This weekend Katy Perry will be hosting Saturday Night Live, with musical guest Robyn, and she turned to her husband for Katy Perry SNL advice. Brand knows what he’s talking about, considering his successful hosting gig earlier this year.
Perry tells MTV News, “I’ve only ever hosted, like, dinner parties and birthday parties. This is a bit more than that. It’s not as intimidating when you get here because it’s a bit smaller than it looks on TV, and I’m up for a challenge, for something new. I love to be challenged… I married Russell Brand.
“My husband, of course, every day I call him and I’m like, ‘This happened,’ and he’s like, ‘I know what that means and here’s the next play-by-play for tomorrow,’ so he’s gotten me really prepared for this week, thankfully.”
And there’s another star who’s inadvertently helping get Katy Perry SNL get ready – Bridesmaids star and Emmy winner Melissa McCarthy. Perry adds, “I saw the Melissa McCarthy episode and I thought she did a great job. She’s so fun to watch and she really brings it, so that’s what I was soaking in this week – Melissa McCarthy and all of her nuances.”
