WATCH: Kristin Chenoweth Sings “Popular” To The Tune Of Anthony Weiner’s Penis

Broadway diva Kristin Chenoweth gave “Popular” another rousing remix on last night’s episode of The Tonight Show. The lyrics of the Stephen Schwartz song made famous by the Broadway musical “Wicked” were re-written for the singer to reflect America’s greatest guilty pleasure: Anthony Weiner’s penis.

The parody was written by Sharon Wheatley and Allen Kendall, and was also reportedly approved by Stephen Schwartz himself:

“We had to wait for a sign off from Stephen Schwartz since we re-wrote his famous lyrics, and then pray to the political Gods that Anthony Weiner would be as stubborn as he is promiscuous and not drop out of the race before it aired! Writing for Kristin is a dream come true. We’re so excited, and to get to go as her guest to The Tonight Show is about as great am intro to Hollywood as I could have asked for. “


Here are some of the lyrics, courtesy Broadway World:

The right kind of popular.
I’ll teach you to zip your fly,
You won’t be that guy
With a camera down his pants – ugh! –
I’ll teach you what tweets to tweet,
Something clean and sweet
We’ll make sure you get the chance to be…

The right kind of popular.
They’ll think you’ve become a monk,
Though they’ve seen your junk
Now you’ll play a different show
So let’s start,
‘Cause you’ve got an awfully long way to go.

    the headline should have been rewritten from

    “Kristin Chenoweth Sings “Popular” To The Tune Of Anthony Weiner’s Penis”


    “Kristin Chenoweth Sings about Anthony Weiner’s Penis to the tune of ‘Popular'”

    because as far as I know, Stephen Schwartz didn’t write anything that “sounds like” Anthony Weiner’s penis.. or anyone else’s for that matter.

    It’s like Queerty’s writers grab on to any little idea for a “joke” and don’t actually think it through before actually printing it.

    @MikeE: Thank you — you saved me the trouble of stating the obvious. Apparently someone at QUEERTY doesn’t understand the phrase “to the tune of”.
