Katy Perry Dropping New Single Next Month, But Is there An American Idol Curse?


Katy Perry is dropping a new single July 11th.

It’s her first release since leaving “American Idol” at the end of the season.

“Woman’s World” is the title, and Katy is hoping to return to the days of “Firework” and her other hits.

But there may be an “American Idol” curse. Last week, “Idol” judge Luke Bryan released a new album called “Mind of a Country Boy.” It’s stalled at number 25 on iTunes. “Idol” judges have never had a lot of luck on the charts even though they have the most exposure ever. His “Idol” appearance did nothing for Jon Bon Jovi either.

The problem for Perry is age, I’m sad to say. She will have to have a knockout single in “Woman’s World,” so catchy and unusual that everyone will want to hear it on the radio.

I’m a big Katy Perry fan, so I’m crossing fingers “Woman’s World” will bring her back to the charts!
