Britney Spears got freaky with Andy Cohen on stage during her show at Radio City Music Hall but the singer may not have known exactly who the “Watch What Happens Live” host is.
Cohen is brought on stage for Spears’ “Freakshow” segment of the show. Plenty of S&M antics ensue including Spears’ dancers tying him up, instructing Cohen to crawl on the ground and getting whipped by Spears herself.
At the end of the performance, Spears tells the crowd “I think you all know who this is. Give it up for him.” Cohen gets on his knees and bows down to her multiple times.
Some people took Spears’ comment to mean that she wasn’t sure who Cohen was.

On Cohen’s Sirius XM radio show “Radio Andy” he seemed unfazed that the pop princess may not have recognized him.
“My take on this is first of all, why would Britney know my name? She’s Britney, bitch. Like, I have no expectation,” Cohen says.”I am a mortal and Britney is Britney. I don’t [think she knows who I am]. She gave me what I want. I don’t need that Britney would consider me, that she would really know who I am. I like it that she’s like, ‘I think you know who this is, give it up for him.’ I mean, it’s pretty funny.”
“I got Mariah’d a little bit, it’s so funny,” he added.
During the segment, Spears also gives him a T-shirt and appears to sign it. Cohen admits that Spears didn’t actually sign the shirt but that didn’t stop his excitement.
“She gave me what I want, I don’t need for Britney to even really know who I am,” Cohen says. “Britney is such an icon, I just feel like I’m not worthy of her knowing my name.”
