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."

Kids the age watch Sesame Street quite often are still breast feeding. So they see breasts with no cloths a few times a day. I really don't think kids seeing breasts partially covered with cloths is going to damage them. Now Sesame Street may get a bump in ratings by being watched by men in the 18 to 85 year range but that could be a good thing.

Is this the same Sesame Street which thinks its OK to tell chidren that Ernie and Bert have come out of the closet, but its not ok for kids to see a woman in a costume, that is less revealing than Tinker Bell's from Pinochio, or has less "cleavage" than Snow White, Cinderella, Ariel, Pochahontas or Mulan?

I liked it. My kids would have too. And neither of them would have even noticed her cleavage.

Everyone knows women have breasts, for most of us they were our
food source for the first few months after being born. Children
know their Mommys have them, and when those children go with
their parents to the grocery store, (or anywhere else) they
will see them. I live in Tucson, AZ and everywhere you look -
there are boobs and more boobs - clevage galore - whether you want to see it or not. Remember the movie "Look Who's Talkin'"?
When little Mikie saw the young woman's clevage and thought -
Yum, lunch! It's just a body part people, like a hand, face or foot, except they're more useful. When these same people that are complaining see a mother breast-feeding her infant in public, do they tell her to 'Get A Room' or 'Put That Thing Away'??? Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Sesame Street - gimme a break! You guys need to lighten up. What I really want to comment on is the picture of Madonna. ICK!! She looks like one of the sisters at the school I went to. She has NOT aged well and looks like a weather beaten hag. Damn!

IU didn't know conservative Republicans watched Sesame Street as I figured most of it went over their heads. This comes from their not comprehending words of more than two syllables.

So what a low cut wedding dress--WOW.. Have you ever noticed what many of the mothers/caretakers are wearing when they drop off their children for school. Sounds like a double standard to me.
Most of these kids for the most part are watching Elmo..

Until the video became news I would venture to say many thus far {parents/etc) had not even paid attention....

You people break me up. You have condom advertisements tampon, kotex etc, women in their underwear, men in their jockies on TV and you're worried about a little cleavage. Find something you can really worry about. Petty little asses.

I don't think that Katy Perry is too hot for Sesame Street, but her clothes are way too sleezy for it. I wouldn't want my niece watching her in that.. that's for sure.

To the person who wrote the comment quoted below: Katy is a great role model, plus, in the past they have had Ozzy Osbourne on Sesame street, and KISS etc... so katy is a pure white angel compared to them...

Quote:"Not sure why the heck Sesame Street would even have Katy Perry o the show in the first place. She isn't a good role model for 3 and 4 year old kids and maybe they should make better choices in the future."

There is nothing wrong with that dress and the fact that this is filled with idiots outraged by it is just sad. Im so sick of people like this using the ignorant "MY GOD THINK ABOUT THE CHILDREN" crap to shove their beliefs down others throats. Crap like this is why I despise society, 85% of it is made up out of morons.
