Katy Perry is back to work on American Idol less than two months after she gave birth to her first child with Orlando Bloom, baby Daisy, at the end of August. The singer dressed boldly in a cow-print ensemble, complete with a matching hat and giant black earrings. Dramatic, eccentric outfits like this have been Perry’s thing on American Idol so it’s no surprise she came back with statement look.


Perry spoke to Entertainment Tonight while there about returning to American Idol, giving her first interview about life as a mother.

‘It’s amazing,’ she said of being back on set. ‘I’m so grateful for this opportunity and for this job, and to be able to continue to inspire other people to go after their dreams. I mean, my life just feels very full and whole. And you know, it’s hard a little bit these first couple of days away and not being able to be there. But Daddy’s doing a great job. Daddy has stepped in. I’ve seen the Bjorn on him, I’ve seen him with the bottle, I’ve seen all the pictures. It’s all good.’

Perry’s Idol interview comes the same day that Bloom spoke on the Ellen DeGeneres Show about who their baby girl resembles. ‘Daisy Dove, my little mini-me/mini my mum/mini Katy,’ Bloom started. ‘Yes, the eyes do look like her, but it was funny because when she first came out it was like, “oh, it’s me. it’s a mini-me,” and then, fortunately, she got those Katy blues, which was perfect. But then she sort of looked like a bit like my mum so then I got a little bit confused because Katy’s breastfeeding this mini-me/my mum/who’s she going to look like next?’
