You can bet good old Moe Syslak will have no problem at all with Katy Perry’s low-cut dresses when the singer drops in to visit “The Simpsons” in December. After getting the hook on “Sesame Street” for showing Elmo too much cleavage, Perry is gearing up to add to her comedic résumé with a coveted guest spot on the long-running Fox sitcom on December 5.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Perry will guest in a very special Christmas-themed “Simpsons” episode in which the sallow-skinned denizens of Springfield will join her in live action as puppets. Perry will, of course, play herself in the bit, in which, yes, she will play Moe’s girlfriend in an episode entitled “The Fight Before Christmas.”
Executive producer Al Jean spilled a bit of the reasoning for taking the lovably 2-D characters into the third dimension for the show, which was actually shot in mid-September, before Cleavagegate. “In the wake of Elmo’s terrible betrayal, the Simpsons puppets wish to announce they stand felt-shoulder-to-shoulder with Katy Perry,” Jean said
