Rivers Cuomo and Katy Perry tag team

Weezer’s move towards teenpop has taken yet another weird turn. In a recent interview with Buzznet, frontman Rivers Cuomo reported that he’s planning to work with pop starlet Katy Perry– someone who, we imagine, has destroyed a few sweaters in her lifetime.

Playing a word association game with Buzznet’s interviewer, Cuomo dropped the bombshell that he and Perry will be in the studio next week, recording material that could end up on her next album: “We’re writing together next week. Can’t wait!”

In other Weezer news, the band’s iTunes Pass launched yesterday at the iTunes Music Store. Anyone who pays $19.99 will get weekly installments of new Weezer goodies between now and November 24, starting with the band’s cover of the Clash’s “Should I Stay or Should I Go”. You also get the deluxe version of Raditude (due November 3 from Geffen), as well as bonus tracks, live recordings, remixes, behind-the-scenes footage, and the video for “(If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To”.

Also, remember when we told you about the Wuggie, the Weezer-branded snuggie? You can now preorder it from Weezer’s website, bundled together with Raditude. Doesn’t look like it comes with that little book light, though.
