Rihanna has thrown some huge shade at American Idol.

Is Ross Geller really the worst boyfriend ever? Friends’ Carol and Susan have their say

While walking the red carpet for her Diamond Ball benefit for the Clara Lionel Foundation, she was asked if she’d consider giving judging on the talent show a go. Her response was absolute sass and 100% Rihanna.

She said: ‘Depends how bored I am.’

Whoa there. Was shade thrown at new judge Katy Perry? As far as it goes the two women are said to be friends, but could there be a little bit of bad blood? Either way, it’s a safe bet that Rihanna won’t be watching the show either.

Katy Perry was announced as a new judge earlier this summer, and was ‘thrilled’ to be asked.

She said: ‘I am honoured and thrilled to be the first judge bringing back the American Idol tradition of making dreams come true for incredible talents with authentic personalities and real stories.

‘I’m always listening to new music, and love discovering diamonds in the rough – from mentoring young artists on my label, or highlighting new artists on my tours, I want to bring it back to the music.’

At least she knows Rihanna won’t be after nicking her job.
