Meanwhile, Katy Perry interjected: “As long as it’s not four times a night, seven days a week.”
Bryan didn’t appear to share the “California Gurls” singer, and looked shocked at Richie’s confession.
And while he may not be performing “all night long” anymore, his longtime girlfriend Lisa Parigi seems satisfied.
