Andy Cohen tells Jimmy Kimmel about the night Britney Spears pulled him up on stage and appeared to have no idea who he was.
The "Watch What Happens Live" host stopped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Thursday night, where he laughed off that viral video of the pop star inviting him up on stage at her Radio Music Hall performance in July -- seemingly without knowing who he was. While he discussed the moment almost immediately afterward on his SiriusXM channel, Radio Andy, the tale is now a well-polished anecdote.
"So basically, they get me out of the audience, and then I'm crawling around on stage, she's dragging me around -- which was really fun for me, I have to say -- and the audience seemed to really like it and respond to me," Cohen told Jimmy Kimmel Thursday night. "But the joke was that she had no idea who I was."
Back in July, after Cohen crawled across the stage in bondage gear, Britney shouted to her audience, "I think you all know who this is! Give it up for him!"
"Was that a joke, or did she not know who you were?" Kimmel asked Cohen on Thursday.
"That is what I have been trying to figure out for six or eight weeks," Cohen replied before Kimmel played the hilarious video for the audience.
"That does not denote to me that she has any idea!" Cohen said laughing. "However -- and this is why I'm confused -- she then said as she was walking away, 'He's so loud.' And in truth, I have modulation issues; however, I had not said anything on the stage, which makes me think maybe she does know me?"
"Yeahhh, no -- she doesn't know you," Kimmel quipped. "I'm not even sure she knew she was in New York, to be honest."
"By the way, I'm good with that!" Cohen added. "I don't need Britney to know me. She's Britney, bitch."
