After it was announced that Katy Perry would get paid $25-million for being a judge on the re-boot of American Idol on ABC, she felt the need to defend her huge paycheck in a radio interview yesterday (was she defending or boasting?).
“I’m really proud that as a woman, I got paid. I got paid more than any guy that’s been on that show*. By the way, I love men, so I’m a paid woman, and I’m ready for a beautiful man…”
*Note: Katy’s $25 million does beat Mariah Carey’s $18 million payday back in 2012 (J-Lo $17m, Ryan $15m), but is still less than Simon Cowell’s rumored $45 million Idol payday.
