TMZ isn’t always accurate but this report sounds plausible: Katy Perry turned down a $20 million one year offer to be on “Idol.”
She’s one of the biggest current pop stars with a string of hits under her belt. Why wouldn’t “Idol” want her? But Perry obviously has plenty of other options to keep her career aloft. “Idol” is not one she is going to consider.
That $20 million would be $2 million more than what Mariah Carey is reportedly getting paid.
- And in other TMZ-related “Idol” news, liar/ousted “Idol” contestant Jermaine Jones met up with his buddies on tour. For some reason, I don’t care.
- Phillip Phillips wins our “Best of the Big A” favorite Georgia reality star. If you want to see Phillips live for free Saturday, Sept. 1, he’ll be at Centennial Olympic Park from 6:30 to 7:20 p.m.
- The Republican National Convention entertainment includes Danny Gokey and Ayla Brown (whose Dad is a Senator from Massachusetts) on Wednesday and Taylor Hicks on Thursday.
- Mandisa, who has done very well for herself on the Christian pop charts, was on “Good Morning America” this morning chronicling her 120-pound weight loss.
