American Idol Producer Defends Katy Perry"s Crazy Salary & Explains Why A Reboot Is Already Happening!

Don't judge — American Idol knows what it's doing! Producer Cecile Frot-Coutaz sat down with The Hollywood Reporter this week to dish on the reboot that has many fans saying — "Huh?

Producer Cecile Frot-Coutaz sat down with The Hollywood Reporter this week to dish on the reboot that has many fans saying -- "Huh? But why?" -- and explained why execs wasted no time bringing the hit show back. She also spoke on the insane paycheck Katy Perry is reported to be receiving as a judge -- and explained why the pop star is totally worth it! Video: Katy To Host 2017 MTV VMAs! The CEO of FremantleMedia North America, which produces Idol, says the show's production costs are on par with competing shows -- even with Katy Kat's reported $25 million salary. In an interview published on Thursday, she explained: "The show is not more expensive than its competitors in the genre. If other networks can make it work on similar properties, then there's no reason why ABC couldn't. This notion that the show [costs] a lot more than any other is completely untrue. We know that because we've made other shows in other genres. ABC wouldn't order something that didn't work for them financially." Showbiz is still a business, after all. The 51-year-old added that she thinks the Swish Swish singer will also benefit from this new job during this transitional phase of her career, noting: "Katy is in a transition in terms of her own career. It has been shown now what these platforms can do for artists. It has been beneficial to other people, whether it's on Idol or The Voice. But I think she genuinely cares. She auditioned when she was a guest judge on Idol in 2010 and then on the [U.K.] X-Factor. She's brilliant." Brilliant, indeed! We fondly remember Katy's 2010 guest spot -- specifically when she threatened to throw coke in Kara Dioguardi's face. Related: Fox Is Salty About Losing Idol The other judges have yet to be confirmed -- though rumored stars include Chris Daughtry, Lionel Richie, and Charlie Puth -- one name, however, was always in the cards to return: Ryan Seacrest! Frot-Coutaz admitted producers "always" planned on locking down the OG host, despite his super busy sched. She explained: "It was always going to happen. It's hard for Ryan. He's on the East Coast now and had to figure out how to make it work, but he's the hardest-working man in show business, so there will be some flying back and forth. But, as I said, it was always going to happen. He's the face of Idol." Eh, we think Simon Cowell's eye rolls are the face of Idol -- but Ry Guy is a close second! Related: Idol Alum Haley Reinhart Arrested For Battery! As for why ABC felt like it was the right time to bring back Idol just a year after its cancellation on Fox, the exec explained: "When Idol wrapped, we did extensive research. We found that we'd recruited new, much younger viewers. Do you wait five or six years, with the landscape continuing to evolve, and risk losing those followers? In thinking about doing the right thing for the brand and franchise, it felt to us that it was an unfinished story. Even though the show lived on Fox for 15 years, its audience is actually closer to that of ABC or CBS." We agree... if by "unfinished story" she means countless winners who have yet to launch legit music careers. LOLz! Will YOU be tuning into the next chapter of American Idol when it returns?

And it is the right thing to do is to pray in moments like this, because you know what? Prayer works. And I know you believe that, and I believe that and when you hear the secular left doing this thing, it's no wonder you have so much polarization and disunity in this country when people think like that."

Texas Church Shooter Killed His Own Grandmother-In-Law & Once Fractured His Stepson"s Skull

Those who knew Devin Kelley were not entirely shocked to learn he had shot up a church and killed 26 people on Sunday.

Years before the 26-year-old stormed into a Texas church with a military-style rifle and went on a mass shooting rampage, he was convicted of assaulting his wife and breaking his infant stepson's skull. Related: Trump Says Texas Church Shooting 'Isn't A Guns Situation' While stationed at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico in 2012, Kelley was charged with "assault on his spouse and assault on their child." Don Christensen, a retired colonel who prosecuted Kelley for the Air Force, told the New York Times: "He assaulted his stepson severely enough that he fractured his skull, and he also assaulted his wife. He pled to intentionally doing it." After 12 months confinement, the self-proclaimed atheist was discharged from the military with a bad conduct discharge, which kicked off a downward spiral that included divorce and an animal cruelty charge. On Sunday, Kelley appeared to get revenge on his second wife Danielle and a faith he professed to loathe when he killed 26 people and injured 20 others at the First Baptist Church. Among those Kelley killed in the church was own grandmother-in-law Lula Woincinski White (pictured above). Kelley's other in-laws and second wife were also members of the church, but not present during the day of the massacre. Related: Marilyn Manson Points Fake Rifle At San Bernardino Concert On Monday, Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackitt told reporters that 12 to 14 of the people killed were kids. Releasing the identity of more victims, officials confirmed Marc Daniel Holcombe and his 18-month-old daughter Noah were killed. After the shooting on Sunday, friends from Kelley's high school took to Facebook to speak about the tragedy. While most remembered him as an awkward but friendly teenager, many admitted hearing the news wasn't surprising -- since, in recent years, Kelley grew so dark that many unfriended him on the social media site. Longtime friend Courtney Kleiber shared on Sunday: "I had always known there was something off about him. But he wasn't always a ‘psychopath' though… [He was] happy at one point, normal, your average kid. We had a lot of good times together. Over the years we all saw him change into something that he wasn't. To be completely honest, I'm really not surprised this happened, and I don't think anyone who knew him is very surprised either." Sending love and light to everyone in Sutherland Springs, Texas. [Image via Texas Department of Public Safety/Facebook.].....»»

