Katy Perry’s $25 million deal to be the lead judge on “American Idol” wasn’t just for her — she says she struck a blow for women everywhere who’ve been underpaid to do the same job as a man.
Katy was on NYC’S WKTU radio Tuesday and told “Cubby and Carolina Bermudez In the Morning” … she’s proud as hell her fat paycheck is more than “pretty much” any man made before her.
The pop star goes on to give a preview of what kind of judge she’s going to be, and said she’s the perfect fit for the show at the perfect time.
As we reported … Perry’s getting paid more than most of her big name ‘Idol’ predecessors. However, she’ll need a massive raise before she matches Simon Cowell’s reported $45 mil a year.
