Katy Perry on judging ‘American Idol’: ‘It’s not right for me’


Katy Perry has slammed off rumours that she might join American Idol’s judging panel.

The singer was named alongside Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj in recent reports as potential replacements for Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler or Randy Jackson if they leave American Idol.

Perry explained to The Hollywood Reporter that she connot commit the time to a tv show like Idol.

“People have reached out to me about the possibility of being involved, and it’s not right for me yet,” she said. “It’s a real commitment to be on one of those shows… I have ideas for two or three big, creative things, and I want to be able to fulfil those ideas.”

The ‘Wide Awake’ singer went on to say that she hopes the talent show’s bosses select experienced musicians if a change is made to the judging panel.

“I find it completely hilarious when they hire people that are not current in music and haven’t been for a decade or longer. Or if they’re not even in music” Perry added.

“How are you going to give a perspective when you haven’t even lived that perspective?”

American Idol returns to Fox in 2013.
