“American Idol” contestant Sara Beth Liebe said she’s “not even mad” about pop singer Katy Perry “mom-shaming” her on the show despite deciding to quit the competition to be home with her family.

The contestant, a 25-year-old mother of three, shared a video on Tuesday on her Instagram Story in which she talked about her desire to just “do music” — after previously sharing that her “heart’s at home” and not staying to compete in the singing competition, Page Six reported.

“If you watch my videos, you’d know that I’m not even mad. I’m just trying to do music,” the former “American Idol” contestant said.

The reality TV contestant said she had to address the comments because people have been claiming that her decision to leave the show was some kind of ploy “on her end” to get her “15 minutes of fame or whatever the hell everyone is saying.”

“I’m so over it. No more,” Liebe said, as she sent a message to members of the media she’s not going to comment any further about her time on the show.

The contestant made headlines in March when Perry was accused of being a “mean girl” and “bullying” Liebe during a recent episode.

During the hit ABC reality TV talent competition, fans said the 38-year-old “American Idol” judge was rude to the singer after Liebe’s revealed her singing expertise was basically the “church choir,” as previously reported.

“Is this your dream?” Perry asked the contestant, who appeared rattled and simply replied, “Um.”

“If it’s not your dream, you might need to leave because there’s a lot of dreams behind you,” the “Firework” hitmaker added.

Liebe admitted she was “still processing” being away from her kids before she finally started with her first song. However, Perry seemed unimpressed and prodded her, “Show us what your voice can do. Take it to the limit. No looking back. Sing it like it’s your new dream. More of that! Hold it out.”

The singer then named Liebe the “Accidental American Idol.”

“Look, if it’s not your dream, it’s not gonna go far because I also respect everyone that’s walking through that door who will lay down their life for this golden ticket [to Hollywood],” Perry explained.

Liebe did finally get picked and moved on through the competition, making it to Hollywood Week before she announced she was leaving.

“This opportunity is really rad, but this is actually gonna be my last performance ’cause my heart’s at home,” the contestant said. “So I’m gonna get home to my babies. They kinda need me. So thank you.”
