The 32-year-old pop star recently stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show
, airing Tuesday, when DeGeneres -- herself a former Idol
judge -- bluntly asked Perry about the reports that she's signed on as a judge on the famous music competition's upcoming revival on ABC.
"Judge not, lest you be judged, but they didn't say anything about constructive criticism, and I'm good at that," Perry said cheekily.
As DeGeneres pushed for more, Perry strategically sipped her water.
"Right now I think you're just seeing parts of the body of work, and that part is, like, the sexually empowered and liberated part," she explained. "Now, embracing my 30s -- which I think is so bomb.com, I love it so much -- I love being a woman, and I love, you know, a consensual interaction."
"There's nothing wrong with that, we're all animals!" she joked.
Perry, who stressed that she was single and "ready to mingle," also raised $10,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs by playing a game of "Will You Perry Me?" -- a renamed version of "Who'd You Rather?"
Perry and DeGeneres managed to throw a little shade at Perry's ex-husband, Russell Brand, before the start of the game.
"I have to get married, again?" Perry replied when told the name of the game, crying fake tears. "I was when I was 25. It's been a long time, honey. No wrinkles, no lines."
"Oh that's right, I forgot about Russell," DeGeneres replied as the audience laughed.
Perry definitely has plenty on her plate these days. Aside from her new album and a tour in September, she's also appearing on James Corden's Carpool Karaoke. She was recently spotted by a fan singing "Dark Horse" with the Late Late Show host
, while driving through Los Angeles.
