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…
