She said no?!
According to some insiders, the producers of American Idol wanted Katy Perry, 27, on the show as a judge so bad that they offered the pop star a whopping $20 million dollars for a season-long contract. An insider shares,
“She was being hotly pursued. They really wanted her.”
Unfortunately, though, the “Wide Awake” singer declined the offer, making Mariah Carey still the highest-paid judge among all music competition shows in America.
A.I. executives are still searching for replacements for Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, and Randy Jackson, who will be vacating his seat this year to play the “mentor role.” With Mariah Carey officially on board, there are rumors about music stars Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban, Nick Jonas, and Pharrell Williams joining the show. Well, those are just rumors. As of now, nothing has been confirmed yet.
Well, probably judging other performers isn’t exactly Katy’s teenage dream.
