Like it or not, American Idol didn't get revived to make fun of people!

Aside from (occasionally) gifting the world the next musical superstar, the series was famous for rounds of auditions that highlighted the standout talent — which included the good, the bad, and the William Hungs.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour on Monday, showrunner Trish Kinane made it clear the show would not be mocking bad singers like it so famously had in the earlier seasons. She explained:

Katy Perry Shines In Silver To Talk Keeping Her Personal Life Private: 'It's Like Walking A Tightrope'

Katy Perry

Ah, the downsides of fame.

When asked at the TCAs on Monday night about the difficulty of keeping her personal life private, Katy Perry told reporters:

"Well, it's like walking a tightrope. You don't have to answer any question. You're not under oath. You don't have to leave bread crumbs all over social media if you don't want to. But some people do that and need that and it's a tool. Listen, all the fame stuff is just a bi-product of what I do, it's not what I sought out to do. I just wanted to tell stories and sing and connect with people."

Of course, this insight comes just days after the 33-year-old sparked speculation of her rekindled connection with ex Orlando Bloom. It can't be busy having really awesome people like us up in your personal life 24/7. LOLz!

Anywho, the Fireworks singer was shining bright like a diamond on the red carpet for the event (pictured above) — wearing a metallic silver dress with matching pumps and ear cuff. Werk!

todrick halls called taylor swift quasimodo

This explains why Taylor Swift said she "couldn't have asked for a better year"!

On Thursday, Todrick Hall popped by The Kid Kraddick Morning Show and opened up all about how his pal has changed since embracing her Reputation era. In fact, the YouTube sensation boldly claimed that "this is the happiest [he's] ever seen her." We mean, with a stadium tour and the Grammys slated for the New Year, we don't find this updated surprising.

However, it appears Taylor's low key relationship with Joe Alwyn has played a major factor in the blonde hitmaker's '17 giddiness. And, apparently before Joe was in the picture, Swift was turning into a "Quasimodo" for some other flame. On the ex that made TayTay miserable, the American Idol alum dished:

In case you forgot, Miz Ripa joined Live! 16 years ago, back when Regis was running the show. During her cohosting days with the Bronx native, everyone used to applaud the on camera chemistry they had. However, while speaking with The New York Times, Ripa revealed that Regis was pretty strict about not talking to each other off camera.

Apparently, the industry vet didn't want to waste good material if the cameras weren't rolling. The 46-year-old explained:
