According to Life and Style, a friend claimed that Jon Bon Jovi isn’t in talks with the executives to replace Katy Perry. After all, he’s rather expensive. However, another insider source claimed:

Jon is the undisputed top contender to succeed Katy. A living legend with undeniable charisma, he possesses all the qualities necessary to command the stage and captivate TV audiences…The crux of the matter is money. To secure a true rock icon of his caliber, one must invest accordingly!
