If, like us, you just can’t get enough of Katy Perry, you will be pleased to hear that she is extending her considerable talents even further into the world of acting.

Following in the footsteps of other FHM favourites like Nicole Scherzinger, Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez, Katy is due to star in an episode of "meh" comedy How I Met Your Mother later this year.

"Anything you can do I can do better"

As avid K-Pez fans will already know, this is not Katy's first attempted foray into the world of saying words and pulling faces in front of cameras, otherwise known as 'acting'. Katy recently starred in an exclusive video with her furry friend Elmo from Sesame Street.

Her talent in that instance, however, was somewhat overlooked as most parents couldn’t help looking at her... ahem... 'talents', which were very much on show thanks to another gregarious neon outfit choice.

According to outraged parents, her song about wanting to ‘play’ with Elmo wasn’t appropriate for children’s television and her dreams of walking down the glamorous path that is Sesame Street were quickly crushed.

Thankfully, although the video was never aired, it can still be found online with over ten thousand hits.

Hopefully, Katy’s new role as Ted's new love-interest, ‘Honey’, will kick-start her acting career. Or maybe they’ll just stick her in one of those lycra outfits we have all come to know and love. Works for us. 

It hasn’t yet been revealed when the episode called ‘Oh Honey’ is going to be aired, but you can bet your cherry chapstick that men across the world will be tuning in to get their sugar fix.

Katy Perry's 'act natural' needed some work
