🎤 “Not The Villain She’s Painted to Be” – ‘American Idol’ Starlet Oliver Steele Sets Record Straight on Katy Perry’s Drama 🙅♀️
TL;DR: ‘American Idol’ judge Katy Perry is under fire for her “mom-shaming” joke and alleged bully-like behavior on the show. Oliver Steele, a finalist, steps up to her defense, insisting that she’s not the bad guy here. Katy’s faced boos for her critique and raised eyebrows for focusing on eliminations over feedback. But hey, isn’t she just doing her job? 😏👀
Now, imagine you’re Katy Perry, global superstar turned ‘American Idol’ judge, and suddenly you’re the bad guy. Well, season 21 has been a wild ride with Katy facing flak for a supposedly mom-shaming joke at contestant Sara Beth Liebe’s audition. Not to mention, Katy was even booed for the first time ever on the show, after suggesting Nutsa bring a little less theatrics to her performances. And let’s not forget the questions raised when she focused on who got the boot rather than giving feedback to the hopeful Wé Ani. Seems like Katy just can’t catch a break, can she? 😬
But wait, here comes Oliver Steele, Top 8 finalist, to save the day—or rather, save Katy’s rep. In a heartfelt Instagram post, Steele sung praises for Katy, stating, “She saved me in the Judges’ Song Contest. She isn’t what some people make her out to be.” Now that’s a twist in the plot, right?🔄
Let’s pause for a sec here. Isn’t it a judge’s job to, well, judge? 🤔 To critique, to evaluate, to make the tough calls? Yet when Katy Perry does exactly that, she gets dubbed a bully. So what’s the deal here, folks? Could this be a classic case of shooting the messenger? Or is Katy really crossing some unseen line?
Maybe Katy Perry’s direct and often unsweetened feedback style is simply being mistaken for hostility. Maybe, just maybe, the mom-shaming joke wasn’t meant to shame at all, but just came out wrong. It’s tough to say. But one thing’s clear: the narrative isn’t as black and white as it seems. 🎭
So, what do you think, Turnt Up News readers? Is Katy Perry really a bully, or just a misunderstood judge doing her job? Is she a victim of cancel culture run amok, or is there some truth to the criticism? Let’s hear your thoughts, because this is one hot topic that’s just begging for a hearty debate. 🔥👇🏽
