Katy Perry: The New Simon Cowell for 2011
Rumor mills are churning and opinions divided. It's common knowledge this will be Simon Cowell's last year on American Idol. There are many hats being tossed around the ring as to who will replace him as panel judge. Katy Perry served as a guest judge during open auditions this season, and now her hat is in the ring for permanent judge as well. In all honesty, perhaps it is Katy herself tossing her hat in the ring, as she made it plain to MTV, as reported by People magazine, that she would love to have that job.
To be brutally honest here, as an AI judge, Katy was mean spirited at times, and unlikeable at others. She was also direct, called it like she saw it, and her opinions are based on involvement and experience in the music industry.
Now, if we assess Simon Cowell as an AI judge, he can be mean spirited at times, unlikeable at others, but direct and calls it like he sees it. His opinions also come from someone involved and experienced in the music industry.
That's it in a nutshell ladies and gents. Katy Perry is Simon Cowell sans penis. I believe the choice here is obvious. If Idol producers want to keep the panel with the balance that it has now, my vote goes to Katy Perry, Simon Cowell's doppelganger with a vagina (however, they both have boobs). And she even kisses girls and likes it. The deal is sealed and the campaign posters on order. Katy Perry in 2011!
