Conan O'Brien likes being a rock star almost as much as doing comedy, but he recently joked that a bikini-clad fan may be carrying his illegitimate baby.

After playing guitar at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Tennessee Saturday, O'Brien told Rolling Stone what was awesome about being a rocker.

"Performing for women in bikinis — it's just mindblowing," O'Brien said, adding that he waded into a crowd of fans. "The women are in string bikinis. We're all hugging. I may have conceived a baby in that crowd. We'll find out because it got crazy in there. So nine months from now, there may be a Conan baby from Bonnaroo that I know nothing about. It was completely accidental — just because the moshpit got a little out of hand."

Another aspect he likes isplaying with pal Jack White, the guitar genius and frontman for the White Stripes and The Raconteurs.

 "My job one is to be funny," he said. "That's always the most important thing. But every now and then I get to play a rockabilly tune with Brian Setzer or get to play with Jack White — it's fantasy camp. This whole tour, sometimes I feel like it's Make a Wish. Nobody's told me that I'm dying. They're letting me have this tour and then afterward they're going to tell me."
