Despite Best Week Ever’s attempt to cover up Katy Perry’s “offensive” cleavage with a boob apron, her Sesame Street Elmo duet still suffered cancellation thanks to viewer protest.
In related Katy-Perry-with-puppets news, the pop star will appear on a holiday special of The Simpsons the likes of which have never been explored previously. Perry will appear as herself, live action, and will play Moe’s girlfriend. “In the wake of Elmo’s terrible betrayal, the Simpsons puppets wish to announce they stand felt-shoulder-to-shoulder with Katy Perry,” series executive producer Al Jean told EW.com in a statement.
If all of this doesn’t sound weird enough, the episode, entitled “The Fight Before Christmas,” also features an animated Martha Stewart. It will air Dec. 5 on Fox.
