Paula Abdul has a career that spans generations and continues to grow every day. Whether you recognize her from her debut in pop music or the first years of American Idol, Paula Abdul is a powerhouse in the music industry and beyond. Abdul’s pursuit of music was inspired at just four years old. She shared, “my first memory with music was more of an audio-visual experience. It was when I saw my first M.G.M. musical, Singin' in the Rain.” In fact, if she could perform in any musical era, she would choose “the era of M.G.M. musicals because it was such a magical and exciting era in terms of innovation and creativity, without all the technology we have today.” Abdul’s career that spanned throughout the innovation of technology in entertainment is further evidence of her adaptability and success. Since that first encounter with Gene Kelly, Abdul went on to choreograph for The Jackson 5 and Janet Jackson, served as an original judge on American Idol, and more recently had her own Las Vegas residency. Her favorite part about her residency was “that I was literally living one of my biggest dreams... and it finally came true!” Not only did it inspire her, but she hoped it inspired her audience as well: “I wanted people to leave my performances feeling so fired up and inspired that they ACTIVELY began to pursue their dreams, regardless of age, height, weight, nationality or sexual orientation may be.” She truly uses her multiple talents of singing, dancing, and acting to put on powerful shows that inspire others. When discussing highlights of her impressive career, Abdul couldn’t choose just one and we ended up discussing six. These memories included her first Emmy, receiving the Ariadne Getty Ally Award, choreographing the Oscars and the

wedding dance in Coming to America, her Billboard performance, and of course her Las Vegas residency. Even though she has many highlights, she has pulled a very important lesson from all of her experiences: “the most important lesson I’ve learned from my career: if you walk in gratitude miracles can happen.” Abdul also takes self-care seriously and makes sure to practice healthy habits: “I eat clean, I stretch and workout regularly to maintain my strength and endurance, and I listen to my body by getting rest and staying hydrated!” Abdul highlights that even the most successful people need breaks in order to grow. There was a lot of reminiscing, but Abdul also shared what she is looking forward to and who she has her eye on in the music industry. Some of her go-to songs to sing in the shower are “Don’t Start Now” by Dua Lipa, “Rain on Me” by Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga, and “Sorry Not Sorry” by Demi Lovato. Two other artists that have the Paula Abdul stamp of approval are Childish Gambino and “Diplo! I’ve been following him for a while, and I LOVE what he’s done with dance music!!!” Even though 2020 has brought many challenges, Abdul has taken full advantage of new experiences. She admitted that “before the lockdown, I’d never taken any classes online. Now taking several web-based classes! From salsa to Zumba to barre workouts, and many others in between!” She is looking forward “to new opportunities and to new ways to create” in the new year, including a TV show she has coming out. While Paula Abdul surely does not need us wishing her luck, we wish her the best in 2021 and beyond as she builds on an already magnificent career in entertainment.

As an actress, what are some reasons that could have kept you from pursuing this career? Were there any obstacles that would have pushed you onto a different career path? I think not booking roles could have pushed me into a different career path. Sometimes doubtful thoughts can lead one to comprise. I learned not to compromise. Was there a sign/person/event that pushed you towards this career?  My mom’s unwavering support pushed me towards my acting career. In what ways do you believe Sony’s reboot of THE CRAFT, is unique? I believe this Craft puts a microscopic lens on what it means to be a young women coming into her power in witchcraft during today’s time. What was your favorite scene to shoot?  It’s hard to decide because every scene had its own magical moment. On set (your home) of SOCIAL DISTANCE, what was it that drew you the most to your character? What drew me to my character was Ayana’s ability to stand firm in her beliefs while still being thoughtful to others. What lessons did you learn from that experience?  I learned that there are many ways to protest. In what ways do you believe people can help promote positive change and acceptance?  To try to see themselves in others. Tell us more about your family. What is a family tradition of yours?  I have a very tight knit family. We love being around each other. A family tradition we have is that everyone’s birthday is treated like New Years. We stay up until Midnight and then we all hug, scream Happy Birthday and eventually go to bed. What is your favorite  accomplishment on your resume and why? I have no favorites. I love all my roles and have learned something from each of them. What can fans expect next? I am currently working on POWER BOOK III: RAISING KANAN and I can’t wait for fans to see it next year.
