Katy Perry calls Simon Cowell an a**hole
Perry had this to say regarding the prickly, honest British judge, "I might become a little bit of a buddy with Simon because whenever I watch that show, as much as he's an a**hole, he's a very truthful, honest a**hole."
She also said she won't be afraid to tell people the truth if they need to hear it. However, Perry isn't all negative. She is excited to help people live out their dreams. "I'm in this every single day," she said. "I'm seeing the ins and outs of both the business and the wonderful fruits of my labor. I really feel I have a very what's-going-on-right-now perspective."
