Katy Perry is singing her swan song.
“I think this will probably be my last show, my last season for Idol,” she said during a Feb. 12 appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “I mean I love Idol so much. It’s connected me with like the heart of America, but I feel like I need to go out and feel that pulse, that pulse to my own beat.”
But when asked what her co-judges Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan thought of the news Katy quipped, “Well they’ll find out tonight! They know I have some things planned for this year. It’s going to be a very, very exciting year.”
And while she hinted that she’s “been in the studio for awhile,” the only part of that exciting year the 39-year-old confirmed are some of her plans for the fall.
“In September I’m going to be doing this huge music festival in Brazil which is called Rock in Rio,” Katy revealed. “It’s a big deal, it’s a big deal for people all over the world, especially my Brazilian fans.”
