Katy Perry is continuing her Miley Cyrus impression. After that drastic haircut had her looking the part, the latest news is that Katy will be joining a reality singing competition show on network TV. Katy’s not trying to take Miley’s spot on “The Voice,” but she is joining the ABC reboot of “American Idol” coming in 2018. Katy announced the news on social media.
The “Bon Appétit” singer also shared that she was “honored and thrilled” to be joining the show. Katy wants to make some “dreams come true” and she seems to have an especially keen interest in “discovering diamonds in the rough.” Katy promised to bring it “back to the MUSIC” in her announcement tweet.
While it’s easy to assume that Katy will take over for Paula Abdul as the resident washed-up pop star, fans had mixed reactions to the news. While KatyCats celebrated their idol’s new gig, Taylor Swift fans had something else in mind. Several tweeted requests for someone to audition for the show singing “Bad Blood,” Taylor’s song that she claims isn’t about Katy but everyone knows is.
Check out Katy’s announcement below, plus some fan tweets about “Bad Blood.” And look out for a Swiftie trolling Katy next year on “American Idol.”
