Katy Perry Too Sexy for Sesame Street!
Singer Katy Perry, the popstar most famous for her song, I Kissed A Girl, will not be appearing on Sesame Street after all. Though her appearance was already taped, and the video released to YouTube, the show has bowed to public pressure and zapped the singer's appearance from their upcoming schedule. (You can see video below!)
In a press release the producers of Sesame Street said:
“In light of the feedback we’ve received on the Katy Perry music video which was released on YouTube only, we have decided we will not air the segment on the television broadcast of Sesame Street, which is aimed at preschoolers. 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.”
Sexy Katy is not the only singer/celeb to be pulled from a Sesame Street schedule. R&B Singer, Chris Brown, who appeared on Sesame Street in 2007 doing a duet with Elmo, was notified that his appearance would no longer be shown on reruns after the flack created around the 2009 Rhianna beating.
Elmo, however, announced on Good Morning America that Katy Perry will be invited back to Sesame Street for a future taping. Um, maybe on where she's wearing a tad more clothes?
