“I need to feel the pulse of my own rhythm”

Katy Perry leaves ‘American Idol’

Appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” » On Monday night, the “Firework” hitmaker announced the news of her departure to an unsuspecting public.

After host Jimmy Kimmel asked the singer how long she planned to remain a judge on the hit ABC show, Perry said the upcoming 22nd season would be her last.

“Well, you know, this fall, in September, I’m going to do a huge music festival in Brazil called Rock in Rio. It’s really exciting,” she shared. “It’s very important to people all over the world, especially my Brazilian fans.”

“So I think this will probably be my last season of Idol,” added Perry, who has been a judge on the show alongside Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan since its revival in 2018.

After gasps from the audience, the mom-of-one continued: “I love Idol so much. It connected me to the heart of America. But I need to feel the pulse of my own rhythm.

The “Daisies” singer hinted at new music on the horizon, and perhaps a world tour to accompany it.

After Kimmel asked what the other judges’ reaction was to Perry’s surprise exit, the singer joked, “Well, they’ll find out tonight.”

Later that day, Perry confirmed his departure from the jury in an Instagram post.

“Let’s play two truths and a lie: 1. I beat @usher at Monopoly Deal. 2. I’m headlining Rock in Rio in September. 3. This is my last season on @americanidol,” she captioned the snaps.

Perry’s departure comes months after sources claimed she expressed a strong desire to leave “Idol” after six years on the show.

The 39-year-old has long been the subject of several online rants from die-hard fans of the show, who complained about the “California Gurls” singer’s provocative – and sometimes “rude” – coaching methods.

Perry also reportedly claimed that “Idol” producers intentionally edited footage to make her look like the “evil” judge.

“Katy feels like (producers) threw her under the bus,” a source told the Daily Mail in May. “She feels like her comments could have been deleted.”

Perry’s descent into the criticism quagmire began in April when the “Last Friday Night” singer apparently shamed his mother Sara Beth Liebe, 25, who left the show after saying she wanted to spend more time with her three children.

The “Dark Horse” singer also faced backlash when fans said she was waging “psychological warfare” against two contestants.
