Katy Perry has no problem saying “Bon Appétit” during the audition days for “American Idol.”
The pop star — and new judge on the recently revived TV singing competition — revealed she likes to snack throughout those lengthy days of listening to the hopeful contestants try out.
“I’m not afraid to eat on camera,” Perry said Wednesday at an “Idol” press event. “I love it. I’m just, like, popping in a little Oreo in my mouth.”

Her fellow judges have taken notice.
“While we’re judging, it’s like there’s a little mouse up there,” Luke Bryan said with a laugh. “Katy’s the little mouse.”
Adds Lionel Richie, “I was not going to say anything, but she brought it up.”
