Katy Perry battled through illness to perform at a naval academy in Maryland on Friday and even pulled one lucky sailor up on stage for a kiss.

The pop star fell sick with a nasty cold this week, but she refused to let her ill health halt her concert commitments, and took to the stage at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland to perform for troops as planned.
Perry, 27, dressed in a sailor's uniform for the show and she pulled one gig-goer out of the crowd to join her on stage.

She asked the man, who called himself Officer Beasley, about his age and when he replied, "20," the star teased him: "Is this legal? Well I'm a little bit older than you, but that's alright -- I can be your Mrs Robinson."
Perry then warned him about her cold, adding, "Now Beasley, listen ... I have to warn you, if I told you I had a cold, if I told you I flew here with a 101.8 degree temperature, would you still be alright with (kissing me)?"

She then suggested they create the "iconic pose" seen in a famous 1945 photograph of a sailor kissing a girl on V-J Day in New York City's Times Square, before he tipped her backwards and kissed her on the lips to deafening applause from the audience.
Perry subsequently posted a picture of the gig on her Twitter.com page with the caption, "Played for some Navy guys & gals tonight. I think my fever broke on stage from all the sea-men ..."
