Paula Abdul Mocks Her Substance Addiction

Paula Abdul is laughing off her wacky antics on American Idol Tuesday night. One song or two, Paula? Abdul appeared at the Lupus L.A. 2008 Orange Ball and made jokes about how high she was.

“No one understands me. By the way are you singing two songs tonight?” she joked to the crowd.

People are still squawking over Paula Abdul rendering everyone speechless and wincing when she judged contestant Jason Castro on singing two songs, when he sang just one. Paula says that it was actually because of a last-minute production decision.

“It was a silly thing. I did exactly what production told me to do. We were all confused as judges. We weren’t told until it was live. They kept changing it,” she explained.

Paula says that she loved that it made people laugh, and she’s grateful for Idol fans coming to her defense. They’re just trying to stage an intervention, honey.
