Katy Perry showed up last night on the season premiere of Saturday NIght Live and cleverly answered the critics who complained that her huge boobs were inappropriate for Sesame Street. Those little bitches may have stopped PBS but NBC let Katy wear an Elmo t-shirt like no one has ever wore an Elmo t-shirt before.
MTV recaps the sketch this way:
“Katy Perry didn’t say much during her ‘SNL’ cameo but she may have had one of the most memorable comedic turns of the night. The singer, who recently battled drama over a ‘Sesame Street’ clip that was deemed too racy for the toddler set, bounded into a ‘Bronx Beat’ sketch helmed by Poehler and fellow ex-castmember Maya Rudolph.
Playing a bosomy teen named Maureen Dichico who’s been causing a lot of ‘hullabaloo’ at the local library due to her blossoming figure, Perry fielded exclamations from the chatty duo like, ‘Honey, you’ve exploded! Kaboom!’
The pair addressed Perry’s choice of attire — a low-cut t-shirt emblazoned with ‘Sesame Street’ resident Elmo — with barbs like, ‘Look at Elmo, his head’s all stretched out!’ Later, the ladies quip ‘Who cares if kids are looking at boobs? Boobs feed babies,’ a wink at the controversy, which sparked whoops from the audience.”
