Paula Abdul as an entertainer .. Your thoughts .


Recommended Posts

Many years ago it was Madonna , Janet and then came Paula. All three were huge . Paula at one point exploded in popularity. She was huge back in the day . Straight up, Cold Hearted , Forever your girl…etc. Yet society ripped her voice apart because she did not have a powerhouse voice.  She was no Mariah or Whitney . Yet she found her niche. After time she just left..She said she suffered a lot of injuries from dancing and a plane crash . She then had to take meds for pain and injuries she suffered. Paula left music to focus on her health.

Paula then returned strong with the launching of American Idol. She was the only known celebrity when it started up . Yet I never thought she got the credit she deserved. 

During the years she was on meds. Sometimes she said and looked out there. Society joked about Paula  . Kinda like they did when Britney was medicated on Idol.  That always bothered me. Yet Paula held her own and was a strength and an important reason her Simon and Randy became huge again.  Then she left because the men got paid more and yet she deserved equal pay ? I only tuned in for her and the talent . Then I loved her sparring with Simon. Yet It showed how women still have far to go in equal pay . 

Paula Abdul was a Great Entertainer …she use to know her limits and worked on strengthening her voice. She could dance . She is still a talented choreographer to this day  .

A few years back at an award show she slayed a performance ( with a little lip sinking, I think dancing like that you have to ) . Shes almost 60 , still gorgeous and still a sweetheart .  Would the world like another Paula Album? I actually would love to hear more songs from her . If you liked her? Did you have a song favorite? Do you even care about Paula ? Your thoughts? I will always love her.

Listen to forever your girl album it's a BOP, I also feel Brit was somewhere inspired by her as well but Janet takes the cake overall. She puts on a great show too!

I've never heard her songs other than the singles and they are ALL BOPS.

love vibeology and knocked out

promise of a new day too

Paula choreographed Janet, Michael,George Michael, The lakers girls, Tracy Ullman show, coming to American , tom hanks in Big and many other movies, celebrities and shows. She was always undervalued. Yet she knew her strengths and used them better than most . Also  shes just another kind women. Janet I adore .. another abused celebrity. Why is it strong talented women are always being kicked down? Strong women .. we knock them down in this society after idolizing them .
