American Idol judge Paula Abdul canceled media interviews on Friday after an
online video emerged of her slurring her way through a TV interview a day earlier. Homegirl claims to "never have been drunk" before, and if thats the case, than she must have been high on some hardcore pills.
Paula's spokesperson, Ballard said the interview was one of the last in a string of question-and-answer sessions she had done over two hours on Thursday ahead of a new season of American Idol, debuting next week on the Fox network.
"She was exhausted. This was at the end of three days of press (interviews and appearances), and she has had cameras following her around for a reality TV show too," said Ballard, referring to a new documentary series about the star's life.
"She was sitting in a room with just a camera and a mic on, and the controllers dropped the sound twice, which is why she rolled her eyes."
Ballard said Abdul, 44, had cancelled all media interviews on Friday because she had a sore throat after sitting in the chilly studio on Thursday. Ya sure!
"She never drinks. I have known Paula Abdul since she was 13, and I have never seen her drink ever in my life. ... And no, she is not on any kind of medication," he said. "She was a little tired."
