Pop Culture – Sesame Street’s New Pop Stars

Bob Dylan once sang, “the times, they are a changing.” Ron Burgundy had never heard this song, and apparently, either have a lot of other people. Recently, Sesame Street featured Black Eyed Peas star Will.i.am and Katy Perry. Each of them sang a song with the Sesame Street characters – Will.i.am sang “What I am,” a song about being yourself with a bunch of the characters, and Katy Perry did a version of her song” Hot and Cold” with Elmo. A lot of people are putting this down and crying out in disgust that these pop stars are featured on the show. Now, maybe Katy Perry’s outfit is a little “risqué,” but Sesame Street has had pop stars on the show since the beginning, and being pop stars, they all sported the look of the time. So, they may not be Stevie Wonder or Cab Calloway, but Will.i.am and Katy Perry are in.

Update: Here’s a fun one of Adam Sandler and Elmo singing a song about Elmo – sure to make you smile.
