The pansexual singer and actress stars as Ashley O, an incredibly famous, lilac-haired popstar. Ashley is launching her own series of virtual assistant gadgets, Ashley Too.

As the trailer shows, the episode seems to deal with the AI gone bad trope, with Ashley Too showing a foul-mouthed, sassy personality.
