Celebrity guest stars have been a big part of Sesame Street since the beginning…and the personality of each star is what makes the episodes fun.
Last week, Katy Perry leaked a video of her own guest spot on Sesame Street–a cute song called "Hot N Cold"…in the spot, Katy Perry, in a chartreuse party dress and veil, is complaining that Elmo doesn't want to play dress up with her anymore. Almost immediately, a bunch of 'concerned' parents complained about the outfit that Perry was wearing–and the folks at Sesame Street pulled the episode.
Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. I am so disappointed in Sesame Street–not to mention confused. Have these parents never taken their kids to the beach or to a pool? Never let their kids play dress up? Never noticed that Ariel, the Little Mermaid, is wearing nothing more than a bra top and tail?
Should we really be that concerned over a little bit a cleavage–merely the tops of those selfsame milk-producing mammary glands that are suddenly all over the city in pro breastfeeding ads?
Too much fuss over a freaking princess dress…and way uncool that Sesame Street caved.
Clearly, the next obvious step is that Elmo should be forced to start wearing pants 😉
