Well this has got to sting.

For a recent sit down with Variety, Capitol Music Group CEO and Chairman Steve Barnett spoke bluntly about the "tough conversations" he's had with Katy Perry following the disappointing sales associated with her latest album, Witness. Eek.

Although Witness has sold 840,000 copies worldwide, the LP failed to really resonate with fans. While some may be baffled to learn that Perry's new work hasn't taken off, Barnett isn't shocked one bit. In fact, he seems to know EXACTLY why the 33-year-old's music has fallen flat.

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

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!
