Katy Perry was on ESPN College Game Day and it was weird

Posted on

Katy Perry

For those of you who don’t know, ESPN’s College Game Day is a morning show for college football fans to get primed for a full day of games. Since the show is filmed on campus of one of the schools playing that day, College Game Day isn’t just for commentary, but for the unique parade of hype and zeal that arises when you marry sports fandom with school spirit.

How much entertainment you get out of College Game Day is normally proportionate to how much you care about college and game days, but sometimes really strange things happen on the show. Like Katy Perry.

The pop star joined co-hosts Chris Fowler and Lee Corso for the show today in Oxford, Miss., where the undefeated Rebels were preparing to host the powerhouse Alabama Crimson Tide, and things got a little strange. Perry shared her game-picking strategy that relied mostly on the hotness of the team’s quarterback, pulled an Alabama elephant mask off Corso’s head and hurled it to the ground, and then began throwing corndogs everywhere. She also used the sexually suggestive nickname for the South Carolina Gamecocks.

You can watch the video footage over at ESPN, although it looks like the network edited out Perry’s reference to the ‘cocks.
