Katy Perry has left her blues behind and opted for a ginger wig for her upcoming appearance on Raising Hope, where the “Part Of Me” hit-maker will play a prison attendant named Rikki. The episode, titled “Single White Female Role Model”, airs March 6. Katy explained that she got the part because her pal Shannon Woodward stars on the show. (We’re sure she had to really fight for it, regardless.) Catch another pic of Katy’s Raising Hope get-up below. “Shannon Woodward is my best friend,” said Perry. “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.'”
