Since February 1989, when she had her first big hit, Paula Abdul has had fantastic success.Her records have been selling in millions. She was born in Los Angeles and lives there now. Her whole life is about song and dance as she says. She planned the dancing in the American Oscars and the films ‘Coming to America’ and ‘The Doors’. In 1990 American high school students voted her the ‘hero of Young America’.The newspapers called her the ‘The New Madonna’. How does she feel about her success? “It’s wonderful,” she says. “I never expected it to be like this.” She’s very happy if people compare her to Madonna. “Madonna has had an incredible career. She is a hard-working girl who’s achieved so much.” But Paula hasn’t done everything yet. She’s been choreographing films for years but now she wants to star in one herself.
