A friend of mine just sent me an e-mail directing me to Paula Abdul’s Twitter page to read this:
With sadness in my heart, I’ve decided not to return to #IDOL. I’ll miss nurturing all the new talent, but most of all..Cont'd...
I’ll miss nurturing all the new talent,but most of all being a part of a show that I helped from day1become an international phenomenon.
What I want to say most, is how much I appreciate the undying support and enormous love that you have showered upon me
It truly has been breathtaking, especially over the past month
I do without any doubt have the BEST fans in the entire world and I love you all...
Let me just say that I think this is a HUGE mistake. I think FOX should have given Paula the money. The show is not going to be the same and nowhere near as fun.
And I think that Simon and Randy will give Kara such a hard time, she’ll wish that Paula had returned instead of her.
What do you guys think? Will you miss Paula as much as I will?
UPDATE: I should say that there is still a chance this is a negotiating ploy, but I don't think so. I think she's gone. MJ of MJ's Big Blog disagrees and says she thinks that Paula timed her tweets just as tonight's Idols Live concert was ending so that fans following the concert on Twitter would get outraged and start another movement. If they do, I'm on board...
