AMERICAN Idol fans have expressed being furious as Katy Perry’s future on the show is revealed after the judge hinted at “sad” career news.
Fans of the Dark Horse singer were recently left upset after Katy, 38, shared a music video for an up-and-coming artist.
Now, American Idol has announced that Katy will rejoin fellow judges Luke Bryan, 47, and Lionel Richie, 74, for the seventh season of the singing competition on ABC.
Viewers had previously called for the reality competition series to fire the judge as they “can’t stand her” anymore.
Katy received much fan backlash throughout the most recent season of American Idol for her comments to contestants, her wardrobe, and her behavior.
Fan reactions continued to be the same after the announcement was made with many viewers rushing to Twitter to share their opinions on the singer’s return to the show.
One person tweeted: “No one’s excited,” while another added: “literally crickets.”
A second Idol fan asked: “This is what we deserve?” as a third emphatically replied: “NOOOOO.”
A fourth person simply stated: “We lost.”
While another writer remarked: “You can’t find a single Katy Perry fan on this planet that wanted her to return.”
Katy’s fans have been annoyed by many of the singer’s recent career moves.
On Sunday, the TV personality took to Instagram to promote Michael J. Woodward’s latest single, Face.
Many fans ignored the promotion and begged the Teenage Dream singer to release music of her own.
They said the same thing when Katy promoted another artist’s song last week.
The star has yet to respond to fans’ concerns.
Katy’s most recent album, Smile, was released in 2020.
Since then, career-wise, the pop singer has been focusing on her shoe collection and De Soi, a non-alcoholic sparkling drink company she co-founded.
In her personal life, she gave birth to her daughter, Daisy, with Hollywood actor, Orlando Bloom, 46.
NEW MUSIC NEEDED
Fans pleaded with the singer to release new tunes.
“Stop sharing people’s songs start sharing your news,” one fan commented.
“WHERE THE F*** ARE THE LEAD SINGLE OF KP6???? PLEASE,” another said, using a crying emoji.
One demanded: “GIVE US NEW MUSIC.”
“We want new song from YOU,” a third agreed.
A fourth said: “This is so annoying omg.”
“We want you back!!! You’re Katy Perry,” stated a fifth.
Another fan commented: “Girl, this insta is for u and YOUR music not for other people.”
“What you are doing with your career is unbelievable,” a seventh argued.
Last month, Luke Bryan defended his co-star Katy and claimed she gets picked on after she was continually slammed by many viewers.
Luke jumped to her defense when asked if he thinks American Idol fans have been too harsh in their criticism of her.
“Katy Perry’s been dealing with stuff like that her whole career,” Luke said during an interview at the Country Music Association Fest.
“We all get it…. I mean we’re judging kids that people at home fall in love with…. We’re not gonna bat 1,000 as judges.”
He continued: “I think we get set up. As judges, you know, we kinda fall on the sword a lot of times. And get set up to where people can get very vocal on socials and stuff.
“Katy gets picked on for going out and trying to have fun making a TV show,” Luke added.
“You can’t be so safe in the moment that you’re so homogenized, you can’t ever go for a joke. Or go for a fun moment. Sometimes, you just gotta say stuff. It may be my year, next year.”
Luke claimed that entertainers are “conditioned” and “calloused” to backlash.
He then said of his co-star: “It makes me appreciate her even more, just how big of a scale she’s had to deal with that her whole career.”
Throughout season 21 of American Idol, Katy was accused of “mom-shaming” and being “condescending” toward various contestants.
Back in April, many viewers felt she acted “rudely” toward singer Wé Ani in particular.
