WATCH: Ryan Seacrest Got Super Creepy With Katy Perry Coming Out of A Break On American Idol
Ryan Seacrest took things to a weird place during Sunday’s episode of American Idol.
Seacrest was leaning against the judges’ table when judge Katy Perry told him, “We’re on.” Instead of turning to the camera, Seacrest said to Perry: “Your mom’s pretty.” Yikes.
“My mom? Well, I hope the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” Perry replied, turning to the camera like — Hey, dude, this thing is on…please welcome back the audience and stop this madness.
“You are too, but you’re not a mom yet,” he said.
“Not yet,” Perry responded.
“Wanna talk about it?” Seacrest said in a low voice, to which Katy just said: “What?!”
That’s when things got particularly weird, as Seacrest turned to the camera and it became quite clear that he knew he was on air. Perry asked if they were on, and Seacrest replied that he believed so. The singer laughed nervously, and asked incredulously, “Are we professionals?”
Seacrest, of course, has had a couple of sexual harassment allegations brought against him, and he hasn’t lost any of his jobs.
