Hello folks! I was browsing ABC’s website this morning and I stumbled upon an interesting video that I want to share with everyone. In this video – http://tinyurl.com/seasmestreet – Pop Icon, Katy Perry makes her ‘debut’ on the infamous children’s show, Sesame Street. I encourage my readers to view at least several segments of the video because it really gets you thinking about pop culture today.
After Katy Perry’s video was ‘leaked’ online before the broadcast of the Sesame Street episode, many parents were outraged of Perry’s dress. Parents claimed she was exposing too much of herself and that her dress was too low exposing her cleavage. Many parents were outraged and didn’t want their children to see this clip, even though its broadcasted on the internet…specifically on YouTube.
Sesame Street proclaims they removed the video based on the feedback from parents. Yet, from the interview with “Elmo” and “Grover” (scary that I’m citing an interview with fictional puppets!), it seems they would like to have Katy back on the show. Probably covering herself up this time. Sesame street has been known for having celebrities make appearances on their show. This is great for Sesame Street because it allows parents to connect to the show as well.
Seeing how this is a children’s show, I’m not shocked to see Sesame Street pull the video. They don’t want to damage their reputation. On the other hand, I’m a little shocked they would produce the video and have it ready to air and then decide to ‘cut’ the skit. What do you think?
I thought I’d post several other videos of celebrities on Sesame Street because I find it quite amusing. Hope you enjoy!
