THE LATEST ON WHY PAULA ABDUL LEFT “AMERICAN IDOL”

The “New York Times” has published an article claiming that PAULA ABDUL’S decision to leave “American Idol” wasn’t a whim or a negotiating tactic and that her frustration with the show was deeper than just money.

Sure, she reportedly wanted to more than TRIPLE her salary. She had been making around $3 million per season and we’ve heard she wanted to have that bumped to at least $10 million. But there was a reason for that.

A so-called “source close to Paula” says that Paula wanted to make up for an endorsement she lost in 2006 with an unnamed “major fashion label

Supposedly, Paula believed she lost the endorsement because of the persistent substance abuse rumors that resulted from her bizarre and erratic behavior on “Idol”.

And she didn’t feel the show did enough to back her up and shoot down those rumors.

The source says, quote, “She perceived that the incident had a negative impact on her career.” The “Times” also says she felt “undermined and disrespected for years.”

Paula and “Idol” may have been drifting apart for a while now. The “Times” says Paula initially told producers that she would not return unless they could agree on an extension before the end of this past season of “Idol”.

Obviously, that didn’t happen. In fact, as you may remember, in the middle of July, Paula’s manager publicly claimed that she had yet to even receive an offer.

The source adds, quote, “Paula didn’t place as much importance on remaining on the show as some other people did. She thinks there are a lot of opportunities out there for her, and she will be fine without that show.”

Maybe that was mutual. The “Times” quotes a “person close to the negotiations” saying: “A lot of people at Fox had mixed feelings about Paula. Some of the people who were having to deal with her on a day-to-day basis didn’t want her back.”

This is all well and good but you know MONEY is the bottom line. These “frustrations” are really just a result of “Idol” low-balling her.

Does anyone NOT think that if Paula was offered $10 million a year that she’d completely forget about all this or that if “Idol” really wanted her they’d give her a huge raise like they did for RYAN SEACREST and SIMON COWELL?

So what’s Paula’s next move???

There are reports that Paula spent Tuesday afternoon talking with ABC boss Stephen McPherson, who wants her to be a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars”.

For what it’s worth, TMZ claims she won’t be a guest judge on “Dancing”, because she, quote, “doesn’t get along” with judge CARRIE ANN INABA.

–There’s also talk that ABC is thinking about giving Paula her own show, but there aren’t any details on that. (–She’s also in talks to do a guest spot on “Ugly Betty”.)

“People” magazine says NBC is also interested in doing something with her although they didn’t provide any specifics.

And then there’s that speculation about Paula appearing on the fall season of Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance”. Plus, there are reports that Paula has also received an offer from “AUSTRALIAN Idol”.

And Paula has posted a message on Twitter saying, quote, “I’ve got a busy week filled with network meetings. I’m looking forward to all the new projects up ahead.”

Of course, there are still a lot of people who believe she’ll eventually end up returning to “Idol” and you can count KELLY CLARKSON among them.

In a recent interview, she said, quote, “I totally think they’re doing that for drama. I know those producers they’re doing that for drama. She’s totally probably going to come back.” (Yes, that’s a “totally probably” guarantee from Kelly.)

NEW LL COOL J “BILLIE JEAN DREAMS” MICHAEL JACKSON TRIBUTE

A GUY IN CALIFORNIA TRYS TO SELL A 37-INCH FLAT-SCREEN TV… THAT WAS ACTUALLY AN OVEN DOOR IN DISGUISE!!

I understand that times are tough right now and that we’re all doing what we can to get by, but THIS is just not cool . . .

Last week, 52-year-old Anthony Myles of Richmond, California, was arrested for driving on a suspended license. But the reason Anthony was pulled over in the first place is much more interesting. Get this . . .

It seems Anthony had been hanging out in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart trying to sell a 37-inch flat-screen TV for $100 which is a great price.

Except that it WASN’T actually a flat-screen TV Anthony was trying to sell. It was a GLASS OVEN DOOR that he’d disguised with stickers and other nonsense to make it LOOK like a flat-screen TV.

According to the cop who arrested Anthony, quote, “It was very ingenious. If you were a bargain hunter, you might think, ‘Wow, this is the deal of the day.’”

And that is exactly why you don’t buy electronics, or anything else for that matter, out of the back of a truck, no matter how good the deal sounds.

ROYCE DA 5′ 9″ CONFRONTS RAEKWONS CAMP ….FOOTAGE HERE!!

