Paula Abdul Plans On Celebrating Her Belated Bat Mitzvah In Israel!

| Filed under: SIGHtingPaula Abdul

It's never too late to celebrate a birthday or a Bat Mitzvah, especially if you're Paula Abdul!

Sure, a Bat Mitzvah is usually for a 12 year-old Jewish girl, but that's not stopping Paula!

The ex-American Idol judge is currently taking in the amazing sights of Israel and is going on a spiritual journey to connect with her Jewish roots.

Paula talks about her spirituality and visiting the country as a woman:

"Beyond being Jewish, I've always found myself to be very much in tune with spirituality. I feel very grateful coming to Israel now, where as a woman I know who I am a lot more than even 10 years ago."

You also don't have a nonstop schedule like you did 10 years ago! Which means more time to relax and enjoy all that Israel has to offer!

Do you have a guest list ready for your belated Bat Mitzvah, yet?

Don't forget to invite us & your bestie, Simon Cowell!!

We'll be waiting patiently for our invite.

Mazel Tov, Paula!

So, So You Think You Can Dance's Paula Abdul thinks she can act? Well, we agree!

Paula wants to be the consummate triple threat performer: she's sang, she's danced, and now she wants to act!

In a recent interview, the ex-American Idol judge made it clear that she's ready to be judged on the airwaves herself:

“I’m broadening my horizons into creating and producing content, performing in scripted dramas and half-hour television programs. My love for television began a long time ago when I first started working with James L. Brooks on The Tracey Ullman Show. He became my mentor on the show…I’m definitely ready and excited to make the transition into acting.”

Well, we're all really excited too, Paula! You're forever our gurl!

If anyone can transition seamlessly in between the various performing arts, it's you! World, prepare to be Knocked Out by her acting chops!
