Paula Abdul on her work ethic: "Here's the thing with me," she told The Times. "If you think 20 years ago, I was a Laker girl and having a No.1 single with Straight Up, and choreographing from 7:30 in the morning till 1 p.m. at The Tracey Ullman Show. Then I'd leave my assistant there and go down to Universal Studios and work on the George Michael 'Faith' tour, while two doors down Id be working on the Jackson reunion tour. Then Id go into the studio at midnight while at 5 a.m. Id pull into the Fox parking lot and sleep for a couple of hours. I thrive on that. I do lots of things, and I feel like Im circling back to where all the magic happened."