After the physical altercation last Saturday (August 8th) between Slaughterhouse’s Joe Budden and Raekwon’s Ice Water crew at the Rock the Bells stop in L.A., tension was high between both camps. XXLMag.com has obtained exclusive video footage of Budden’s partner-in-rhyme Royce da 5′9″ speaking to one of The Chef’s associates, that night.

While RTB Founder Chang Weisberg spoke to XXL on Monday and said the two had squashed their beef before performing at RTB’s last stop in San Francisco on Sunday, it seems like the battle is far from over.

Just yesterday Budden released several YouTube videos challenging Rae to a fight. Raekwon has yet to comment on the incident.

BOXING NEWS: FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR VS JUAN MARQUEZ: TALE OF THE TAPE

So much has been made of the size disparity you would think Floyd is fighting a kneeling midget.

I didn’t realize how big Marquez upper body is compared to Floyd. And check the difference in fist size


MARQUEZ: “I KNOW WHERE HE’S BEEN HURT AND I’M GOING FOR IT!”


Reports out of Mexico City, where five-time World Champion Juan Manuel Marquez is back in training for his scheduled September 19 bout (at MGM Grand in Las Vegas and televised live on HBO Pay-Per-View®) against Floyd Mayweather (Mayweather vs. Marquez “Number One/Numero Uno”), confirm that Marquez is bigger, stronger and punching “to the body” harder than ever as he pushes his training regime to new heights in preparation for his ultimate challenge against Mayweather.

Eyewitnesses say it is evident that not only is Marquez bigger, but his training includes a special focus on body work and technique as he looks to defeat the undefeated Mayweather, a six-time World Champion in five weight divisions.

“I know where he’s been hurt and I’m going for it,” said Marquez. “He is vulnerable now and I will take advantage of his weakness with a body attack that emphasizes two things-the right and the left.”

Another testament to this new resolve are his grueling two-hour runs in the mountains of Nevado de Toluca at a staggering elevation of 13,500 feet.

“The mountain is a magic place and gives me the freedom to visualize the night of the fight and how I am going to beat him,” said Marquez. “It is also building my endurance, making my legs stronger and building muscle across my whole body.”

Marquez has also been adding weight as he works through technique in training.

Marquez finished, “I’ve been working gradually with the extra weight, which is going to be pure muscle and make me stronger than ever by the time I step in the ring September 19. Mayweather is going to be the first one to feel the difference.”

Mayweather Takes IT to MMA and Puts Down Pacman’s Promoter

Floyd Mayweather Jr. might not be talking much about the rib injury that delayed his fight with Juan Manuel Marquez, but that seems like the only topic not up for discussion.

In a recent interview with CBSSports.com, “Pretty Boy Floyd” rapped on Marquez and Pacquiao, and took a monster shot at mixed martial arts, saying that the sport which his Sept. 19 fight vs. Marquez is competing head-to-head against (UFC 103 is in Dallas the same night) is for “beer drinkers, boxing is for everybody.”

“You can’t take my shoes off, and take my shirt off and throw me in a cage. You do that with animals, you don’t do that with humans,” said a bold Mayweather. “It takes true skills to be in the sport of boxing.”

While Mayweather probably should have stopped his brash statements there — considering many of the MMA fans he was offending probably helped him become boxing’s “pay-per-view king” by purchasing his blockbuster fights — he didn’t, saying MMA was created by white fighters who couldn’t cut it in the ring.

“In boxing, we know who’s dominating. Black fighters and Hispanic fighters is dominating in this sport,” Mayweather continued. “And this is not a racial statement but there’s no white fighters in boxing that’s dominating, so they had to go to something else and start something new.”

When the subject turned to a much-anticipated match with Manny Pacquiao (whose fight against Miguel Cotto is in November), Mayweather said the Filipino superstar would have to become his own boss before he could consider a bout.

“Everybody wants to see the Pacquiao fight, but it doesn’t work like that. Pacquiao isn’t his own boss and he’s giving up 27 percent of his money to Bob Arum,” Mayweather said. “Once he becomes his own boss, then we can talk. If he’s not his own boss I ain’t got nothing to say to him.”

But just in case he does, Mayweather says you know where to find him.

“It’s not hard to find me. Everybody know I’m in Las Vegas,” he said. “Just look for the biggest mansion and the prettiest Rolls-Royce — that’s me.”
