Rihanna had a shady response when asked if she'd join Katy Perry as a judge on American Idol... it's the Dredge

All the celeb dirt that’s fit to rake.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, DailyEdge.ie rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt from the top to the very bottom.

The new American Idol is currently in “chaos” as it struggles to land new judges for its reboot season.

They only have Katy Perry signed up right now, and it’s just weeks away from the first auditions being recorded.

So Katy is essentially the face of the show – amid rumours that country singer Luke Bryan has turned down the chance to become judge number two.

Earlier this summer, Katy said that Rihanna would be one of her dream co-judges on the show.

Rihanna was asked about her link with American Idol over the weekend by ExtraTV: “would you be a judge?”

“Ohh, I don’t know. Depends on how bored I am.”

This new American Idol isn’t getting off to the best of starts.

It was a bit of a shady response given Katy Perry is the only name attached and she’s singled her out as a potential Idol judge – and you can watch it here:

She would make a *great* judge though, given her cutting one-liner abilities. (Buzzfeed)

Lorde graces the cover of this month’s Vogue Australia, and she had a message for everyone in school that called her “monobrow”.

Shoutout to the brow haters:

Whoever actually called her that in school is probably going to avoid Vogue for the rest of their lives now, such is the public-nature of this absolute burn.

Geordie Shore’s Gaz Beadle is absolutely bet into the prospect of becoming a dad – and he’s revealed the gender of the upcoming newborn to OK! Magazine.

It’s a boy. Howay the lad.

Off nursery shopping 😱😁👶🏼

Gaz told the magazine:

It’s a boy – I can’t wait to have a little mate.

He really wanted a son:

For me, obviously I wanted a boy, so I’m buzzing.

While his girlfriend Emma said:

We both guessed right. I didn’t mind either way. Gaz really wanted a boy, though.

Wahey. (Goss.ie)
