Paula Abdul: 'I'm Not High Or Drunk, Just Tired'
And the negative press didn't end there - thanks, in part, to bizarre appearances on Idol and her reality TV show Hey Paula, during which she appeared to struggle to stay awake during some scenes.
She tells WENN, "Firstly, I’ve never been drunk in my life, I don’t like it (alcohol). It’s not my thing. Spending money on clothes and shoes that’s another thing. And you can check my medical records, I was never on (painkillers) Oxycontin or Vicadin or anything like that. I was on nerve medicine and anti-inflammatories (for a neck injury she suffered in 1992)."
But she understands how certain behavior patterns have fueled the rumors about her: "Because I’m falling asleep and a camera is on me."
