Katy Perry is the first (and so far only) person to have officially signed on to judge the next wave of desperate singing superstars on ABC’s reboot of American Idol. It was rumored she was earning a pretty penny for it. Actually, it was more like 2,500,000,000 pennies (aka $25 million). Sources told TMZ that ABC was desperate to sign a name, and Katy had all the leverage in negotiating a huge pay check. Katy recently confirmed the rumors were true about her Idol paycheck.
Last night Katy Perry appeared in The Late Late Show’s Carpool Karaoke segment with James Corden. Katy spent most of her time talking and not singing. The biggest talking point on Katy’s promo tour for her upcoming album Witness has been about her ongoing feud with Taylor Swift. Katy played coy with Jimmy Fallon about whether her latest song Swish Swish is about Taylor Swift, but with James Corden, she gave a detailed statement about her mean girl bully.
Taylor Swift just rang up her bank and told them to cancel the hell out of Ruby Rose’s snake squad check. This past week, Ruby made a bid for the “Taylor’s New Bestie” role in the squad that’s usually held by a closeted lesbian supermodel. Perhaps someone told Ruby that she was laying it on a little thick with all of the Katy Perry hatred? After all, the first rule in the squad handbook is to always “K.I.S.S.” (Keep It Subtle, Stupid!).
Katy Perry is finally experiencing a senior slump (she managed to make it past sophomore and junior), and her latest singles aren’t capturing the world’s imagination like she’s come to expect. Hillary Clinton couldn’t guarantee sales and neither could that bizarro video which only a cannibal cop could love.
So, she’s using the past to push the third song from her upcoming record, Witness, HARD. And by HARD, I mean she’s doing everything but calling the song “Taylor Swift Is An Evil, Fake-Ass Bitch Bully And We’re Still Fighting.” E! tells us that Katy went on The Tonight Show to promote her song Swish Swish, and Jimmy Fallon made sure to go with the one giant talking point her publicist gave him:

While promoting her upcoming album Witness earlier this month, Katy Perry strongly implied there would be no bitchy follow-up to Taylor Swift’s Katy Perry-hating song Bad Blood. It was almost as if Katy had matured out of their tired middle school fight. Hahahaha, how silly and naive we all were! But of course Katy still wants to scratch at Taylor.
Miley Cyrus recently admitted during an appearance on the Cubby and Carolina Show (via Vanity Fair) that Katy Perry is her longest friendship. And how did their friendship start? According to Miley, it started after Katy wrote I Kissed A Girl about her.
