Katie Perry finds a more welcoming venue for her cleavage

The whole drama of Katie Perry having her cameo cut from Sesame Street has now been balanced out in the universe by an equal and opposite force: the pop star will take part in this year’s Christmas episode of The Simpsons.  But unlike most guests on the show, Perry will not just be lending her vocal talents to an animated version of herself – she will actually be appearing in the flesh.  This special episode of The Simpsons will feature puppets not too dissimilar from those seen on Sesame Street, and the action will be real rather than animated.  Perry will play a character who gets romantically involved with bar owner Moe Syslak.  Apparently the episode was filmed before the PBS incident, so it’s not any kind of retaliatory action, but the timing is still pretty funny.
