Is Katy Perry out of ‘American Idol’ for acting like a cat?
Do we smell Catwoman on the prowl? Our fave American Idol judge Katy Perry took her feline persona a tad too seriously and Twitter is purring, growling, and hissing about it!
In a playful, but admittedly bizarre moment on American Idol, Katy donned a sleek leather suit, channeling her inner Catwoman. Fellow judges Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie had the banter rolling, with Richie joking about Catwoman in their midst. Quick as a cat, Bryan punned her as “Katy Purry”.
Katy, the “Smile” sensation, leaped into action, showing off her paws and declaring herself ready to prowl for talent.
But wait, she didn’t stop there! The crowd went wild as she playfully pawed at Luke Bryan’s shoulder. The video, posted on Idol’s official Instagram, became an overnight sensation.
Some fans, however, were not amused. With a storm of tweets raining down, they vented their frustration at Katy’s antics, calling them excessive and demanding her removal from the show.
A flash in the pan? Hardly. Perry has been facing the heat for her coaching style throughout season 21. Earlier this season, when contestant Sara Beth Liebe left the show to spend time with her kids, Katy raised eyebrows for what some felt was a tad of mom-shaming. Katy’s been dubbed everything from “ridiculous” to “rude”. She’s certainly ruffling feathers!
Katy’s not the only one on the radar. Fans have expressed dismay over Luke Bryan as well, and some are even hankering for a full judge panel shake-up. But has Katy really rubbed people the wrong way, or is this just a storm in a teacup?
Behind the scenes, rumor has it that Katy feels let down. An inside source whispered to Daily Mail that Katy believes American Idol producers haven’t had her back. She’s hinted at them editing footage to portray her as the “nasty” judge. It’s like someone let the cat out and locked the door!
Could this be the last time we see Katy on the judge’s chair? After six purr-fect years on Idol, she’s achieved pop icon status. Maybe she’s had her fill of chasing mice around?
But here’s the catch. A staggering twenty-five million dollars per season is what she’s reported to be earning. Would she really walk away from that kind of kitty?
American Idol’s finale saw Katy dodge questions about her future with the show. Even Lionel Richie chimed in, cautioning her against talking about her possible departure. Is she ready to hang up her judging hat or will she bounce back for more?
Cat and mouse
Katy’s fans love her vibrant and effervescent personality, but is it time for her to let another cat prowl the American Idol stage? After a whirlwind season with Katy’s feline frolics, snappy comments, and endless talent, the jury is still out.
As the curtain falls on this season of American Idol, we can’t help but wonder where Katy will land on her feet. With a career as colorful as a peacock and as explosive as a firework, has she had enough of judging?
It’s been a wild ride, but what’s next for our Catwoman? Is Katy Perry ready to bid adieu or will she purr her way back to our good graces?
