American Idol Guest Judge Katy Perry Calls Simon Cowell an A**hole

Singer Katy Perry, who will be stepping in as a guest judge on American Idol this season, wants to be clear she thinks Simon Cowell is an a**hole – but that’s not a bad thing.


Katy “I Kissed a Girl” Perry will appear on the new season of American Idol, along with other guest celebrity judges such as Victoria Beckham, Shania Twain and Sheryl Crow. The rotating guest judges will serve as stand-ins for the recently departed Paula Abdul.

Speaking about her guest spot on American Idol, Katy Perry told she thinks she’ll end up being buddies with snarky judge Simon Cowell because “whenever I watch that show, as much as he’s an a**hole, he’s a very truthful, honest a**hole.”


“I’m not there to build them up. It’s weird, because I don’t want to break their hearts, but everyone knows someone who’s been doing karaoke and doing little gigs here and there, and nobody has told them that they can’t sing on pitch for, like, 15 years?”

Amen, Katy. Some of these people are seriously deluded about their singing talents. Of course, we think you might be one of them…

Katy Perry’s Caketastrophe

Katy Perry performed at the MTV Latin Music Awards last night for SOME reason, and didn’t fail to attract attention…this time of the Three Stooges kind. The “I Kissed A Girl” singer has a knack for PR stunts, but this one literally takes the cake! Katy popped out of a giant 15th anniversary cake to begin her set, sang her controversial song, and then…food malfunction. Snarkista thinks Katy had been up in the tequila, and got the bright idea to cake-dive. She then scraped cake off her bod and threw it at the audience. Unfortunately, Katy forgot that icing + ballet slippers = falling on your ass. Which she did, over and over. She couldn’t stop slipping! Katy did her best impression of a cartoon as she hit the floor vainly attempting to stand up. In the end…she had to crawl offstage. Good times.
