Katy Perry has no problem showing off her figure on tour in a variety of creative costumes, and it appears she’ll be showcasing her shape on “Saturday Night Live” too, when she hosts the show for the first time this weekend.
“There were a lot of [skit] pitches about my boobs,” Katy told Access Hollywood on Thursday. “I was cool about that, but I’m not sure all of it [got] in. So we’ll see.”
The singer, who recently provided the voice for Smurfette in the animated feature “The Smurfs” has been enjoying the change of pace – from concert performer to comedy actor for “SNL,” but she’s not ready to commit to a dual career.
“I love doing the animation and the voice-overs,” she said. “It would really take something I could not live without to be in [for me to pursue acting]. It takes so much more discipline than being a musician. I can sing a song on tour and I sing it once… and actors have to sing it 75 different ways from 75 different angles.”
Katy said there is actually one impetus to get her into acting.
“I love Kristen [Wiig], and if she ever asked me to do anything, I would totally do it,” Katy said.
Right now, Katy is happy singing, and taking on this rare outing as “SNL’s” host and she’s been getting good advice too — from husband Russell Brand, who helmed the show once during last season.
“Of course my husband [has given me advice]. Every day I’m checking in with him and he’s giving me the next day move on what I should do or what’s gonna go on or how I should act,” she said.
Beyond checking out her acting and comedy chops, when fans see Katy on “SNL” this Saturday, they’ll get a chance to examine her recently debuted new look – a cropped blond ‘do.
“I got off a tour and I wanted to try something new, so I cut it off,” she explained. “And I went blond. I feel like I’m 16 all over again, because this is the same haircut I had when I was 15 and 16, so everyone’s calling me [by my real name], Katy Hudson right now — my family at least.”
