Life After Paula: Simon Speaks

Simon Cowell finally broke his silence about Paula Abdul Friday when he spoke very briefly to “People.”

He told the magazine, “I’m going to miss her. She’s my buddy.” He went on to say that he has talked to her every day since her famous tweet last Tuesday. “Paula has been very cool about the whole thing. And let me tell you, Paula is going to be fine.”

Simon gave the comments in Denver, where filming for season nine of “Idol” has begun. Kara arrived at the auditions wearing a black dress, which she told “People” was because she was in mourning over Paula.

Randy Jackson echoed Kara’s sentiments by saying, “I think I may cry today. It’s weird.”
