Katy Perry to Guest on Episode of "The Simpsons"

While Katy Perry make have gotten the shaft from Sesame Street, which decided not to air her duet with Elmo after viewers complained she was showing too much skin in the YouTube clip of the performance, she has scored another key gig that should more than make up for it. She will guest on the Christmas-themed episode of The Simpsons. Perry will play herself and in live-action mode. Executive producer Al Jean told EW that "in the wake of Elmo's terrible betrayal, the Simpsons puppets wish to announce they stand felt-shoulder-to-shoulder with Katy Perry." I am sure Homer and Bart won't care if Perry shows off her assets on their show, which, while animated, isn't designed for children, like Sesame Street.
On her episode, Perry will lead a rendition of "The 39 Days of Christmas" and will star as Moe's girlfriend. Perry filmed her parts earlier this month before she got the boot from Sesame Street. Whatever the case, Perry can rest easy because she worked with two iconic shows on the American cultural landscape.
Martha Stewart will also guest on The Simpsons this season but as a cartoon and not in live-action form like Perry.
Will you watch the Katy Perry episode of The Simpsons? What about the Martha Stewart ep? ?
