How Offensive, Katy Perry!

Seems as though Katy Perry’s performance wasn’t appreciated by parents who took a peek at the “revealing” dress she had on while dancing with the handsome red-headed Elmo. The production company pulled it off after receiving numerous complaints by outraged parents. Are you kidding? Her dress wasn’t anymore revealing than what children are wearing today. In fact, if you head over to the public pools or the beaches, you’ll find worst case scenarios. Will these parents hide their children’s eyes forever? Will they place two eye patches on them in public, in fear of what’s to be seen out there in this big scary world? Get over it.



In fact, earlier cartoons and kids’ shows displayed even more revealing outfits by some of their characters, yet no complaints have been reported. Characters such as, Belle from Beauty & the Beast, Snow White, Smurfette and oh, the ever so sexy Jessica Rabbit. If we’re going to get super conservative, then stop bringing your children to beaches and have them wear full wet suits while swimming. These parents seem to want to flip back time and live like the Amish. In fact, if you’re that concerned, let your kids play with the children that live in the Hasidic communities. I have seen their children and women dress even more revealing at times. It just never ends. When will we stop being so offended and outraged by showing a little skin? It's a huge honor to even have Katy Perry even think about hopping onboard Sesame Street in the first place.

Here's the highly offensive video. Please send your kids out of the room while viewing this.

I....don't know, here.....

The age of children that watch S.S. IS a little YOUNG for Katy Perry to be dislaying her "baby dinners" like that, but I'm pretty sure it's a combination of JEALOUS MOTHERS and OSCAR THE GROUCH that screwed it up for the rest of us !!!

I can't view the video (work) so i will have to come back.

i am going to go out on a limb here and say that Katy Perry (though very talented) is usually a little too much on the risky side for toddlers viewing. So I can understand - to a point.

Really, parents should be veiwing what their children watch, and if they don't like it or don't agree, then turn it off. Honestly in my mind, it it that simple. If you want the TV to babysit your child, then you let the media determine what your child see's. End of story.

On a side note Jessica Rabbit isn't bad, she was just drawn that way ;)

Also, when you dad was in prison he surely was butt fucked by Bubba.

He had it coming for being a felon though.

Uhhhhh babies are born naked and any hang up with flesh comes afterward. I don't see too much of her upper body nor near enough. But then I don't watch sesame street so *shrug* let the impotent ragers dictate to a 40 year institution which taught more children the fundamentals of reading and math than most every school in the country have their way.

I don't know about the rest of you but I've already put in my orders for full length black wool burkas for the grand kids trip to the beach next summer...

these anal striving yuppie morons who believe that junior, at the age of three, thinks like an adult and is getting turned on by cleavage.... spare me.

Thanks for your comments everyone! I appreciate the feedback. I love hearing different opinions on this because I'm not a mother, so maybe I see things differently.

And for the anonymous commenter re: my dad's "activities" in prison...? Umm, maybe he had his first gay experience in prison, I'm not sure, but I guess the gay gene runs in the family. Interesting thought though, I'll have to ask him about that. Cheers!

the children didn't think anything of it, it is the dirty minded adults that find offense in everything.
Anonymus must spend a lot of time in jail to make such general assumptions, dont you think?

Surely someone dressed her like that so its not even her fault. Blame the people that made it and to be fair children the same age watch lady gaga, rihanna and others cavorting in a lot less than that on pre watershed tv x

If short-shorts get any shorter, they will have to ride up over the hip like a bikini because that's the only part of the leg left unexposed.
