Who dating paula abdul
Abdul was born in San Fernando, California, to Jewish parents.
Abdul's father, Harry Abdul, was born into the Syrian Jewish community in Aleppo, Syria, was raised in Brazil, and subsequently immigrated to the United States.
At 15, she received a scholarship to a dance camp near Palm Springs, and in 1978 appeared in a low-budget Independent musical film, Junior High School.
Abdul studied broadcasting at the California State University, Northridge.
"Spinning Around" was a dance-pop track intended to be the lead single on Abdul's follow-up album to Head over Heels. While Abdul took a break from the music industry, she remained busy behind the scenes.
But the album never materialized, and "Spinning Around" was instead given to Kylie Minogue. Abdul served as the choreographer for several film and theater productions, including the 1998 musical Reefer Madness and the cheerleading scenes in the 1999 film American Beauty (she had previously also choreographed the 1991 film The Doors).
A remix album, Shut Up and Dance, was also released and reached No.
7 on Billboard's album chart, becoming one of the most successful remix albums to date.
We started out just as friends...artist and choreographer.
Later that year, fellow American Idol judge Simon Cowell invited her to be a guest judge at some of the early auditions for the third series of his similar UK talent show The X Factor.
Abdul was present at the initial audition of the eventual winner, Leona Lewis. Abdul has reported other songs that she is working on such as, "Boom Box." Abdul also made a brief guest appearance in season 3 episode 1 of the British television Comedy-Drama Hotel Babylon, which aired in the United Kingdom on February 19, 2008.
The first single from Spellbound was the ballad, "Rush Rush", which topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for five consecutive weeks, and was noted for its music video and Rebel Without a Cause motif featuring Keanu Reeves in the James Dean role.
"The Promise of a New Day", the second release from the album, also hit No. "Ain't Never Gonna Give You Up" was the album's third and final single.
