Katy Perry admits she turned down talent show judging role
Pop sensation Katy Perry has revealed that earlier this year she said no to a job offer that would have involved her "judging other people".
Speaking to television host Graham Norton, the 'Part Of Me' hitmaker admitted that while she has appeared on The X Factor as a guest judge in the past she simply doesn't feel ready to take on a role as a permanent panelist so turned the exciting opportunity down:
"There's not actual paper contracts, but people have been interested in me judging other people. I would do it but I'm just not ready for it yet. Maybe in the future, I would love to."
During the interview, which will air tonight (June 8) at 10.35pm BST, Perry also opened up about the past year and explained that it's been a difficult time for her, but she tries to keep her personal life separate from her career where she can:
"Even though I went through some pretty tough times last year I had to separate that because I know my problems are my problems and they are not the audience's problems."
