After her appearance with a "Sesame Street" Muppet was cut from the show because she wore an outfit that was too revealing during the duet with Elmo, singer Katy Perry will guest-star in an episode of "The Simpsons," reports EW.com’s PopWatch blog.
Perry will guest-star in a holiday episode of the animated program, appearing as herself in a live-action segment of the show alongside puppet versions of the “Simpsons” characters, the story says.
“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 said.
The episode, called "The Fight Before Christmas," will air Dec. 5 on Fox and will feature Perry as Moe’s girlfriend. Perry’s guest-appearance was taped in mid-September, before the brouhaha involving the Muppets, the story adds.
