Katy Perry Responds to 'American Idol' Salary Questions: 'I'm Really Proud'

Katy Perry was asked about her massive $25 million salary for her American Idol hosting gig.

“I’m sure that you hear in the news people talking about you and the whole ‘American Idol’ situation that’s come out. Does that ever irk you that people are talking about how much money you make or how much they paid you to be on that show, or are you like ‘Yup, I deserve every last penny’?” radio host Carolina Bermudez asked Katy.

“You know, I think there’s a couple ways to go about answering that question. One is, first and foremost, the news, the media. I kinda stopped doing a whole lot of print media and I only do radio and TV because context is wild these days. Nobody cares about intention. It’s all clickbait. It’s all a bunch of crap on the internet. I think ‘www’ stands for wild, wild, west,” Katy first answered, and then said, “But secondarily, I’m really proud that, as a woman, I got paid. And you know why? I got paid like more than pretty much any guy that’s been on that show. And, by the way, I love men. So I’m a paid woman and I’m ready for a beautiful man.”
