In an odd and pleasantly sexy twist, Katy Perry appeared live as a guest star on Sunday’s Christmas episode of “The Simpsons.” The segment, in which she acted in person and the characters were puppets, was apparently intended to poke fun at her “Sesame Street” duet with Elmo that was banned because she was dressed too sexily. High time, I’d say, especially with the way Sesame Street just lets Abby Cadabby tart herself up.
And while having Perry in a tight dress and snuggling up with a couple of puppets is a cute, if somewhat toothless, premise, I’ll give it up for the show’s writers and producers for sneaking in a cunnilingus joke during the closing credits. I was actually shocked the show was able to get away with that. Then again, I’d like to think censors have decided society is richer for letting Moe Szyslak be as coarse as possible.
