Kristin Chenoweth: Life Does Go On

Posted: Updated:

Kristin Chenoweth insists she's not a political person, but she couldn't resist poking fun at former Rep. Anthony Weiner of New York last week on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

The one-time disgraced politician returned to the public eye to run in the New York mayoral race. Then, he was hit with a second sexting scandal.

So, in order to help the former congressman out, Chenoweth rewrote the lyrics to "Popular,"a song she made famous in the musical "Wicked." While it was still about helping him become popular, this time it was about becoming 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," she sang. "I'll teach you what tweets to tweet, something clean and sweet. We'll make sure you'll get your chance to be popular. 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!"

Kristin joins Steve Edwards and Maria Sansone on Good Day L.A.
