Paula Abdul Confirms Wednesday’s Idol Appreance, Premiers her New Song, Admits to Drug Use

Paula Abdul will be performing her new single “I’m Just Here for the Music” on this Wednesday’s American Idol results show.

She confirmed the rumors that were floating around the internet this morning on Ryan Seacrest’s KISS LA morning radio show.

Listen to “I’m Just Here For the Music”: thanks renee!

I’m Just Here For the Music

Hm. Not my cuppa exactly. It sounds super old-school. Not hearing this on radio at all. Maybe it’ll get some club play like her last single…

Update: According to the New York Post, Paula is now admitting to a drug addiction. So she lied to ABC News’ Cynthia McFadden? SHOCK. Not.

Since she’s preparing to return to the music scene, the timing seemed right to bare her soul over the drug habit that she’s recently kicked.

For the first time, Abdul reveals how hard it was for her to detox from a 12-year-long painkiller addiction.

“I could have killed myself, ” she tells this month’s issue of Ladies’ Home Journal.

The withdrawal was “the worst thing. I was freezing cold, then sweating hot, then chattering and in so much pain. It was excruciating. But at my very core, I did not like existing the way I had been.”

Paula swears she was never under the influence while filming American Idol. Yeah, right. Abdul says she kicked the habit last Thanksgiving during a stay at a spa resort.

No wonder her remarks from the judges panel seem so lucid this year…
