Finally, the furry red monster we all love has broken his silence about the heated controversy surrounding “Sesame Street” guest star Katy Perry and her cleavage.
This morning, Elmo appeared on ABC News’ “Good Morning America” to tell the world his thoughts about the incident. He said that he is sorry that his “playdate” with Katy Perry had to be cancelled, but that there are no hard feelings between them.
In case you haven’t heard, producers axed the segment after parents complained about Perry’s cleavage-baring dress.
“We’ll have another one. Elmo loves Ms. Katy and we had a good time,” Elmo told ABC News’ George Stephanopolous. “So we’ll have another play date.”
While some moms are outraged about the singer’s outfit, a lot of people I’ve spoken to think the whole thing has been blown out of proportion. What’s the big deal?
Even “Sesame Street” producer executive producer Carol-Lynne Parente said she was surprised by all of the uproar over the segment.
“We would never produce anything we thought was inappropriate. We were surprised not only by the amount of feedback, but how fast it came in. It was a lot,” Parente told Stephanopoulos.
Meanwhile, the video of Elmo’s unaired “play date” with Perry has gotten more than a million hits on YouTube.
