Paula Abdul claims that she has solved her addiction to painkillers. She’s also apparently going to release her new song and perform it on American Idol. I talked to Paula Abdul not too long ago on the phone and she claimed she’s never done drugs or drank alcohol. In fact she’s said this to a lot of people over the years, and just now came out to say ‘okay maybe I was holding back a little bit about the never doing those things that I said I didn’t do.’ Addiction is a serious thing and hopefully Abdul will feel like a healthier person now that she’s done with them. “Abdul wore a patch that delivered a pain medication about 80 times more potent than morphine, she told Ladies’ Home Journal.” Yikes. Well good luck, Paula. Maybe she’ll seem less like a sedated psychopath now, because the drugs certainly didn’t make her seem very easy to understand or to even hear.
