Looks like Elmo wasn’t too concerned about Katy Perry’s low-cut dress — he wants Katy Perry to take another stroll down Sesame Street!
It’s OK, Katy Perry, all is forgiven! Although parents were up in arms over the singer wearing a low-cut Giles Deacon gown in a video with Elmo from Sesame Street, the little red Muppet joined his friend Grover and executive producer Carol-Lynn Parente on Good Morning America this morning to discuss the controversy. And the good news is that Elmo doesn’t hold a grudge. “Elmo loves Miss Katy,” he said. “We had a good time. So we’ll have another play date.”
“We would never, never produce anything that we thought was inappropriate,” Ms. Parente said. Their goal with these celebrities is “to go after those younger parents who may not have grown up with Sesame Street and may not seek Sesame Street out.”
Earlier this week, Katy, who did a sing-along to a kiddie version of her song “Hot N’ Cold” with Elmo, was banned from Sesame Street due to her low-cut and boobalicious dress. “Wow, looks like my play date with Elmo has been cut short!” Katy tweeted on Thursday. “If you still wanna play see it at http://www.katyperry.com Tag you’re it, Elmo!”
Her fiance, British comedian Russell Brand, also weighed in on the situation, tweeting, “today’s Sesame Street will NOT be brought to you by the number 34 or the letter D.” And then sent an additional tweet to Perry about the her video, “Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sex-with-me Street?”
But, don’t worry Katy, Elmo will make sure you know how to get back to his home turf. “Elmo loves Miss Katy,” he says, “We had a good time. So we’ll have another play date.” Grover, who showed up wearing his Super Grover costume, also chimed in saying, “How do you like my new outfit, huh? It is not too revealing, is it?”
Looks like everyone wants Katy to schedule another play date! Maybe she should try wearing jeans and a T-shirt next time, huh? Check out the interview and scenes from Katy’s banned video below.
