Entertainment TV Katy Perry & Richard Simmons Pose Together on VMAs Red Carpet The celebs looked giddy during their meetup before the awards show By Kathy Ehrich Dowd Published on August 25, 2013 08:55 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Photo: Kevin Mazur/WireImage Is Katy Perry now Sweatin’ to the Oldies? If this awesomely random photo is any indication, we think the answer is yes. Perry, 28, and perennially amped-up exercise guru Richard Simmons, 65, posed for this shot on the red carpet of the MTV Video Music Awards outside Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center Sunday evening. The ’80s cardio king – who looked ready to jazzercise in a bedazzled orange tank top, lime green exercise pants and sneakers – made no secret of his affection for the pop singer as he kissed her hand while she sported a huge grin. What could the pair possibly have been discussing? Perhaps Simmons was simply charming Perry into revealing where she will close out the show when she performs her new single, “Roar”, from an undisclosed location.
