After Katy Perry’s “Objectify Me Elmo” outfit on Sesame Street sparked the Great Cleavage Controversy Of 2010, the pop star has been mostly gracious about it while husband-to-be Russell Brand has been mostly obvious. But what about the Kenny Rogers to her Dolly Parton, Elmo himself, whose coy refusal to play dress-up started this whole mess in the first place? The Muppet himself offered an answer on today’s Good Morning America, appearing alongside Grover to discuss the non-issue with anchor George Stephanopoulos, who used to be a senior advisor to Bill Clinton and now talks boobs with puppets. “Elmo loves Miss Katy and we had a good time,” Elmo said. “So we’ll have another playdate.” Grover then pointed out his Super Grover costume, sarcastically asking, “It is not too revealing, is it?” (which is a pretty brave dig on Grover’s part, considering some of the naughtiness he’s gotten away with).
