Katy Perry 'proud' of $25M 'American Idol' paycheck


The "Firework" hitmaker explained that the rivalry came about as a result of a contract dispute involving backing dancers. And I texted all of them-because I'm very close with them-and I said, 'Look, just FYI: I'm about to start, I want to put the word out there.' And they said, 'All right, we're going to talk to management about it.' And they did. They need to get big ratings in order for the show to get its money back on it, so anticipate a heck of a lot of promotion.

During the interview, Perry also addressed her reported large salary to sign on as a judge for the revival of American Idol.

"I tried to talk to her about it and she wouldn't speak to me", she said.

She then went on to muse about karma and the law of cause and effect, but ultimately ended with a message of peace: "What I want to say is that I'm ready for that BS to be done", Perry said.

Karma. Huh? Who knows what that is specifically referring to, but she wasn't done yet with Swift and her supposed "karma".

Katy recently dropped the third song from her new album Witness, titled Swish Swish.

Meanwhile, Perry's latest track 'Swish Swish' is rumoured to be a retaliation track aimed at Swift.

After the Rolling Stone interview, Perry tweeted, "Watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing". I'm like, 'Okay, cool.

Donna has to reverse the damage with classes on how to work out differences, even if you don't like the person you have to deal with.

She continued: "But, what I wanna say is that I'm ready for that B.S.to be done".

"The internet can be a little ruthless as far as fan bases go, but I think that the greatest thing we can do is just unite and love on each other, like no barriers, no borders". So now I have to avoid her. "I'd tell them 'you may not like this girl, but you can learn to behave in a respectful manner". That's not to say they would go back to being friends or collaborate on music, but it would just be nice to have this no longer be a discussion.

This may or may not be where Swift and Perry's narratives diverge.