As we previously reported, at least 26 people were killed on November 5 after Devin Kelley opened fire during a service at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. Some of the victims' identities had already been released, including a pastor's daughter, a pregnant mother, and even the gunman's own grandmother-in-law. Related: First Baptist Survivor Details Playing Dead During Shooting Now, more information is coming to light about the faithful souls who were mercilessly killed in the deadliest shooting in the state's history. Here's what we know about the remaining victims: Haley Krueger (above) dreamed of becoming an NICU nurse and was described by family friends as a "beautiful, vibrant teenager" who "loved babies." The 16-year-old regularly attended services at First Baptist and had even arrived early Sunday morning to help prepare breakfast for the parishioners. Joann Ward, 30, (above) reportedly died trying to shield her children from bullets inside the church. Her daughters Emily Garza, 7, (above, middle) and Brooke Ward, 5, (above, top) were killed in the gunfire. According to a Facebook post by a family friend, Rihanna Ward, 9, said that her mother "pushed her down when she saw the shooter open fire." Michael Ward, Joann's brother-in-law, carried her son Ryland, 5, from the building after the shooter fled. Michael said he wasn't sure if Ryland would survive as the children were all sitting in the back of the church and were the first the shooter struck when entering the building. Ryland was shot four times and in surgery late Sunday. Robert Scott Marshall, 56, and his wife Karen, 57, (above) had recently retired and moved to Texas. They were trying out churches on Sunday when the gunman opened fire. Related: Trump Says Texas Church Shooting 'Isn't A Guns Situation' According to family members on Facebook, the couple had met in the military over 30 years ago, serving in the US Air Force in North Carolina. The gunman had also served in the Air Force before getting dishonorably discharged over an assault case. Another slain Air Force veteran was Robert Corrigan, who had moved to Sutherland Springs from Michigan several years ago with his wife Shani (above). The couple had two sons on active duty in the military and were friends with several of the victims from the Holcombe family -- as well as the shooter's mother-in-law, Michelle Fields. Tara McNulty (above) was with her two children when the shooting began on Sunday. Her kids, Hailey and James, survived, but have a long way to recovery. Tara worked as a bartender at The Aumont Saloon and was described as a "very kind-hearted person" by her boss on Facebook. Dennis Johnson and his wife Sara (above) were hailed as "the great couple" who loved their church by friends on Facebook. Sara was a receptionist at Pfeil's Home and Garden Materials and was originally from Jasper, Florida. Richard, 64, and Theresa Rodriguez, 66, (above) loved going to their church and working in their garden. The couple married in 2006 years after Richard lost his first wife. Regina Rodriguez told People her father attended church every Sunday and was always the center of attention. So many beautiful, kind souls claimed by such an evil act. Though the First Baptist worshippers are going through insurmountable pain and heartbreak, they also remain faithful that those who have suffered have gone to a better place. We'd like to think the same. [Image via GoFundMe/Facebook.].....»»

Donald Trump Says Texas Church Shooting "Isn"t A Guns Situation" — But Twitter Reminds Him That"s Absolutely What It Is

Donald Trump has yet another divisive and passive response in the face of tragedy. As we're sure you heard, a 26-year-old gunman killed at least 26 people and wounded about 20 others inside the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on Sunday.

As we're sure you heard, a 26-year-old gunman killed at least 26 people and wounded about 20 others inside the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on Sunday. In response, POTUS told reporters the shooting "isn't a guns situation," but rather a "mental health problem." How about: it's both. We should care about mental health AND gun control -- and why in the world someone with mental health issues can have access to an assault rifle in the first place. Related: Trump Is The First Result When You Search For 'Hitler' On Twitter At the press briefing, Trump said "mental health is your problem here," calling the shooter a "very deranged individual" with "a lot of problems over a long period of time." He went on to say that it's "a little too soon" to get into gun control policy. He said the same thing after the Las Vegas shooting and has yet to do anything about that attack either. You can watch Trump express his "thoughts and prayers" (below): ...Americans do what we do best: we pull together. We join hands. We lock arms and through the tears and the sadness, we stand strong... pic.twitter.com/qkCPgtKGkA — Donald J.
