Rap superstar Eminem was left bemused when confronted by British comedienne Kathy Burke backstage at a TV show - because she was dressed up as a male teenager and called him 'Eminemenimemem'.

Burke was behaving in the style of her obnoxious teen character PERRY from the BBC television series HARRY ENFIELD AND CHUMS, for an appearance on the channel's music programme Top Of The Pops.

She stayed in character when she bumped into the STAN star, who was also in that show.

Burke remembered, "I said in Perry's voice, 'It's Eminememinemem.'

"I think he thought I was some kid allowed out from the children's home for the night."
