Just when we thought Glee couldn’t possibly infiltrate pop culture any more, California Girls-singing Katy Perry has asked her fans to start a Betty White-esque Facebook campaign to land her on the hit TV show.
When asked her thoughts on the show, the singer gushed: Please! I would love somebody to start that Facebook group and persuade them. I would absolutely love that. To which her fiancé© Russell Brand responded, [she’s] a brilliant actress.
Okay, fair “ getting on the show would be fantastic, and I have no doubt of Perry’s ability to carry a tune and deliver lines simultaneously, but Russell, it’s okay: a guest appearance doesn’t exactly require an Academy-Award winning performance. (Meaning? You don’t need to convince us of her acting skills “ she’s famous. She’ll get the job.)
Now this brings the famous people linked to Glee count to four, with Justin Timberlake, Leona Lewis and Victoria Beckham having already declared their desire to appear on the show. So the real question of the hour: is the show that once made everyone raise their eyebrows in unanimous huh? fashion about to be the show of this generation? (Or is it already?)
All I ask is that the lovely Ms. Perry refrains from singing California Girls “ or at least brings Snoop Dogg to high school with her.
