Paula Julie Abdul (born June 19, 1962) is an American dancer, choreographer, singer, and television personality. In the 1980s her career rose rapidly, from being a cheerleader for the Los Angeles Lakers to being a sought-after choreographer at the height of the music video era, then to being a pop music singer with a string of top hits in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
After that she suffered a series of reverses in her professional and personal life, until she found renewed fame and success in the 2000s as a sympathetic judge on the highly rated television series American Idol (2001-present).
Paula has released 3 (studio) hit albums so far..
'Forever Your Girl' (1988), 'Spellbound; (1991) & 'Head Over Heels'(1995). She wrote the song 'Spinning Around' as a come-back song in 1999 but ended up giving the song to Kylie Minogue to record for Miss Minogue's 2000 'pop' comeback instead.
