Holy Shit! Katy Perry Is Making HOW MUCH From American Idol??

| Filed under: American IdolRyan SeacrestKaty PerryBusiness BlitzGIFs

Katy Perry is getting a fat paycheck!

Katy Perry's American Idol deal is even bigger than we would have thought!

As we previously reported, the Swish Swish songstress signed on to be an American Idol judge on its new network ABC.

Now, it's being said the 32-year-old is pocketing $25 million, according to TMZ's sources!

They're reporting Katy had the upper hand when it came to negotiations as they wanted to have someone on board ahead of their ABC Upfronts! One source spilled:

"Katy had all the leverage. If ABC ended up announcing the show without a judge, they'd be screwed."

Meanwhile, the network is still trying to sign Ryan Seacrest on, who was making $15 million at the peak of the show.

We can only imagine how much he could pull in now, but we have a feeling it won't be near Katy's big payday!

Hallelujah! Saturday Night Live Recycles Kate McKinnon's Legendary Cold Open To Spoof Donald Trump! Highlights HERE!

Just like they did with Kate McKinnon's Hillary Clinton after the election, Saturday Night Live gave us a chilling, calm cold open last night — Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump leading the way with Hallelujah!!

It all feels right, maybe; Baldwin may not be back next year to portray Trump — hell, The Donald may not be in office by the time the next season starts — and so it's critical to give a good going-away message…

Katy Perry Joins Forces With Nicki Minaj To Seemingly Throw Shots At Taylor Swift In Swish Swish! Listen!

We're just not here for this.

On Thursday, Katy Perry surprised fans by dropping a new song, titled Swish Swish, which features Nicki Minaj. Of course, since both Miz Perry and the Anaconda rapper have had feuds with Taylor Swift, many fans believe this track is meant to be a clap back directed at the blonde hitmaker.

Not to mention, the Chained To The Rhythm performer all but promised a response track to TayTay's Bad Blood during her recent EW interview. And let's talk about the lyrics in Swish Swish. At one point, Katy sings:

"Don't you come for me/No, not today/you're calculated/I've got your number/Because you're a joke/and I'm a courtside killer queen."

Ugh. These lyrics are so embarrassing. Although, Nicki's shots at T.Swizzle aren't much better, as she raps:

"Don't be tryna double back/I already despise you/All that fake love you showin'/couldn't even disguise you."

Still, the 34-year-old could just be talking about her longtime feud with Remy Ma, as she also mentioned "silly rap beefs" during the song. Now, we might hate the single, but we feel like you should take a listen to it anyway (below)…

Katy Perry Surprises Fans At Art Museum As A Live Art Installation — Watch!

| Filed under: Silly!Katy PerryHarper's BazaarArtsy Fartsy

Katy Perry is a work of art.

Katy Perry is seriously going all out for Witness promo!

She's so excited and willing, in fact, that she's actually agreed to be a live art installation at the Whitney Museum!

The singer hid under a table in a small room with her head poking through and covered with a cloche. Harper's Bazaar's Derek Blasberg was there to facilitate, and went around asking unsuspecting museum goers if they would be interested in viewing an art exhibit by artist Katheryn Hudson (Katy's real name).

The best part is when the museum goers freak out when Katy starts talking. LOLz!

Watch all the fun for yourself (below)!
