Paula Abdul Biography
In the wake of Madonna's success, many dance-pop divas filled the charts, but out of them all,
Paula Abdul was the only one who sustained a career. The former L.A. Lakers cheerleader and choreographer began to make inroads in pop music when she was hired as an assistant dance director on the
Jacksons' Victory tour, which led to a job choreographing Janet
Jackson's videos for Control. Paula Abdul's work on Jackson's videos helped make the album a hit, making her a sought-after choreographer. After working on The Tracy Ullman Show and videos for
Top, Duran Duran, and the Pointer Sisters, Paula
Abdul began a recording career, releasing her debut album, Forever Your Girl, in 1988. The first two singles drawn from the record were moderate hits, but the release of "Straight Up" at the end of the year made her a superstar. Staying at the top of the charts for three weeks, "Straight Up" began a string of six number one singles (with "The Way That You Love Me"
re-charting at number three in 1989) that ran through the summer of 1991.

|Paula Abdul's singles were hits not because her singing was exceptional -- her voice is thin and transparent -- but because she worked with savvy producers who had a knack for picking songs with solid pop and dance hooks. Abdul's spectacular big-budget videos helped push the sales of Forever Your Girl past seven million in the U.S. alone. While her second album, 1991's Spellbound, wasn't as successful, it still sold over three million copies and spent two weeks at number one.
After Spellbound, Paula Abdul took a few years off. During that time, she successfully fought a lawsuit filed by a former backup singer who alleged it was she, not
Paula Abdul, who had sung on Forever Your Girl. Abdul released her third album, Head Over Heels, in the summer of 1995. ~ Stephen Thomas
