Paula Abdul Speaks After X Factor Firing!

paula abdul x factor fired

We were SHOCKED and SUPER SAD to see Paula Abdul on the list of those fired in the X Factor job massacre!

While we totally understood others on that list, Paula has been with Simon Cowell from day one!!

So what gives??

Maybe her statement will shed some light:

Yes, it’s true; I won’t be returning to The X Factor next season.

I’ve learned through my longevity in this industry that business decisions often times override personal considerations. Simon and I, along with Fox and Fremantle, have been communicating about this for a while now, and I have absolute understanding of the situation.

Simon is, and will remain a dear friend of mine and I’ve treasured my experience working this past season with my extended family at Fox and Fremantle. I want nothing more than for The X Factor to exceed ALL of their wildest dreams. This truly has been a blessing and I am most grateful.

Hmmm… okay, so from what we're seeing, this decision probably wasn't Simon's favorite thing to do, but he needed to do it for better business??

The truth hurts but we can see execs recommending someone fresh to a judge's table… or something else along those lines.

Sigh. We'll miss Paula, but we can't wait to see who's new!! We vote Perez!!

    why the fuck would they pick you? you're not even that famous.

    She is a true professional. Hollywood will forgive ANYTHING except snarking at the management or producers. She looks great too. Except one eye smaller than the other…but other than that nearly perfect!



  3. 3

    Excellent worded statement. You know she is hurt and angry. This decision makes no sense to me because she is relatively well liked. Wonder if she got any money out of this decision. Good luck to her and hope she finds something else very very soon.

    See Ya!! Couldnt stand her babbling and cant make a vote that she was hired(payed) for!

    The firing probably has something to do with her being a tool and an embarrassment.



  6. 6

    I think the issue was it felt too much like Idol to have her around they need some different blood I'd still be cool with Cheryl coming back, but that's wishful thinking on my part I'm sure.

    they are axing all the judges.. interesting to see who will be doing it next… and Perez, no offence- but why on earth would you be a judge, you know nothing of talent! *cue* your failed record label..

    Paula has been a class act. I liked her on there. They should keep her and replace Nicole with Mel B. Love Mel B. They need a warmer and funnier host. KEEP PAULA.
