CELEBULITE: Katy Perry Needs to Cover Her Boobs for Elmo

When the Sesame Street folks tested out a video of Katy Perry on YouTube they received quite the negative feedback. The video features the star singing with Elmo in an edited version of “Hot N Cold” as she plays dress up. Result? A ton of unhappy parents. Apparently Katy’s dress-up clothes didn’t cover her up enough and The Sesame Workshop released the following statement:

“‘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 YouTube 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 YouTube.”

What a mess!

When I started this internship I was a quiet, innocent, polite girl. Now I find myself bashing poorly dressed celebrities and trannys thanks to the influence of Daniel Saynt. I am a huge Metro Station fan. My true inspiration for writing is my desire to gain equality for all lactose intolerant folks in the work place. My goal is to prove to the fashion world that we too are people and that we can change the world one Soy Milk mustache at a time!
