TV host and actor Mario Lopez exclaimed, “Let’s gem em TP!”
Balladeer Ginuwine figuratively sang Perry’s praises with, “Letsgochamp!!!!!”
The conversation quickly progressed from “PG-13” to “R,” as a number of female fans wanted to put in their application to be his new woman.
“Well sir, I’m 47 and single and a mother of two, non-problematic and YES, I’m shooting my shot!” one female fan purred on Instagram, while another commented, “let’s date i’m 30.”
Others posted selfies of themselves, with one of them writing: “This what 56, and single, and highly favored looks like….Blessed.”
