Katy Perry set for 'Raising Hope' cameo

Katy Perry will expand her list of exciting television guest appearances with a forthcoming cameo on the popular Fox show 'Raising Hope'. 

The networke confirmed today, February 22, that the 'Teenage Dream' hitmaker will star in an upcoming episode of the programme that is due to be shown in the U.S. on March 6.

She is set to portray a prison attendant named Rikki who claims to be from Sabrina's (Perry's real-life friend Shannon Woodward) past and Greg Garcia, the show's executive producer, explained:

"Shannon Woodward told me that her friend Katy was interested in doing an episode and I thought, 'Why not? Let's do your friend Katy a favor. Then she came in and did a terrific job. She was hilarious. And now people are telling me that Katy is also a singer. I sincerely hope that her appearance on the show helps her get her singing career off the ground. It's a tough business."




Speaking about her guest role, Perry added: "Shannon Woodward is my best friend. A couple weeks ago, I was home, just toasting up a frozen chicken fillet when she called me up and asked if I wanted to do something 'fun' for a change and try out a guest role on her TV show."

"I thought, 'Sure, I have nothing else to do, and I like chillin' with my best friend.' Greg was nice, but I hope he's not secretly sabotaging my potential future career by type-casting me in the role of just a looker, so that I would never be able to play anything more challenging."
