Katy Perry has allegedly turned down a $20m (£12.6m) offer to join the judging panel of the American Idol.
Producers from the talent show “pursued Perry relentlessly for weeks”, and even increased their offer from $18m to $20m for a one-year contract, according to TMZ.
Perry reportedly made it clear that she was not interested in the role and that the fee offered was not the reason behind her decision.
Sources claimed that aside from the fact that her schedule made it impossible to do the show, the ‘Wide Awake’ singer simply didn’t see signing up for the series as the right career choice.
