The reboot of “American Idol” hasn’t even started airing yet and already there is tension between Katy Perry and Lionel Richie.
“Lionel is a grown-ass man and he is a music legend. He wrote ‘We Are The World,’ and now has to wait around for Katy Perry and change his entire schedule so it fits with hers,” sources tell Straight Shuter. “A few weeks ago the show taped auditions in New York and Katy’s schedule determined everything. Idol was shot around Katy’s scheduled concerts at Madison Square Garden. Lionel was treated like one of her backup singers and wasn’t happy. Plus, remember this is just the beginning. Things are going to get worse.”
Anthony Bourdain Is An Elevator Diva
Chef and CNN star Anthony Bourdain is known to be a master in the kitchen but now sources tell Straight Shuter that Bourdain is a diva in the elevator.
“Guess who was too big a star to share the back of house private Javits Center elevator with other panelists at NY Comic Con this weekend? Believe it or not, Anthony Bourdain,” sources tell Straight Shuter. “He had a giant service elevator all to himself – other than his entourage. The doors opened for another panel of actors to get on and make their way to the panel area and his security barred all from entering. He was a total diva. He thinks he’s Angelina Jolie.”

However, a pal close to Tony tells us, “The security guard was been over protective. Tony was embarrassed and this had nothing to do with him. He’s a great guy and will share a meal or an elevator.”
