MTV plot over-literal Katy Perry performance

Given that Katy Perry's I Kissed A Girl has all the subtlety of a Simon Heffer think piece, it's surprising to discover that MTV executives are afraid that their viewers might not have got the point of the song, and are trying to get her to kiss a girl while performing her hit single Look! Look! I've Had A CosmoGirl Style Bi-Try Experimental Snog With A Girl! Me, Over Here! Little Bit Gay! OMG Not "Gay" Gay Though Like, Cringe Or What?.

And through a process which we can only conclude involved typing FAMOOS LESBIAN into Google, they're angling for Lindsay Lohan. Which would take a grindingly obvious stunt record, add a screamingly hackneyed stunt, and call for a flatly unsurprising guest appearance.

Now: if it was Blanche from the Golden Girls, then we'd offer some respect.

Huzzah for thuddingly-literal song interpretations! Did any of these MTV executives work as choreographers for Pan's People in their early days, by any chance? Will Panic at the Disco perform 'Nine in the Afternoon' in front of a large clockface? Will Coldplay be asked to perform 'Violet Hill' because the set-designers couldn't think what to do for 'Viva La Vida', but they've got a nice styrofoam mound going spare that they could paint purple?

Try all they like, they'll never top their 1973 masterpeice for Gilbert O'Sullivan's 'Get Down', which consisted of the girls pointing at some dogs sitting on a sofa for three minutes. Genius.

I prefer Jill Sobule. And believe me, I never thought I would type those words.
