Katy Perry Turned Down Idol

Today in What Might Have Been, the 2012 American Idol Judges Edition: Katy Perry was also apparently courted for a spot at this season's table. TMZ claims that the show offered Perry $20 million — $2 million more than Mariah Carey is getting — but Katy was having none of it. Probably because breast cannons aren't allowed on prime-time television.
