Goodbye, Elmo. Hello, Homer.
Coming on the heels of all that was Cleavagegate, it's just been announced that Katy Perry will be hanging out for with some of the boobs over in Springfield during a holiday-themed episode of The Simpsons.
But rather than being animated, the "Hot N Cold" singer will appear, appropriately, in the flesh as part of a live-action segment featuring several of the show's characters as puppets, Fox confirms to E! News.
"In the wake of Elmo's terrible betrayal, the Simpsons puppets wish to announce they stand felt-shoulder-to-shoulder with Katy Perry," said series executive producer Al Jean.
And much like her almost-stint on Sesame Street, Perry will be heard belting one out during the Dec. 5 episode (which was actually shot earlier this month, prior to the brouhaha over her breasts)—in this case, "The 39 Days of Christmas" as, of all things, tavern owner Moe Szyslak's girlfriend.
We'll drink to that!
