Sesame Street started previewing its 41st season on the Web this week. One of the shorts, however, got a lot more attention than the rest: a two-and-a-half minute video of pop star Katy Perry singing a reworked version of her 2008 hit "Hot N Cold" with Elmo. The issue: the perception that Perry's outfit wasn't appropriate for a show geared toward children ages one to six.
Parents checking out the video began leaving critical comments like:
"Couldn't she wear something that was more. APPROPRIATE and "I DO NOT want my five year old lookin at that!"
Perry wasn't actually half-naked -- her outfit featured a flesh-colored mesh top that went all the way up to her neck, like a figure-skating or gymnastics costume ...are thses kids allowed to watch the Olympics???
BTW ELMO IS RUNNING AROUND NAKED!!!!
