Pop singer/songwriter Katy Perry is one busy lady. She recently released a new single featuring Migos, titled "Bon Apetit," and is gearing up for the release of her new album. In fact, she took to Twitter to hint that the new album release date is on May 15.

She mysteriously tweeted a GIF of her eye with the date 5/15 on it. A billboard in Times Square showed the same image. Meanwhile, the 32-year old is also reportedly in talks to judge the "American Idol" reboot on ABC.

Simon Cowell approached to judge 'American Idol' 2017

In a surprise turn of events, "American Idol" was picked up by ABC after just a year of being off the air.

Viewers had mixed reactions, as the show had admittedly declined following the departure of the original judges, especially Simon Cowell, who left the show in 2010.

The show continued with guest judges instead, but never really pulled in stellar viewer ratings throughout its last few years. It celebrated its final year last year, featuring performances by numerous albums from the show's 15-year run.

Speaking of Cowell, he recently admitted that he was approached to come back to the "American Idol" reboot to be a judge, but declined. Entertainment Weekly reported that as per Cowell, "I was asked to do it, and the answer is no." He further explained that "I have no interest. My memories are when we first started. It was a different time with Randy [Jackson], Ryan [Seacrest], and Paula [Abdul].

You can’t recreate that."

Katy Perry joining 'American Idol' 2017?

It seems that "American Idol" isn't stressing out over Cowell declining to join the judges' panel, as it has its eyes set on other talents, Katy Perry being one of them. As per Deadline, ABC is already in negotiations with the singer and songwriter to join the judges' panel for the relaunch of the reality singing competition.

This news arrives following the announcement that two of the show's biggest albums, Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson, have signed on to judge "The Voice" season 13 and 14, respectively, instead.

Clarkson and Perry are no strangers to each other, as the Grammy Award-winning Clarkson recorded a few tracks written by Perry, for the former's 2009 record, "All I Ever Wanted."

These tracks include "I Do Not Hook Up," which was one of the singles on the record, and "Long Shot." Fans of both singers should tune into "American Idol" reboot and "The Voice" once it returns to television in the near future.
