Fans are hoping that Katy Perry can bring American Idol back to glory. She is definitely doing everything in her power to make sure that the show is impressive. Katy is the lead judge on a panel that includes Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie as well.
Katy claimed that she and Luke are like brother and sister, and Lionel is a sort of uncle to them, but not in a good way at all.
‘We respect him just about as much as his kids respect him. Which is not a lot,’ she revealed.
Maybe this remark was a bit mean, considering that Lionel is not thrilled at all about the fact that his daughter Sofia Richie is romantically involved with Scott Disick.

Katy’s comment somehow confirmed the fact that Lionel’s kid aka Sofia does not show him respect.
Katy dissed Lionel even more after this harsh remark saying that the music icon doesn’t critiquer the contestants as he should.
According to Katy, Lionel uses some much too old examples such as Michael Jackson or Whitney Houston and these are basically ‘TED talks.’
‘We’re ruining his legacy’ Katy joked. ‘He’s an uncle you want in your house telling you telling you all these wonderful historical stories, and he does have some tea, but we can’t put that on TV,’ she added.
Unfortunately, Katy didn’t address any rumors regarding her love life, especially her possible reunion with her ex, Orlando Bloom. The two of them were seen vacationing in Italy last month, and there are lots of other signs that seem to hint to a reconciliation.
