As Katy Perry arrived at the launch for her Katy Perry Eyelash collection last night looking sleek and glamorous, she tweeted a photo of herself in a far less flattering look.
Perry will play prison guard Rikki in an upcoming episode of the Fox sitcom “Raising Hope.” In the role, the “Part of Me” singer wears only a fraction of the makeup she normally sports. She also shows off wild, curly red hair that appears far more “Annie” than the star’s usual styles.

Katy Perry Lands TV Role As Prison Guard

Pop star Katy Perry is set for a spell behind bars – as a tough-talking TV prison guard in hit U.S. comedy Raising Hope.

The Firework hitmaker will join the cast of creator Greg Garcia’s Emmy-nominated TV series for the upcoming 6 March (12) episode – and the singer has her best friend, Raising Hope star Shannon Woodward, to thank for landing her the role.

In a fun statement, the estranged wife of comedian Russell Brand says, “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 typecasting me in the role of just a looker, so that I would never be able to play anything more challenging.”

An equally entertaining statement from executive producer Garcia reads: “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 favour.’

“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.”
