Katy Perry Turns Down $20 Million American Idol Offer
After hinting earlier this year that she may have been considering joining the infamous American Idol judges panel, Katy Perry has decided to give up the gwap and pass on the gig.
Not many people are in the position to pass on a multimillion dollar, one-year job offer, but it looks like Katy Perry doesn’t have that problem. The “Wide Awake” singer was offered $20 million to be an “American Idol” judge, but turned it down, TMZ reports.
According to sources, Perry, whose professional and personal life have been in the spotlight recently, was courted by “Idol” producers for the gig for quite some time. She was reportedly first offered $18 million for a one-year contract, with that number jumping up to $20 million. Still, she’s not biting.
“She was being hotly pursued,” a source also told Us Weekly about Perry’s “Idol” offer. “They really wanted her.”
However, it’s not all that surprising that Perry is passing on the gig. She talked about joining “Idol” with The Hollywood Reporter in July, saying, “People have reached out to me about the possibility of being involved, and it’s not right for me yet.”
Mariah signed for $18 milli….bet she won’t be excited to hear that they were about to drop $20 mil on Katy and her lady lumps!
