Katy Perry is set to get married to her fiance Orlando Bloom at some point this year, and while she’ll surely have a star-studded guest list, her fellow judges from “American Idol” won’t be on it.
The singer joked on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” that she just can’t afford to invite Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan. The two were sitting next to her during the interview.
“Like I said I can’t afford them. I mean, no. I mean, look. They have a lot of work to do, you know, while I’m out getting married again,” Perry told Kimmel, referencing her previous marriage to comedian Russell Brand from 2010 to 2012.
“We were in limbo. Lionel and I, we’ve been dropping hints,” Bryan joked.
“Let’s just say don’t save the date,” Kimmel responded.
Perry later told Kimmel that she isn’t too worked up about wedding planning, and stays pretty chill about the whole thing.
“But you know what is so funny is I’m actually not a bridezilla,” she said. “I call myself, like, a bridechilla. I’m like, ‘I’m kinda chill.’ But I am one of those girls where I got engaged February 14, and I booked the place February 19. I take it very seriously.”
Perry and Bloom have been engaged for a full year now and were supposed to get married before 2020, but their hectic scheduled didn’t allow for that to happen.
“They wanted to get married quickly but scheduling and pulling everything together has proven to be difficult,” a source explained to E! News in December. “The wedding was supposed to be in September, then December and now early next year. They have had to move things around because Katy has grand ideas of where and how she wants things to be.
“They have the guest list figured out and many of the details,” the source added. “They hope to have everything finalized soon because they are very excited about getting married.”
Perry opened up to Vogue India about her relationship with Bloom recently.
“Love is different from dating. You date in your twenties. Love is partnership, friendship, truth and being an absolute mirror to someone,” Perry said.
“Orlando is like a sage. When we first met, he said we would pull the poison out of each other, and we really do. It’s exhausting, but we really hold each other accountable. I’ve never had a partner who was willing to go on an emotional and spiritual journey like Orlando. It’s challenging, because you’re facing all the things you don’t like about yourself. It’s like a never-ending cleanse.”
