With a rainbow suit that exudes quirkiness, Katy Perry’s future is sure to shine brightly. She rocked the multicolored striped jacket paired with electric blue high-waisted trousers as she arrived for the American Idol auditions in Hollywood on Wednesday. The layers of bold and vibrant hues made her stand out even more.
Katy appeared enthusiastic and eager to start working on the show, which is not surprising considering her success. Her lead role on Idol has helped her achieve the title of being the highest paid female musician in 2018 according to Forbes.
According to a recent report by a business publication, Katy Perry has topped the list of highest earners in the music industry. Over the course of 12 months from June to June, she earned a staggering $83 million before taxes. The source of her income mostly came from her 80-date Witness world tour. Additionally, her role as a judge on the show American Idol reportedly added another $20 million to her total earnings.
The figures were computed based on pre-tax profits earned from 1 June 2017 to 1 June 2018, without considering fees for agents, lawyers, managers, and estate executors. Recently, Katy Perry joined the effort to help raise $1 million for those affected by the Woolsey Fire in Malibu, which destroyed several residences. She sang at a benefit concert named One Love Malibu alongside other famous personalities such as Gwen Stefani, Natasha Bedingfield, Robin Thicke, Alanis Morissette, and Macy Gray. Perry also participated in an auction where she bid $50,000 for a date with Orlando Bloom, and the funds went to aid the victims.
The MalibuFoundation.org is set to receive the earnings from the fundraiser, and it will be distributed by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Malibu. The fire that lasted for more than two weeks caused substantial damage to the area, resulting in three fatalities, around 1,500 buildings being burned, and nearly 100,000 acres being destroyed. The affluent coastal town’s star-studded community also suffered losses, with celebrities such as Thicke, Camille Grammer, Liam Hemsworth, and Gerard Butler having significant damage to their properties.
