• Singer and “bad actress” Kelly Clarkson begs for Parks and Recreation guest role

    Universal truth #1: everyone has a guilty pop music pleasure. I, for one, currently love everything about Justin Bieber (srsly), but a few years back, that spot was held by none other than Kelly Clarkson. I mean, really – “Since U Been Gone” speaks to all of us. As much as I dig her songs, I must admit to being surprised to hear that she wants desperately to be on NBC’s Parks and Recreation. So much that she wrote a blog post urging fans to tweet at and generally bother the writing staff and producers of the show to open up a guest spot for her.

    But what role could she play? Clarkson writes, “I am a bad actress but maybe I could play a bad actress! I would nail that!” I’m confident she could, after the cinematic disaster that was 2003’s From Justin to Kelly, filmed fresh off her American Idol victory. Check out the trailer below:

    And here’s Clarkson’s full plea to guest on Parks and Rec:

    Here’s the deal ….I really want to be on “Parks and Recreation”. It’s hilarious! I am a bad actress but maybe I could play a bad actress! I would nail that! I need to be in a scene with Ron Swanson. I love all of them but the trucker stache gets me every time. So, I’m gonna need all of my fans help please. Please tweet every member of the cast, the producers, the writers, security in that building, and anyone related to that show and tell them they need to have me on as a guest. Pretty pretty please!
