Perry and her American Idol co-stars appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live on February 12, where she revealed the hilarious reason why she won’t be inviting her fellow judges to her and Orlando Bloom’s big day.
“I can’t afford them.” Perry quipped when Kimmel asked if she’d extended an invite to the singers. Following up to see if she’d asked Bryan and Richie to perform at the reception, Perry said, “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.”
About not getting invited, Bryan said, “We were in limbo. Lionel [Richie] and I, we’ve been dropping hints …” After Perry joked that the duo was on the B-list, Kimmel said, “Let’s just say don’t save the date,” according to E! News.
