As a young woman who has done enough babysitting in her lifetime to basically be a mom, I just don’t get why parents are upset about Katy Perry’s duet with Elmo. Okay, she’s showing some skin. You know your kids are sneaking downstairs and watching Jersey Shore reruns while you sleep, right? The video, originally scheduled to air on New Year’s Eve, was pulled by producers at Sesame Street after parents complained that Perry was dressed inappropriately for a children’s program. I think there are more inappropriate things on TV right now than Elmo galloping around scantily clad Katy Perry, for instance- Rachel Maddow.
