This isn't just a "Teenage Dream" for Katy Perry - the singer really is appearing on the season opener of "Saturday Night Live."
After tweeting on September 2 that she had "some exciting news to share with you tomorrow............ Let the anticipation build," Perry, 25, then informed fans that she was told to wait a few more days before making her revelation - and she definitely didn't disappoint.
"OKAY! My BIG surprise is I'm opening the season of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE on Sept 25 W/SNL Alum Amy Poehler!!!" she announced on Twitter yesterday, also dropping a not-so-subtle hint that she would like to appear in a skit with the "Parks and Recreation" star.
"Dear Amy Poehler can I please be your braced faced neighbor friend that hangs out with you & RICKKKKK!" she wrote, referring to the excitable tween character Poehler, 38, played in sketches with cast mate Horatio Sanz when she was an "SNL" regular.
"SNL" hasn't yet confirmed whether Perry will act as well as sing during the late-night gig, but it would be cool if her fiance Russell Brand also made a cameo!
