Singer Katy Perry is set to host the December 10 episode of "Saturday Night Live" with musical guest Robyn.

"There were a lot of [skit] pitches about my boobs," Perry told Access Hollywood on Thursday. "I was cool about that, but I'm not sure all of it [got] in. So we'll see."

Perry appeared on the show as a musical guest in 2010 in an episode hosted by Amy Poehler where she made a tongue-in-cheek reference to the banning of a "Sesame Street" segment that featured her wearing a skimpy dress, trying to coax Elmo to play with her.

"I'm SO excited 2 announce I'll be HOSTING Saturday Night Live Dec. 10! This is the cherry on top and @robynkonichiwa is part of it," Perry wrote on her official Twitter page on November 21.

Perry said she got a lot of advice from her husband, comedian Russell Brand who hosted the show last season.

"Of course my husband [has given me advice]," Perry continued. "Every day I'm checking in with him and he's giving me the next day move on what I should do or what's gonna go on or how I should act."

The pop singer made headlines this week when she debuted a shorter, blonde hair style.

"I got off a tour and I wanted to try something new, so I cut it off," Perry explained. "And I went blond. I feel like I'm 16 all over again, because this is the same haircut I had when I was 15 and 16, so everyone's calling me [by my real name], Katy Hudson right now -- my family at least."

Perry is not the first singer to host the long-running sketch comedy series. Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake have hosted a few times. Queen Latifah and Ludacris have also hosted.

The "E.T." singer's announcement comes fresh off her big win at the American Music Awards on Sunday where she was given a special award for being the first female pop artist with five No. 1 hit singles off one album -- "Teenage Dream." Check out the full list of AMA winners).

Katy Perry's "Saturday Night Live" episode is set to air at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC. Watch a preview trailer below.
