Recently a clip from Katy Perry's appearance on Sesame Street got parents riled up when it was released online (the episode the singer appears on isn't set to air until November 3rd). In the clip, Perry is singing a kid-friendly version of her song "Hot n' Cold" to Elmo, but some parents think she's showing too much skin during the skit.
This morning, Sesame Street released a statement regarding the controversy, stating:
Sesame Street has a long history of working with celebrities across all genres, including athletes, actors, musicians and artists. Sesame Street has always been written on two levels, for the child and adult. We use parodies and celebrity segments to interest adults in the show because we know that a child learns best when co-viewing with a parent or care-giver. We also value our viewer’s opinions and particularly those of parents. In light of the feedback we’ve received on the Katy Perry music video which was released on You Tube only, we have decided we will not air the segment on the television broadcast of Sesame Street, which is aimed at preschoolers.
What do you think, in the past hasn't Miss Piggy shown more skin than Miss Perry did?
