“He never paid attention to me because he was too busy jamming and aspiring to be a great singer song writer and hanging out with other musicians in our neighborhood," Abdul said of Bolton's prowess as a babysitter.

“I'll just put it this way... we did not get along very well... I was seven," she said. "We had an L-shaped couch, and every time he would go out of the room, I would run on my knees to lock the door and I ran over a sharp pencil that was stuck between the cushions.

"Let’s just that I still have a scar because Michael Bolton was not a good babysitter,” Abdul said, adding that much later in life, they reunited with no hard feelings, and Bolton even asked if Abdul could choreograph his tour.

Abdul also broke her silence on the new American Idol judges' panel -- composed of Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson -- and she didn't sound too optimistic in her appraisal.

“We will have to watch and see," the Straight Up singer said. "I hope they have at least one ounce as much success with the show that I was able to have.”
