Perry To Join The Simpsons

KATY PERRY is swapping SESAME STREET for THE SIMPSONS - the singer has signed up to star in a special live action episode of the longrunning TV comedy.
The pop star was due to make a cameo appearance in the hit kids' show alongside beloved character Elmo later this year (10), but the sketch was scrapped following a swathe of complaints from parents over her skimpy outfit.
Now Perry has found herself a role in the more adult The Simpsons, in a Christmas episode which will see the famous family transformed into puppets.
Perry will play herself in the unusual live action sequence and lead the cast in a spoof rendition of classic carol The 12 Days of Christmas.
The Simpsons executive producer Al Jean confirmed the news to Entertainment Weekly magazine and poked fun at Perry's dismissal from Sesame Street.
He says, "In the wake of Elmo's terrible betrayal, The Simpsons puppets wish to announce they stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Katy Perry."
