The new American Idol with Katy Perry making $25 million as a judge on the show (and her salary takes 65% of their budget, apparently).
Well, that was announced after Ryan Seacrest began negotiations, and while it sounded like he was going to take his offer and run with the show, it sounds now like he’s holding back, not signing, and trying to renegotiate the initial $10 million that he was offered.
$10 million is nothing to sneeze at, definitely, but he was making $15 million before, according to sources. So maybe we won’t be seeing Ryan Seacrest on the American Idol reboot? Despite all the previous reports and rumors, Katy Perry is actually the only one confirmed 100% to join the show. They’re supposed to start filming soon, and they’ve got nobody else!?
