I'm so glad at least a few people around here have a sense of humor.

Here's the thing with Katy Perry and Sesame Street - they invited her on because kids know who she is and like her music. Chances are they've seen her and the way she dresses if they like her enough for Sesame Street to invite her on.

I think Katy Perry's problem is that her general sound really appeals to kids, but some of her lyrics aren't things you want your kids singing.

This is true. Back in the day, before I had kids I remember a girl I worked with who had a 7 and 5 year old telling me her kids LOVED the "skeet skeet" song and would sing it in the car! I was MORTIFIED!! HELLO "To the windows, to the wall,till the sweat drips off my balls. All you females crawl. awww skeet skeet," I do believe was the lyrics!

There are so many things that we as adults listen to, and think our kids don't pay attention to but they love!

Spot on!

Elmo, Dora & Diego could talk about the science behind root canals and kids would be mesmorized due to the sounds of their voices. Very happy happy w/ a high pitch. Young toddlers don't get the phrase "I want to be your teenage dream" but they like the sound of her voice.

If they were listening to the radio, the clean version was "'till the sweat drops down and falls". Still not the best song for children, though! (Although they used to play this song at the middle school dances at my local YMCA).

Anyway, about the subject- I don't think the Katy Perry clip was scandalous at all. Don't little girls wear shorts that show their legs?! Yes, the cleavage may have been a bit much but it still doesn't seem that bad.

People hear "Katy Perry" and automatically assume it's hoochie mama stuff. Which is reasonable, given she's promoted herself that way. But before getting outraged all over the web, it's prudent to actually see what it is you're being outraged over. From the reactions of some, you'd think she giving the wee ones an eyeful a la Sharon Stone in "Basic Instinct".
Maybe but I can't stand pop singers in the first place so I don't allow my kids to listen to that crap, they can listen to rock, metal, or country.

We won't even get into the whole Miss Piggy / Kermit thing - classic fem-dom situation - or Bert and Ernie sleeping in those Hollywood beds - you just KNOW what happens after they turn the cameras off...and why do you think they call him BIG Bird???

No, my friends...Sesame Street is Satan-inspired - the Dark One chuckles every time a new episode is shown, because He knows there will soon be more souls for His dominion.
