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.

Justin Bieber -- Sucking Face with His Opening Act

Justin Bieber was locked in a serious make-out session with the chick who stars in his "Baby" music video ... but the shocking part -- it all went down in the back of a Honda!!!  And TMZ has the photos.

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."

Sasame Street is only for children.
Why expose them to this, if they dont need to see it?
My son would have noticed for sure, kids are not stupid.
If this dress is alright, then why dont grade school teachers wear this low cut type of dress?
Because their not allowed to, its too much skin for younger kids.

It is SESAME STREET!...A Children's show that has been on Public TV for DECADES. Don't like their call?.. It's viewer supported TV at it's finest.... Don't watch, don't contribute.

Oh, please. Tinker Bell wears less clothing, and no parent says ANYTHING about her, even if he is a cartoon character. Little girls look at her all the time; dress up like her for Hallowe'en, have her all over their birthday party decor. Figure skaters wear nude mesh all the time to give the illusion of scant clothing, but NOBODY bats a frickin' eyelash.
What a bunch of easily offended hypocrites. I'm not a fan of Katy's...but this is just stupid and seems more about Katy Perry hate than "we-need-to-protect-our-children-from-the-evil-cleavage".

Really? At least Katy is wearing dress up clothes. Elmo is nude.

Do you mean that skank Katy Perry couldn't cover up her jugs just once for the kids? I guess if she did people would then concentrate on her lack of talent instead of being hypnotized by her b**bs. That's why Madonna, Lady Gag and all the others have to be naked. So the world won't hear their immense flat voices.

Let's have a Muppet character who is HIV positive, two men, Bert and Ernie who have lived together for, oh, 40 years, and their sexuality has been in question, and the biggest scandal is how low someone's dress is? Seems to me there are a lot of people out there with nothing better to do than to stir up a tempest in teapot, over a low cut dress, which may or may not show Katy's breasts. You don't think these kids have seen Mommy's boobs while breastfeeding? Give me a break..if SS wants more ratings and publicity, congratulations. They've got 'em.

I was at school in the kindergarten section. A mother walked in wearing a long black tube top like dress. She had lots of cleavage. All the 5 year old boys could not take their eyes off of her! The little girls made comments like " what is Johns mother wearing?!" Kids notice. Bravo SS.

yes, anyone can walk in a mall and see women dressed like katy perry, however, we trust sesame street would have the decency to take care and respect small children...its time to think of the children first....they grow up so fast and have so much to deal with...lets let them be innocient as long as they can be...just change the costume, all is well....not get so upset about...just do what the company wants...its easy...change out of the outfit that doesnt fit the mold for sesame street lovers.

It would have been cute if Katy wore something more appropriate.
Sure, it may not seem like a big deal to the adults, but this is a children's show and if you haven't stepped out and noticed, little girls are acting "sexier" at younger ages each year!

anyone who thinks it is no big deal that katy perry's outfit is of no concern, must not have children, or they do and they let them have mohawks and draw on walls.....its time to respect each other....given reasons to be rebellious, they will be. These people are giving young children tickets to be their "own" person, without understanding that they are just too young...hello Angela Jolie and her little boy/girl....because of her. Its time to become wonderful parents and care about what happens to children before they are a disaster.

Are you tired of all these scams and business opportunities that are being posted? The internet DOES offer real jobs that you can work as an employee but you just have to know where to find these jobs at NO costs to you. I really do work as an EMPLOYEE for a large internet corporation. (HTTP:// has a FREE list of hundreds of real work at home jobs offered by well known companies. These jobs DO NOT cost you money and are NOT business opportunities. These are employment positions. This is not a scam. Hope this helps!
