that society as a whole is going to hell in a hand basket! We see so much cleavage and unappropiate dress everywhere because we think of it as the norm now and it is not!!! The new morality is the old immorality and you people who think this is normal are perverts!!!
