The new season of “Saturday Night Live” kicked off with former castmember Amy Poehler as the host and Katy Perry as the musical guest. The singer appeared in multiple skits during the show including the infamous “Bronx Beat,” which reunited Poehler and Maya Rudolph. This was the perfect opportunity for Perry (and her people) to address the recent drama surrounding her and “Sesame Street“.
The singer has beef with Elmo! She taped a segment for the show only to learn that it wouldn’t air on the popular children’s series because she was showing too much cleavage. Therefore, she appeared on SNL with her breasts on full display, while damn near busting out of an Elmo top. Subtlety wasn’t the objective here. Check out the clip below…
We get it Katy, you’ve got breasts. As does half of the general population. Rudolph and Poehler used this as an ample opportunity to make inappropriate “Sesame Street” jokes, that were crude but still hilarious. Here are some of their quips:
- “Honey, you’ve exploded! Kaboom!”
- “Looks like this show is brought to you by the number 38 and the letter double D.”
- “Look at Elmo, his head’s all stretched out!”
In case you don’t know what all the fuss is about. Here’s the clip that the folks over at “Sesame Street” refuse to air because of risque “cleavage.” Regardless of that fact it’s not hurting her career. According to BeatCrave, she’ll be appearing in an upcoming episode of “The Simpsons.”
Do you think the show overreacted? What do you think of Perry’s SNL skit?
