Katy Perry is too hot for Sesame Street.
Fortunately, this story was picked up on by Saturday Night Live, which Katy performed on this week, and she made light of it in a very low-cut Elmo top in a sketch.
The singer played a 16-year old library volunteer, Maureen DiChico, appearing on a mock daytime talk show, Bronx Beat, hosted by Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph:
The talk show hosts, naturally, obsessed over her chest.
"Kaboom!" one says. The other adds, "Look at Elmo's head, it's all stretched out!" Happily amused, Perry's character bounces up and down happily. High comedy.
Her character then tells the ladies she has been ordered to wear looser-fitting clothing when she reads to children at the local library. Sounds vaguely familiar.
One host snips, "Who cares if kids are looking at boobs - boobs feed babies, alright?" We'd love it if someone made that argument to Sesame Street producers.
Katy's fiance, Russell Brand, who was recently arrested, later Tweeted: "Today's Sesame Street will NOT be brought to you by the number 34 or the letter D."
