Re: Katy Perry pulled from Sesame Street

I guess you have to decide if this is appropriate for a kids show. She is showing cleavage, but probably nothing you haven't seen at a wedding.



My conservative side says the dress is probably just a tad bit too revealing for Sesame Street, but not extremely inappropriate.

At least she didn't wear this:

Re: Katy Perry pulled from Sesame Street

Yeah, that's extreme for Sesame Street.

Weddings aren't planned for kids. Bartenders don't serve juiceboxes and DJs don't play Disney music...it's an adult venue. Sometimes, kids are not even invited.

Had not seen the outfit before, but that has no place on a childrens' show.

With that said, the producers had to have expected this kind of attention whorage from her. (new word alert!)

Apparently you don't watch the Disney channel. Stop making claims that are completely absurd. If you want to claim that Milet Cyrus wears slutty clothes in general go for it. If you want to claim she wears them on Disney then you don't know what you are talking about. I have kids. I watch that stuff every day. There is nothing even remotely slutty about the stuff they wear on that channel.

But, I wouldn't want her on a children's show showing cleavage or wearing a very short skirt. I just think it is inappropriate for Sesame Street.
How about the dozens of times woman have been on the show wearing bathing suits? I would argue her clothes, to a four year old, are completely meaningless. Now if Sesame Street was a show for 12 year-olds maybe I'd feel different. For the most part I agree with Earth...find something more important to complain about.

This K. Perry picture has been altered I watched the clip and her dress where the cleavage is suppose to be was like skin color netting. Much like what a figure skater or Hooters girls wears on their legs.

Re: Katy Perry pulled from Sesame Street

I think this whole thing is pretty dumb.

#1, why book someone like this on a kids show when you know what she's all about?
#2, why not put some clothes on her and avoid all this stupid drama?
#3, I doubt little kids everwhere are ruined by seeing some half covered boobs.

Who has been on SS wearing bathing suits?

#1 Ratings. Ratings = more $$$. Pretty simple.
#2 Agreed.
#3 Probably not, but then again, how much further are parents willing to loosen up in regards to what their 4 year olds watch on TV? Sesame Street should be, without question, a show that parents don't have to censor.

Re: Katy Perry pulled from Sesame Street

Sesame Street cares about ratings? It's still on PBS right?

Re: Katy Perry pulled from Sesame Street

Did you see what some of the parents said?

Quote:
-- "You can practically see her t*ts. That's some wonderful children's programming."
-- "they're gonna have to rename it cleavage avenue"
-- "my kid wants milk now"
These parents are more out of line than her damn clothing is. Just as someone said in the comments:

Quote:
"DUDE MY SON SAW THIS AND GOT A BONER WTTTTTTTTTF."
Maybe your 40 year old should not be watching Sesame Street.

Absolutely yes! The show being on PBS doesn't mean there are no ratings involved. It has 122 Emmy Awards and had a huge ratings boost back in February 2010.

Re: Katy Perry pulled from Sesame Street

Ratings mean almost nothing to Sesame Street and PBS. Ratings only matter for ad-supported TV and customer-subscription TV. Unless SS was about to get shut down for a complete lack of interest they can't be even remotely mistaken for doing something for ratings. In fact doing something like this can be reasonably construed as bone-headed since they are supported by charitable funds which they put at serious risk by casting a questionable shadow over the content. In other words, nobody is sending more donations to PBS for being on the show but there are probably people who aren't sending in donations because of this. What they try to be is "relevant".
