Well, we can already scratch ONE name off the shortlist for potential judges on the revamped 12th season of American Idol!
In light of reports that producers were looking to switch up the ENTIRE current cast with potential big-names like Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, and Katy Perry, the latter has already spoken out about the possibility of her joining the reality competition, and reveals that she has turned the position down!
“People have reached out to me about the possibility of being involved, and it's not right for me yet. 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 fulfill those ideas. 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. How are you going to give a perspective when you haven't even lived that perspective?”
Hey! We can't say we blame her!
After the WHIRLWIND of her last two years, she certainly deserves a bit of a break!
Although we also have to admit - she would make an INCREDIBLE judge!
But that's okay!
She's shown how good she is when she guests! Perhaps we'll see her in that capacity once again real soon!
What do U think?? Who do U want to see on American Idol??
