If you haven’t already heard about it, you probably will. As has become one of Sesame Street’s more fun traditions, they invited a popular singer to come and record a “kid-ified” version of one of their well-known songs with one or more of the Sesame Street cast. Most recently, Katy Perry recorded a version of her song Hot N’ Cold with Elmo that would be airing on the September 27th season opener. As of September 23rd, Sesame Street pulled the segment due to comments about the amount of her cleavage being shown. You can read a bit more about it at one of the Wall Street Journal blogs.
I’ve got my own thoughts about the video and the attention/controversy surrounding it. I’d love to hear from you all, though (I’ll post my thoughts later in the comments):
- What are your thoughts about the video?
- What would you tell parents who are outraged at the video?
- What would you tell parents who are outraged it was pulled?
