    Recently, Katy Perry swung by BuzzFeed to do our puppy interview. Honestly, it was one of the cutest things I've ever seen!

    She shared the hardest part of being an American Idol judge...

    "Probably being a woman and having a strong opinion."

    And the most rewarding part of being an American Idol judge.

    "People able to help people find their spark inside of them, their purpose."

    She also shared some of her favorite memories from working with her fellow judges, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie.

    And she invited Lizzo to join her as the fourth Idol judge.

    "I'm feeling a little outnumbered on the testosterone."

    And she really bonded with the precious pups — so much that she almost took one home!

    "May be going home with me."
