Paula blames her crazy behavior on Simon

Paula Abdul has an explanation for her recent crazy behavior on American Idol 5: it’s all Simon’s fault. And no, Simon is not a friend of Jack Daniels or Jose Cuervo or Jim Beam or Ernest and Julio Gallo or Johnny Walker. No, Simon is fellow judge Simon Cowell.

Paula says, “He’s worse than ever. If they say, ‘Paula is going crazy,’ the reason is Simon is whispering things in my ear, like, ‘What’s the price of beans?’ Things that make no sense at all,” she tells In Touch Weekly, according to MSNBC’s Jeannette Walls.

Tragically, she doesn’t explain why she is forced to react to those crazy statements, or why his comments also cause her eyes to glaze over.
