Paula Abdul left her status on the judge’s panel of American Idol up in the air on on Thursday’s Late Show with David Letterman.
She told the show’s 62-year-old host that while she loves being on the panel, she ‘s unsure whether she will for the show’s upcoming ninth season. “I never said [I wasn’t returning],” she said. “I just said that I’m not sure — it’s called, um, ‘negotiating.'”
The multi-platinum recording artist-turned-TV judge denied that she has any bad blood with her fellow judge, Kara DioGuardi. “Kara’s great! I don’t understand why they do this to women; they love to pit women against each other,” she said. “Maybe because it’s sexier, I don’t know. Maybe mud wrestling, the whole thing.”
