Katy Perry Turns Down American Idol's $20 Million Offer

| by I Need My Fix

American Idol wanted Katy Perry very badly as a judge, so much so that they offered her $20 million to do it and she rejected the offer TMZ is reporting. Mariah Carey thinks she was pissed when they announced Nicki Minaj as a contender, but this will really piss Mimi off:

"Idol" pursued Perry relentlessly for weeks, eager to get her to sign on the dotted line. According to our sources, they started the offer at $18 million, but threw even more cash on the table … $20 MILLION for a one year contract!!!

Cash clearly wasn't the issue. Katy is too busy and didn't think it was the right career choice for her.
