Katy Perry will star in 'Simpsons' Christmas episode




Sesame Street didn't want Katy Perry -- and her Saturday Night Live appearance proved that her wardrobe is still the real talk of the town -- but leave it to The Simpsons to hop on the pop culture bandwagon and give her a starring role. We can't wait to see how they animate that.

"In the wake of Elmo’s terrible betrayal, the Simpsons puppets wish to announce they stand felt-shoulder-to-shoulder with Katy Perry," Simpsons executive producer Al Jean told Entertainment Weekly in a statement. Jean noted she'll star in a Christmas episode debuting Dec. 5 in which she plays Moe's girlfriend. Hey, it’s a cartoon, folks — wait, no it’s not. EW says she’s going to act with those puppets in a live action segment on the show. Oh.

We've long given up on watching The Simpsons, so someone will have to tell us if it's any good. It's got to be better than actually getting a Katy Perry album in your stocking.
