Twenty-five-year-old “American Idol” contestant and mother of three Sara Beth Liebe recently dropped out of the hit show because one of the celebrity judges, Katy Perry, made a “mom-shaming” remark, reports Yahoo.
All three judges Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan and Perry were shocked by Liebe’s age, prompting her to say: “If Katy lays on the table, I think I’m going to pass out.”
Perry — who made headlines last year when she supported quasi-fascist Rick Caruso for Los Angeles mayor — fired back: “Honey, you’ve been laying on the table too much.”
Perry also called Liebe “a comic strip character come to life,” and lectured Liebe about pursuing her dream: “Is this your dream? If it’s not your dream you might need to leave because there are a lot of dreams behind you,”
Liebe went on TikTok soon after to recall the incident:
Well. I didnt think id be making this video, but i just wanted to say a couple things since im being flooded with articles and comments/messages about this.♬ original sound – Sara Beth
