NINEMSN.COM.AU – Today host Karl Stefanovic was left speechless at the end of a flirty interview with US pop superstar Katy Perry.
The interview, that aired on the Nine Network this morning, also saw the singer proudly declare herself a feminist, saying she now understands what the term means.
“It just means that I love myself as a female and I also love men,” Perry said.
At the start of their chat the breakfast TV veteran explained to Perry that he was excited to have the rare opportunity to speak to her.
“We’ve got this entertainment dude (Today Entertainment Editor Richard Wilkins) who is, like really protective of his patch,” Stefanovic said, explaining that he usually just hosted the Today Show.
After a discussion that included Perry advising children to “stay focused in school” and being shown potential Aussie partners Stefanovic shook hands with the singer and said it was great to meet her.
“I’m so glad I could be your first,” Perry said to the shocked host.
After a few second of stunned silence Stefanovic managed to eke out the words “me too” before calling the pop star a “crazy woman”.
