It’s not everyday that someone turns down a $20 million paycheck, but Katy Perry has reportedly done just that.
The Wide Awake singer has snubbed an offer to join Mariah Carey on the American Idol judging panel, according to multiple media outlets.
Apparently the show’s producers were so keen to get the California Gurl that they offered her $2 million more than Carey who’s the highest paid judge on a TV show in that genre.
If she accepted the offer the heart-stopping sum would have been just for a one-year contract.
But it seems that the 27-year-old Teenage Dream singer, who recently split from lady killer John Mayer,  has no desire to be on the successful TV show.
Meanwhile, Randy Jackson – who has been a judge since the show first aired ten years ago — has decided to become a mentor instead.
