Katy Perry turns down 'Idol's insane offer. Hey guys, welcome back to ClevverMusic. Happy Monday everyone! It looks like 'Wide Awake' singer Katy Perry is the latest big name pop star to get approached by American Idol. 27-year-old Katy reportedly was offered a cool $20 million for a spot on the judge's panel for the upcoming 12th Season of American Idol.
This surprises us because the rumors are saying that Nicki Minaj is still finalizing her deal to star on the show, and we already know Mariah is confirmed as a judge. So how would the show fare with 3 female judges? It's never been done before, and something tells us there is a reason for that. Catfight, much?
TMZ reported that the initial offer to Katy was $18 million, matching Mariah's salary. No doubt Katy said no, and they raised the stakes for a hopeful one-year-deal. But Katy reportedly stood her ground and declined the large sum. We know Katy doesn't need the big bucks, she's a huge star who just finished a world tour, but do you think she should have done it? The newly red-headed star would have been perfect for the show in our opinion, but we understand if she needs to extend her 'cat nap' a little longer. No word yet from Katy on Twitter, just lots of tweets about cooking classes and hitting up Disneyland with her BFF Shannon Woodward. Leave us a comment with your thoughts!
