During the Super Bowl halftime show, Chinese Internet users were abuzz about a woman called “Fruit Sister.”

Sounds mysterious, but you already know who she is. “Fruit Sister,” or “shui guo jie,” is what people in China call Katy Perry — referring to her tendency to wear fruit costumes and bring giant fruit with her on stage.

In the past, the pop star has performed in sparkly watermelon-cup bras, sung while holding a large inflatable strawberry and even burst out of a giant banana.

She’s also talked about growing and eating her own fruit, so it’s a pretty fair nickname.

But “Fruit Sister” isn’t the only Western celeb to get an interesting Chinese alias. Here is a list of some popular celebrities and their endearing nicknames given to them by Chinese people.

Jennifer Lopez: Lord Of Butt

Benedict Cumberbatch: Curly Blessing

Nicki Minaj: Numbing Spicy Chicken

Adam Levine: Flirty Adam

Mariah Carey: Cow Sister

Ariana Grande: Little Cow
