Katy Perry Isn’t Hiding Her Excitement About Making Bank on ‘American Idol’

If you don’t already know, Katy Perry is going to be a judge on the rebooted new season of American Idol, and girl is making BANK! Per TMZ, the singer is reportedly making $25 million — yes, you read that right, 25 MILLION. And, man, is she excited to talk about that payday. “I got paid more than any guy that’s been on that show,” she told KTU’s Cubby and Carolina in the Morning

Speaking of men on American Idol, Simon Cowell made his reputation by being sometimes unnecessarily mean while being a judge. So will Katy follow in his footsteps or do her own thing? “I’m gonna be the same judge I’ve always been,” she shared. “And I’m not judge-y — I am constructive criticism. And … the reality is I am polite but firm.” The single singer also brought up the fact that she is ready for a new romance. “So I’m a paid woman, and I’m ready for a beautiful man,” she smiled.

Katy was also asked about those rumors if “I Kissed a Girl” was in fact about Miley Cyrus. “There were so many muses to that song,” she said, “And also when I was that age I was just like a little s**t stirrer.” 

Hmm, seems like she still isn’t addressing if in fact “I Kissed a Girl” is about Miley. What do you think?
