Katy Perry arrives at NBC’s “Carol Burnett: 90 Years Of Laughter + Love” Birthday Special at Avalon Hollywood & Bardot on March 02, 2023 in Los Angeles, California.
An American Idol Contestant reflects on an embarrassing moment she had with Katy Perry earlier in the month during her audition. Sarah Beth, 25, a mother of three was featured on this music competition show. She was introducing herself to the judges, and they were shocked to discover she was 25.
Perry, 38, was noted by fellow judges Lule Bryan (Lionel Richie) and Lule Bryan (Lule Bryan). Sarah Beth revealed to the judges that she was a mom of three. Perry stood up and lean against the table, surprise. Bryan looked stunned. “If Katy lays on the table, I think I’m going to pass out,” the visibly nervous Sarah Beth said. Perry cheekily quipped, “Honey, you’ve been laying on the table too much!”
Shortly after the audition aired, the California native took to TikTok to comment on Perry’s “joke,” saying it “wasn’t super kind.” On her feelings about the comment, the stay-at-home mom said she doesn’t have much to say about it because it was “pretty self-explanatory.”
“It was embarrassing to have that on TV, and it was hurtful and that’s that,” the mother of three said. “I think that women supporting and uplifting other women is so cool and I think that mom shaming is super lame and I think that it’s hard enough to be a mom and it’s hard enough to be a woman.”

Sarah Beth concluded her message by acknowledging other young mothers and “moms in general,” who have been supporting her. She stated that she hears all of them and believes they are all worthy. “Keep loving your babies. Nobody should feel bad about this! If you’re a good mama and you love your babies, that’s all that really matters.” Comments on the video, which has received nearly 500,000 views, have been disabled.
In a following TikTok addressing her audition, Beth says that people were critiquing her screaming rather than singing “Benny and the Jets” by Elton John. During her audition, the contestant switched her song to Amy Winehouse’s “You’re Know I’m No Good.” Bored with her performance, Perry told her, “That’s not enough. Try ‘Benny and the Jets.” She got enough votes from Perry and Bryan to move on to the next stage to go to Hollywood. Katy Perry is yet to respond.
