The singer might not have a long-term role in the singing show. It appears as though judges are already becoming weary of her.


According to Entertainment Daily, Katy Perry might have diva tendencies. On top of that, the star does things that aren’t aligned with the show's values.

Katy Perry might not become a favorite with American Idol executives. Radar Online’s insider explained that the bosses were keeping a close eye on the pop star.

Perry was reportedly paid $25 million to judge the reboot. The source revealed that the singer was being kept on a “short leash,” and producers were watching her every move.


It’s been reported that Idol bosses were worried that Perry’s antics could turn the show into a circus. They also don’t want the singer to view her role in the competition as an avenue to market her own ventures.

The source also stated that they didn’t want her to start acting like a diva. But those aren’t the only issues that the show’s bosses have with Perry.

“Everyone knows that Katy is being paid an extortionate amount for this role. But bosses have made it clear that this isn’t The Katy Show.”

The insider said that they kept reminding her that it was a family show and that she couldn’t be too sexy. The publication also claimed that Perry’s future with the singing competition was still uncertain.

“This is a big gig even for Katy, but executives are seeing it as a one-year test and they’ll all evaluate whether to move forward after the first season,” the source shared.


In an unrelated story, Perry is currently in a legal battle with Sister Rita Callanan. The nun is fighting to prevent the star from buying the Los Angeles convent that housed her sisterhood for over 40 years.


The other nun taking part in the legal battle is Sister Catherine Rose Holzman, 89. She, unfortunately, died in court earlier this month.

In a recent interview with the Daily Mail, Sister Rita insisted that the legal process had bankrupted her. Reports claimed that the nuns of the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary had sold the convent to a restaurateur named Dana Hollister.

But at the time of the sale, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles was already in the process of selling the property to Perry.
