Katy Perry - Perry Turns To Brand For Snl Hosting Advice

Katy Perry has sought advice from her husband Russell Brand ahead of her stint hosting U.S. comedy show Saturday Night Live this weekend (10Dec11).
The I Kissed a Girl hitmaker is preparing to make her presenting debut on the programme on Saturday and she's regularly calling her funnyman partner for tips following his success on the series earlier this year (11).
She 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 Perry with her preparations - comedy actress Melissa MCCarthy.
She 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."
