DJ Khaled on ‘Live with Kelly:’ I’m a superstar

If you tuned in to “Live with Kelly!” on Monday morning, you probably saw two familiar Miami faces.

Christian Slater was the guest co-host on the ABC program, and the special guest was none other than DJ Khaled, who played music throughout the show.

Khaled, wearing a black satin jumpsuit, also sat down with the perky hostess and the “Heathers” star to discuss his new album, “Major Key.”

Ripa said that interviewing the omnipresent music producer made her “officially cool” in the eyes of her children.

Asked what the title meant, Khaled answered: “I got the keys to successes, more wins .... I am definitely special-cloth alert. Definitely a young icon.”

OK, so the 40-year-old — who has collaborated with such famed rappers as Lil Wayne, Akon, Drake and Trick Daddy — is not the modest man on the planet. But like he said, he’s blessed.

“We all blessed — we have life.”

As for what makes the Snapchat aficionado tick professionally, well, he’s just skilled at what he does.

“Some DJ’s are like a jukebox,” said Khaled, who is expecting his first child with fiancée, clothing designer/stylist Nicole Turk. “I keep the crowd moving. I like to entertain. I’m a superstar. When I leave ‘Live with Kelly!’ you’re going to know my name. ”
