P!nk Reveals Why She Turned Down American Idol Judging Gig
Don’t look for P!nk at the judging tablefor American Idol Season 12… or any other singing competition show for that matter. The pop songstress admitted to being courted by a few programs — including The Voice in Australia, X Factor, and Idol — which threw job offers her way, but she doesn’t want anything to do with that line of work.
Speaking with Australia’sHerald Sun, P!nk said, "I said no because you can't be honest. People will hate you if you're honest. Simon Cowell is the only person who gets away with it because he's got an accent. And he's a man. People would just hate me more than they already do. I don't want to hurt anybody's feelings. Besides, you can sing karaoke anywhere.”
But, but, but… Idol needs a healthy injection of snark! Besides, P!nk could totally get away with it. Pity.
