Sesame Street Confirms It's Pulling Katy Perry From Show 

(NEW YORK) -- Following a report on, Sesame Workshop, the producers of Sesame Street, have confirmed that they will not air singer Katy Perry's appearance on an upcoming episode of the show.  TMZ had reported that some parents had complained about a YouTube clip of the appearance, which featured Perry wearing a fifties-style party dress with a low-cut front.

The New York Times reports that in a statement, Sesame Workshop said, "In light of the feedback we've received on the Katy Perry music video which was released on YouTube only, we have decided we will not air the segment on the television broadcast of Sesame Street, which is aimed at preschoolers. Katy Perry fans will still be able to view the video on YouTube."

The video was available on YouTube Thursday morning, but was then removed.
