Almost every month, a breakthrough singer graces The Young and the Restless to add zest to a particular storyline and promote some charted hits.  Following the guest appearance of country music singer-songwriter Trace Adkins early last month, another music artist is set to make her debut on the long-running soap.

Katy Perry Guest Stars on 'The Young and the Restless'

Katy Perry, whose “I Kissed a Girl” music video recently peaked at number 2 on iTunes Top 100, is scheduled to appear on The Young and the Restless on June 12.  According to Soap Opera Digest, the 23-year-old singer-songwriter will be appearing as herself in scenes with Joshua Morrow (Nick), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Peter Bergman (Jack) and Sharon Case (Sharon), when she poses for a photo shoot for the second cover of Restless Style.

In addition to “I Kissed a Girl”, which was released this year by Capitol Records, Perry is also known for her single “UR So Gay.”  Dubbed by Blender Magazine as the “Next Big Thing,” Perry’s songs has been included on MTV’s The Hills and Oxygen network’s Girls.  Beyond television, her music has also been incorporated in the 2005 film The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and in the recent film Baby Mama.

Perry’s stint on The Young and the Restless marks her debut on the soap circuit, although this isn’t the first time she landed a role on TV.  Recently, she guest starred on ABC Family’s Wildfire in the episode called “Life’s Too Short.”  She also made a cameo appearance on Carbon Leaf’s video “Learn to Fly” and appeared in advertisements for Too Faced Cosmetics’ Spring 2007 line.
