Rosie Uses Paula in Her Poem

In a recent blog entry, that I can only partially understand, per usual, Rosie O’Donnell mentions Paula Abdul on more than one occasion. And I can’t tell exactly if she’s sympathizing with her, or condemning her for enjoying (and publicly appearing to suffer) under the trappings of her celebrity lifestyle. She starts off by saying, “right now/paula abdul would yell action/and the result would be/what we all see.” She goes on to describe the “Hey Paula” star as “broken, fragile, pain filled, love less, raw, vulnerable, needy.” She tells the “American Idol” judge:

hey paula
we cringe
at r selves
thru u

And then she goes on to wax poetic about renting jet skis. I’m so confused. Maybe I should have paid better attention in my English classes in college. Or maybe not have gone at all.
