The last time we saw Katy Perry on Saturday Night Live it was all about her boobs. This time, the “Teenage Dream” singer gets to branch out a little more — and her husband Russell Brand is helping manage her transition from musical guest to actual host.
“I’ve only ever hosted, like, dinner parties and birthday parties. This is a bit more than that,” she joked to MTV News. “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.”
Brand has turned into her very own TV coach, helping her figure out all the twists and turns that the week spent preparing for a live show brings.
“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,” she said.
Perry also prepped by watching Melissa McCarthy’s hilarious performance in October. “Well, I saw the Melissa McCarthy episode and I thought she did a great job,” she said. “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.”
