Paula Trips Up, Still Divalicious


No one can contend with Simon Cowell every day, get publicly scrutinized regularly, have unflattering interviews go viral in ten minutes, and still be as beloved as Paula Abdul. Perhaps we love her because of those things, not in spite of them, but she always manages a positive outlook and recovers from them no worse for the wear. Even tonight at VH1 Divas, Paula stumbled, literally, during her opening number, but she kept right on dancing and fulfilling her hosting duties, continuing to poke fun of herself, go head to head with the worst celebrity mocker of all, Kathy Griffin, and still come out of it on top.

    Love Paula, but don’t understand why they think these women are divas? It seems like an American Idol reunion. C’mon Sheryl Crowe and Melissa Etheridge are more Diva worthy than who they got.

    Paula Abdul is hosting the Diva awards show? Man, really? Since when is Paul Abdul a diva or much of anything other than a grievance and time waster? I could see if they had her doing commercials so that people could could laugh at her utter stupidity and in turn attract viewers to the show, but why is she hosting? Mine as well of had Tyra Banks host instead, even that +~^_@$+%_$@`&#+$~ is more “diva” than Miss (or Mr.?) Paula Abdul. Actually, you know who is the most diva and should have hosted? Beyonce baby. Beyonce had one of the greatest videos of all time with “Single Ladies” and is one of the greatest performers of all time. No offense, but Beyonce Knowles should have hosted, she is one of the most important of all people of all time. Thank You. I don’t want to step on anyones emotions, but for real: Beyonce should have hosted and won every award.

    Results are in: Paula sucks, go back to the ’80′s. With all due respect, I’m really happy for everyone on the show performing, but why isn’t Beyonce performing tonight? She is one of the greatest and most important artists of all time. Her “Single Ladies” video is one of the greatest of all time. Beyonce is the greatest and most timeless female artist of all time. Thank You.

  4. Congratulations VH1 for an outstanding show! The production was fabulous, the writers are to be applauded (bout time Paula had this strong foundation for her performance-Paula hang on to them for the rest of your career!), and the entertainers should receive costume awards-every one of them. It was Oscar night only better……………

    Looking forward to Paula’s future, perhaps she needs her own show.
