Straight Up Now Tell Me What You Don't Like About Paula Abdul.

  • Dec 18, 2008

She danced with an animated cat, and had to deal with cold-hearted snakes, for crying out loud!  And we can't show a Laker cheerleader some love?  Simon is the real "judge" of American Idol, but Paula is the real "entertainment" on the show.  Randy can be replaced, and so can Ryan Seacrest, unless he decides to come out of the closet.  I wanna bank on Abdul to entertain me with her foibles for many years to come.

She also co-starred with Keanue Reeves in her video for "Rush Rush."  Doesn't that count for something?

What did you think of this review?

I agree, Paula is quite entertaining, while Simon is the one true judge. He really knows his stuff and is always looking for the commercial appeal. Kara has added some thoughtful narrative as of late. Paula's certainly had her shares of ups and downs, both personally and professionally, and acts a little whacked out at times, but true, she makes the show worth watching. What don't like about her is that I think she's insincere at times. About Ryan.....I thought he was a pretty decent facilitator, but recently has been a little obnoxious......the producers probably tell him to act that way, as all of these programs drag on at times.

She's aged badly and she seems to be less sobre than she is a woman.  But it is interesting to listen to a drunk comment on someone's singing performance.

About this actor


Born: June 19, 1962 in San Fernando, CA
Years Active: 80 's, 90 's, 00's
Genre: ROCK

In the wake of Madonna's success, many dance-pop divas filled the charts, but out of them all, Paula Abdul was the only one who sustained a career. The former L.A. Lakers cheerleader and choreographer began to make inroads in pop music when she was hired as an assistant dance director on the Jacksons' Victory tour, which led to a job choreographing Janet Jackson's videos for Control. Abdul's work on Jackson's videos helped make the album a hit, making her a sought-after choreographer. After working on The Tracy Ullman Show and videos for ZZ Top, Duran Duran, and the Pointer Sisters, Abdul began a recording career, releasing her debut album, Forever Your Girl, in 1988. The first two singles drawn from the record were moderate hits, but the release of "Straight Up" at the end of the year made her a superstar. Staying at the top of the charts for three weeks, "Straight Up" began a string of six number one singles (with "The Way That You Love Me" recharting at number three in 1989) that ran through the summer of 1991.

Abdul's singles were hits not because her singing was exceptional -- her voice is thin and transparent -- but because she worked with savvy producers who had a knack for picking songs with solid pop and dance hooks. Abdul's spectacular big-budget videos helped push the sales of Forever Your Girl past seven ...
