Katy Perry is Too Hot For Sesame Street
Earlier this week, video of Katy Perry’s appearance on Sesame Street was released on YouTube, and after garnishing close to a million views, today it was announced that it would not be officially broadcasted on the show because of complaints of it being too sexy.
Sesame Street released this statement earlier today to explain their decision:
"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. Katy Perry fans will still be able to view the video on You Tube."

So what do you think of the video? Should it be allowed, or did Sesame Street make the right decision to pull the video?
