Katy Perry turned down a huge $ 20 million dollar payday…American Idol wanted Perry to judge on Idol and she turned them down. Perry was not interested and she had a packed schedule!!
Sources close to the production tell TMZ … “Idol” pursued Perry relentlessly for weeks, eager to get her to sign on the dotted line. According to our sources, they started the offer at $18 million, but threw even more cash on the table … $20 MILLION for a one year contract!!!
We’re told Katy made it clear … she was NOT interested and money wasn’t the issue.
Sources tell us … aside from the fact that Katy’s schedule made it impossible to do the show … she just didn’t think it was right career choice for her.
Mariah must be one pissed, $18 million judge.
Would Perry have made a good judge?
