Was Paula Abdul Drunk?
(antiMusic) TMZ thinks they know why Paula Abdul screwed up her lines on American Idol, seems that Paula may have been at the bottle. Here is the TMZ report: Paula's loopy antics were the highlight of an otherwise boring "American Idol" episode -- and TMZ has learned a mid-afternoon cocktail may be to blame.
Abdul was bubbly when she left Maggiano's around 1:00 PM yesterday and had to have an assistant shut her up. Spies inside tell TMZ that Abdul was served at least one martini while in the restaurant.
Must have been a stiff drink or she's a major lightweight -- "Idol" didn't go live for another four hours. - Watch the video here
