Well it’s not a permanent job, but Paula Abdul has been tapped to emcee VH1’s Divas special on September 17th. This comes on the heels of her surprising departure from American Idol. It seems like an odd choice — “diva” is not a noun or adjective I would ever assign to Paula. Of course, I wouldn’t call Jordin Sparks a diva either and she’s going to be singing.
Somewhere along the way the divas who demand all white furniture in their dressing rooms and Cristal on ice were replaced with some singing Girl Scout troop. It’s disappointing, really. What was VH1 thinking?
