Well this comes as a bit of a surprise, doesn’t it? According to new reports, chart topper Katy Perry has reportedly turned down a $20 million offer to be the newest “American Idol” judge. I mean, why? She is on top of her game right now and to be honest, I would think she would be a pretty entertaining judge, especially with the crazy outfits she would wear. Here’s what we’re reading:
“American Idol” desperately wanted Katy Perry to fill one of its vacant judge’s seats, so much so, they offered her $20 MILLION … but she she still turned it down … TMZ has learned.
Sources close to the production tell TMZ … “Idol” pursued Perry relentlessly for weeks, eager to get her to sign on the dotted line. According to our sources, they started the offer at $18 million, but threw even more cash on the table … $20 MILLION for a one year contract!!!
We’re told Katy made it clear … she was NOT interested and money wasn’t the issue.
Sources tell us … aside from the fact that Katy’s schedule made it impossible to do the show … she just didn’t think it was right career choice for her.
Actually, this makes Katy look like a smart girl who is in fact more interested in making good music than being a reality television show judge, but still, being part of Idol would be a pretty good step in the right direction for her (although it’s not like she’s desperate for it). I mean, look at the wonders it’s done for Jennifer Lopez‘s career. What do you guys think? Should Katy have accepted the offer?
