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 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."

I'm glad. It was inappropriate for children. Good move.

I don't care for it . . . But it's not because of her chest showing. You have to have one to show one. Those in the A and B cup range must thank Victoria's Secret for push-up bra's. Give Katy their number...it might help. ;)

I am certainly no prude but KUDOS to Sesame Street, Miss Perry should have buttoned it up for the children's show instead of yet again making herself look like a tramp.
I for one am tired of looking at these tits and the gimmick has gotten really old. Seems to me she is just covering up, or not, the fact that she really isn't that great of a singer.

Katy Perry can kiss all the girls and like it she wants. What SS needs is to take more consideration of their guest stars. Just because someone is a big star, does not make them suitable for SS. This isn't the first time SS has done this. It's about time that people started complaining. If you think Katy Perry is ok for your 13 year old, that's your business. That doesn't make her ok for 3 year olds. Personally, don't think she's cute for 13 year olds either but everyone to their own parenting style.

Hallelujah, someone has finally decided that there are limits. Isn't it bad enough that prepubescents, have been corrupted with the likes of people like Lindsay Lohan, Mylie cyrus and Brittney and her pregnant sister. Now we are working on corrupting our pre schoolers with Katie perry. She kissed a girla nd liked it and then admitted she was embaressed to sing it in front of her parents. Katie buy a clue if you are embaressed to say it in front of Mom and Dad then why should I let you sing it in front of my tween. I say leave people like Katie out of children's programming. Now let's keep searching for our limits and stand up for them. Sadly even though the preschoolers will not see it most of the tweens have on you tube. Shame on you sesame street.

CHILDREN MUST NOT BE EXPOSED TO NUDITY AND SEXUALITY.

IT IS A BIG ERROR ON THE PART OF PBS TO ALLOW SOMEONE INFAMOUS FOR SONGS ABOUT SEX TO RECORD A SHOW MEANT FOR CHILDREN.

By all means, cut the number. We wouldn't want kids to know that women have breasts that, in some cases, are darned attractive. Most Disney characters manage to look pretty provocative too. What't the big deal.

What bothered me more about the video was, why did Elmo run away? Is he just shy or was he overwhelmed by her cleavage?

Grow up people. Children see more cleavage on tv commercials for bra's and they are not yanked. They also see quite a bit of camel toes also. It's another sign of the times!

What is the big deal!! It's not like her nipples are showing her breast at not even the large. Kids see more on there own shows and changing the channels. United States need to wake up and stop trying to be the good child all the time and monitoring every single thing. When day time soaps are on and now a soap channel shows more boobs sex and murder, you got then selling pills for sex and womans products all day long a small amount of breast is nothing! Even searching online for kids TV shows and games porn shows up!
