Katy Perry's Sesame Street Segment Banned

Katy Perry's guest spot on Sesame Street has been pulled from being broadcasted on the show.

While there was nothing controversial about the clean reworking of her song "Hot N Cold," it was her racy outfit that bothered parents of so many youngins. Many parents feel her top was not appropriate for a children's show, and that they don't need their kids to see people dressed like that. While the outfit appeared to be a bustier, it actually included skin-colored mesh on top, much like a figure skating costume. But with the mesh being nearly impossible to see, parents were naturally upset.

Although Sesame Street has yanked the clip from the air, Katy Perry has kept it on her website so her fans can view it.
