Katy Perry Admits Being Single Helps

Etonline.com: Katy Perry has no problem putting herself first.

ET's Keltie Knight spoke with the 32-year-old singer at Mardi Gras World in New Orleans on Saturday, where she revealed the key to juggling American Idoland her Witness world tour: being single!

"I'm a bit younger in heart! I'm a bit more mature...single!" Perry laughed when asked about her busy schedule. "You know, when you're single, you got a lot of time to yourself and a lot of energy, and I'm just finding a delicate balance."

"And these guys are pulling a lot of the weight!" she added of her fellow Idol judges, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan.

And though Bryan is happily married, he seems to have other motivations for finding the best talent on Idol -- his playful feud with The Voice's Blake Shelton.

"I think [you should bet] a farm!" Perry suggested of what Bryan should gain from discovering the next country superstar. "Like a ranch!"

"Not the whole farm!" Richie interjected.

"Blake, I bet you four horses, seven cows, 15 deer stands and 45 acres!" Bryan decided, adding: "Not the country idol, just the American Idol, 'cause see, I can spot all forms of talent."
