Paula Julie Abdul (born June 19, 1962) is an American singer, dancer, choreographer, actress, and television personality. She began her career as a cheerleader for the Los Angeles Lakers at the age of 18 and later became the head choreographer for the Laker Girls, where she was discovered by The Jacksons. After choreographing music videos for Janet Jackson, Abdul became a choreographer at the height of the music video era and soon thereafter she was signed to Virgin Records. Her debut studio album Forever Your Girl (1988) became one of the most successful debut albums at that time, selling seven million copies in the United States and setting a record for the most number-one singles from a debut album on the Billboard Hot 100 chart: "Straight Up", "Forever Your Girl", "Cold Hearted", and "Opposites Attract". Her second album Spellbound (1991) scored her two more Billboard Hot 100 chart toppers: "Rush Rush" and "The Promise of a New Day". Her six number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 tie her with Ariana Grande and Diana Ross for seventh among the female solo performers who have topped the chart.

Great singer

dwayne99Sep 28, 2016

This site looks cool.

jmullen of coloradoJan 30, 2014

I want to rephrase that Paula is a heck of a singer and dancer, not a hack of a dancer. Also very misunderstood as well.

jmullen of coloradoJan 30, 2014

A member of the media 10 years ago called her Paula Abfool. Not cool towards a lady who has had a heartbreaking social life but who is a hack of a dancer!

sleazequeenSep 16, 2013

I hope it's true she is back with Arsenio

rn_tracy1_rnrn_tracy1_rnApr 25, 2013
