She's headed to the Simpsons in December as Moe's gf. haha
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. Among Perry's duties on the show will be leading the gang in singing "The 39 Days of Christmas."
With director Todd Phillipsdeveloping a biopic on the late, great actor-comedian John Belushi, the lead role was inevitably going to be linked to Phillips' 'Hangover' star and 2009's breakout success story, Zach Galifianakis.
Speaking with MTV, however, the actor has revealed that while talks did take place in some shape or form regarding him potentially taking up the role, it does looks like he has passed.

I think he was concerned that the writing on Ghostbusters 3 by these guys would not be up to standard, but I can tell you firsthand, I’m working on the script now and those two—Stupnitsky and Eisenberg, [writer-producers of The Office]—wrote Bill the comic role of a lifetime, and the new Ghostbusters and the old are all well represented in it…we have a strong first draft that Harold [Ramis] and I will take back, and I’m very excited about working on it.
