Paula Abdul claims that she has been a heavy influence on pop stars like Beyonce and Rihanna [Website – Amy Grindhouse].
The American Idol judge, 46, says that modern-day pop tarts have stolen her crown. She also thinks her turdy 80′s hits are a big part of the reason for their success:
“My videos stand the test of time. They are like the almanac for every performer. Even Rhianna has come up to me and said ‘I hope you don’t mind.’ And Beyonce. You can see the influence of what I’ve done.”
“It’s really fun to see that I’ve left a mark. It was my idea to create an animated character. It takes a lot of focus, a lot time, and a lot of money.”
