Paula Abdul of the new CBS reality show, Live to Dance, has some words for those who think that she doesn’t have a brain. According the the former American Idol judge, she is intelligent and her ramblings (or “Paula-isms” as we like to call them) on American Idol were just her being her “goofy” self. See what else Paula had to say in her interview with Julie Chen of CBS Sunday Morning.
There’s a big misconception about Paula Abdul that’s been hanging over her head since she first appeared on the judges’ panel of the hit FOX reality show, American Idol, ten years ago. For years, fans and haters alike have watched and listened to Abdul, often scratching their heads trying to make sense of what she’s saying and wondering why she’s always jumping out of her chair. But in an interview with Julie Chen of CBS Sunday Morning, Paula says that despite what people think, she does have a brain and she has never had a drinking problem.
“I am intelligent. I am,” said Abdul.
“But, people don’t give you enough credit for having a brain?” Julie Chen of CBS Sunday Morning asked.
“Having a brain, that’s a concept, yes, with Paula Abdul. I have a brain,” said Paula. “I’ve never had a drinking problem… Even though I’ve been in this business for quite some time,” insisted the Live to Dance star. “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.”
“So, it’s just Paula?” asked Chen.
“It’s Paula. It is Paula. And, even the people on ‘Idol’ know that none of that existed, ever.”
The season premiere of Paula Abdul’s Live to Dance airs Tuesday, January 4 at 8|7c on CBS.
