If the folks behind Parks and Recreation were wondering who their No. 1 super-fan is, they might have their answer: pop star Kelly Clarkson.
In a post on her official blog Monday, the 29-year-old "Since U Been Gone" singer and erstwhile American Idol champ launched a campaign to land herself a guest spot on the critically acclaimed NBC sitcom. "Here's the deal ....I really want to be on Parks and Recreation," she writes. "It's hilarious!"
It's so hilarious that Clarkson is imploring her own legion of fans to take up her cause. "So, I'm gonna need all of my fans help please," she says. "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!"
But just because Clarkson dreams of acting on the show doesn't mean she has visions of an Emmy dancing in her head. "I am a bad actress but maybe I could play a bad actress!" she suggests. "I would nail that!"
As for who she'd most love to share the screen with, it isn't the series' big names like Amy Poehler or Rob Lowe -- but rather Nick Offerman, who plays Parks and Rec's resident mustachioed Libertarian Ron Swanson.
"I need to be in a scene with Ron Swanson," Clarkson enthuses. "I love all of them but the trucker stache gets me every time."
Clarkson did ask her fans nicely (we counted three instances of the word "please" in her brief call to arms), and her idea of playing a bad actress to hide her bad acting is kind of meta-genius -- so we're really pulling for her. If there's anything a small (fictional) town like Pawnee, Ind., needs, it's an American Idol star to champion it.
