NEW YORK – Katy Perry’s cleavage is fine for Russell Brand – not so for Elmo and “Sesame Street.”

The children’s show says it won’t air a taped segment featuring the “California Gurls” singer and Elmo. The pop star – who is known for her risque outfits – wore a gold bustier top as she sang a version of her hit “Hot N Cold.” But some felt it was too revealing for the kid set.

“Sesame Street” said in a statement Thursday that in light of the “feedback we’ve received” after the bit was aired on YouTube, they won’t include it on the show. While the show said it was still available on YouTube, it had been removed by the official “Sesame Street YouTube” channel. Other versions on YouTube have generated thousands of hits.

A rep for Perry said Thursday that Perry enjoyed her time with “Sesame Street and” Elmo, and said that the clip is still on her website.
