Simon Cowell Says Paula Abdul Follows Him Like A Puppy

“It’s like owning a dog and the dog will only sit next to its master. If she’s away from me, she pines. She’s unhappy. She has to sit next to me … I like loopy. I can be a bit loopy at times, and I can hang out with her socially because she gets on with my friends. We have a similar sense of humor and I tell her there are no rules on this show, so don’t worry about how you want to behave.”

Simon Cowell talks to People about his relationship with Paula Abdul, who will be joining him on the show “The X Factor.” Wait, did he really just make an analogy in which he is the master and she is the puppy? Ick. [People] Keep reading »

Lady Gaga’s “Edge of Glory,” Solo Dance-A-Thon

In her new video for “Edge of Glory,” Lady Gaga doesn’t have a cadre of dancers or major outfit changes. Instead, it’s just her and a saxophone player on the abandoned set of Paula Abdul’s “Opposites Attract” video. It seems that MC Skat Cat has left a window open, and Paula has left some of her old ’90s Versace lying around — because Gaga is decked out in a very vintage-y Versace bodysuit and shirt for the entirety of the video. So much sass! So much skunk hair! Can you stand it? Check out the video after the jump!

Paula Abdul Has Never Been Drunk

“I’ve never had a drinking problem… Even though I’ve been in this business for quite some time. I’ve never physically been drunk in my life. I’ve never been drunk in my life. I don’t use recreational drugs. But, I am goofy … “I am intelligent. Having a brain, that’s a concept, yes, with Paula Abdul. I have a brain.”

Quotable: Paula Abdul Thinks Simon Cowell Will Make A Good Hubby

“It took me about 12 days to take my jaw off the ground and put it back up. But Mezghan is a lovely girl and I’ve known her for a long time. They make a great couple and I’m happy for them. … It would be an alter ego of Simon to gush about her. That is not part of his DNA. However, I know that he’s in a happy place so that makes me happy. … I know Simon so well and honest to God, I think he’s at that stage in his life where he’s a grown-up Simon now, making him a great and loving husband. But he still has that little bad boy in him.”

An “American Idol” Contestant Gives A Straight-Up Homage To Paula Abdul

“American Idol” hopeful Andrew Garcia made us straight-up miss former judge Paula Abdul last night with his amazing rendition of “Straight Up.” So what did the judges think? They couldn’t help but imagine how apes**t Paula would be if she were there. Even ultra-annoying Kara DioGuardi said, “Paula would be screaming and yelling.” She also might be drooling or slurring her speech or wearing a crazy outfit. OK … I love Ellen DeGeneres to death but I’m having a moment of Paula nostalgia. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Paula Abdul Acts A Fool On The Red Carpet

Paula Abdul must’ve decided she was going to be the belle of the ball last night at the American Music Awards, so she really made a splash on the red carpet. She needed not one, not two, but THREE lackeys to help her navigate that Enzoani dress. Hope those kids got some free champers after that. [Los Angeles, 11/22/09] Keep reading »

Amy Poehler Does Her Best Paula Abdul

Amy Poehler visits “Inside the Actor’s Studio” tonight at 7 p.m. On the show, James Lipton gets Amy to do her Paula Abdul impression. Her imitation of the ex-”American Idol” judge is exactly like Paula’s real-life wacky and nonsensical way of talking, and we’re pretty sure there weren’t any muscle relaxers involved. Check it out in the above video, starting about one minute in. Keep reading »

Paula Abdul Walks The “VH1 Divas” Stage In Ellen DeGeneres’ Converse Sneakers


Last night, VH1 held their annual “Divas” concert, featuring Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus, and Jordin Sparks, even though attaching the label “diva” to these gals is questionable. During the show, which coincidentally took place at the Brooklyn Academy of Music right down the road from my apartment, host Paula Abdul made a funny. She dressed up as Ellen DeGeneres, who’s replacing her as a judge on “American Idol” this season, and imitated her dopest dance moves, grooving her way over to a replica of Ellen’s set. “Why y’all staring at me? Can’t a girl try out a new job?” she said. “All kidding aside—nothing but love Ellen. And I wish you the best of luck on the new gig. And you gotta call me if you have any Simon problems because, well, I know him best.” Keep reading »

Ellen To Replace Paula On “American Idol”

Fox has jut announced that they’ve found a replacement for Paula Abdul on “American Idol.” The new judge who will be sitting alongside Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, and Kara DioGuardi? Ellen DeGeneres. Ellen released this statement:

“I’m thrilled to be the new judge on American Idol. I’ve watched since the beginning, and I’ve always been a huge fan. So getting this job is a dream come true, and think of all the money I’ll save from not having to text in my vote. Hopefully I’m the people’s point of view because I’m just like you. I sit at home and I watch it. … I’m not looking at it in a critical way from the producer’s mind. I’m looking at it as a person who is going to buy the music and is going to relate to that person. I’m going to have a day job and a night job. The times we’re living in … we’re all doing that.”

So, Fox managed to find someone with greater STAR QUALITY than Abdul, but Ellen also has less — and it hurts to say this — of a musical background. So what do we think of this news? Will it make the show as entertaining? [DListed] Keep reading »
