UPDATE: Katy Perry going to 'Sesame Street' after all



mom_katyperryelmo.jpgUPDATE: Elmo is such a gracious host that he's invited Katy Perry back to Sesame Street for another play date Seems like a smart move, since she's brought the venerable kids' show more publicity than it's gotten in years. Maybe while she's picking out a less revealing outfit, she can also sign up for some acting lessons.

Katy Perry is known for her outlandish costumes (but not as much as, say, Lady Gaga) but parents saw enough of her in the Sesame Street video featuring Elmo that they started complaining. The video has been pulled from the upcoming season of the popular children's show. Our pal over at the Feed blog Eric Deggans has this take on the situation.

Now, Mommas, do you really think that tiny tykes who watch Sesame Street would get that her cleavage was front and center in this video? Probably not. They would have enjoyed her chasing Elmo around. But parents sure didn't like it and now Katy's off. We wonder what segment will replace her? Maybe parents were really worried that her fiance Russell Brand would show up as Aldous Snow from Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek. You would definitely need to sheild your child's eyes from that.
