Katy Perry Disregards Fans During 'American Idol' Taping

According to a new report, the judge of the long-running singing competition show 'coldly ignored' the audience members as she is more interested in her phone.

AceShowbiz - Katy Perry seemingly wanted to leave "American Idol" as soon as possible. If a new report is to be believed, the judge "coldly ignored" the audience members behind-the-scenes as she was more interested in her phone.

A source told Radar Online that the "Fireworks" singer stayed "glued to her phone" and "coldly ignored" the audience during commercial breaks. "It was off-putting to see how she was so into her phone and ignored fans who were shouting her name."

"Fans shouted, 'Katy! Katy!' and, 'We love you Katy!' and if anything, she would quickly turn around to glance at them, but then went back to texting," the insider continued saying of the mom of one. It was also said that the fiancee of Orlando Bloom "acted very cold toward the audience and would not sign any autographs or take any photos with them."

Katy's cold behavior towards fans was the exact opposite of Lionel Richie's and Luke Bryan's. The other judges were allegedly "very engaging" and didn't hesitate to take the time to interact with fans coming to the taping.

The report further noted that while focused on her phone during commercial breaks, Lionel and Luke approached the fans. They would take selfies with fans and sign autographs for them.

The source, however, noted that "during one break, [Katy] was going through her box of goodies that was underneath the judge's table and she took some treats and threw them into the audience." The informant added, "It looked like she threw a bag of popcorn, and then a bag of Sour Patch Kids, and then a chocolate bar."

At the end of the filming, Katy allegedly "finally caved in and walked to three different groups in the audience to take selfies."

Katy revealed that she would depart from "American Idol" after season 22 back in February. During her appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!", "The One That Got Away" hitmaker said, "This fall, in September, I'm going to be doing this huge music festival in Brazil called Rock in Rio... so I think this will probably be my last season for 'Idol'."

She went on to say, "I mean, I love 'Idol' so much. It's connected me with the heart of America, but I need to feel that pulse of my own beat." When asked about how fellow judges reacted to her departure, Katy simply said, "Well, they'll find out tonight!"
