Katy Perry Working With Ex to Bring American Idol Back to Life
Although Katy Perry awarded what Diplo would later call the “bronze medal in sex Olympics” when asked in an interview with James Corden to rank her three ex lovers—John Mayer, Orlando Bloom, and Diplo—in order from best lover to worst, the pair are teaming up to revive American TV classic, American Idol.
Recording 555 episodes, American Idol original judges, Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, and Ryan Seacrest are ready to extinguish the show, yet Katy Perry wants to bring the show back to life. Perry earned $19 million to become a judge on the show in May, with Diplo performing work behind the scenes: “I’ve also been talking to American Idol on the side to try to help them with the ABC network reboot with Katy,” Diplo told Billboard.
Whether the show will continue to air, or will alternatively receive a major makeover is yet to be seen.
