American Idol’ Contestant Responds To Katy Perry’s ‘Mom Shaming’ Comment!

Sara Beth Liebe, a candidate on “American Idol,” called judge Katy Perry’s response to find that she is a new mother “hurtful” and “embarrassing.”

“Hi friends. What an interesting video to be filming,” the 25-year-old mother of three said in a March 8 TikTok video. “Recently, I auditioned on ‘American Idol’ … and while I was on the show, there was a joke that was made that’s gotten some attention.”

During the California mom’s audition, which aired in early March, judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie marveled over her youthful appearance as a mom to three kids.

“What?!” said Perry, jumping from her seat and walking away.

“You OK, Katy?” Bryan asked.

“Nope,” responded Perry, who shares a 2-year-old daughter, Daisy, with Orlando Bloom.

“If Katy lays on the table, I think I’m going to pass out,” Liebe said.

“Honey, you’ve been laying on the table too much,” Perry replied.

Liebe spoke candidly about her response to Perry’s remark in her TikTok video.

“It was embarrassing to have that on TV and it was hurtful, and that’s that,” she said in the video. “But I did want to take this opportunity to just say that I think that women supporting and uplifting other women is so cool, and I think that mom shaming is super lame.”
