Much Ado About Boobs: Parents Complain About Katy Perry Showing Too Much Skin on Sesame Street
Yesterday, we mentioned that Sesame Street had booked Boob War superpower Katy Perry as one of its musical guests for its 41st season. Apparently, her segment, which had been taped but not aired except in a preview online, outraged some online viewers, who claimed it showed too much skin or cleavage or Russell Brand handprints. The skuttlebutt is that her spot, which was scheduled to run New Year's Eve, won't air or at least will be modified (shades of Lindsay Lohan and Herbie).
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.
Among the parental comments:
-- "You can practically see her t*ts. That's some wonderful children's programming."
-- "they're gonna have to rename it cleavage avenue"
-- "my kid wants milk now"
