Ok, so I looooove American Idol (even though I think it's a scam now), but what I want to know is where the hell did crazy Paula go? Girlfriend has got her act together this season and is looking gorgeous (love the new hair), when she speaks she is making sense, she is telling the bad people "yah, you suck" instead of babying them and most of all, her marble mouth has disappeared. I think that last year was really hard on her. She had to deal with that fool Corey Clark and then read all the mean crap people would write about her on the internet (hey! Don't point fingers at me, I didn't have this blog yet!). So, Idol should be a lot of fun this year. We are seeing some fairly interesting people during the auditions and I'll start commenting on them once they go to Hollywood. My greatest fear though, is that as happy as I am for Paula finally not acting like she is all drugged up and not making sense, is that without that, Idol just won't be Idol anymore. I love to watch Paula clap like a seal, I love to watch Paula get up and dance and love all over Simon when it appears she might have taken too much pain medication, I love to see her ramble on senselessly about some useless contestant and I love to turn on my TV's closed caption because I can't understand a word the girl is saying with her marble mouth. I'm happy for Paula, but damn, her new found sanity better not wreck Idol!
