Paula Abdul's Freudian Crush On Cowell
American Idol judge Paula Abdul is struggling to work alongside her fellow panelist Simon Cowell - because she is harbouring a secret crush for the music mogul. ( FF )
The Grammy-winning singer/choreographer admits she subconsciously fancies the British star - dubbed TV's Mr Nasty - even though she finds his sharp-tongued comments hard to take.
The 44-year-old says, "Just when you think we're all getting on, Simon turns and we get back into our little quarrels. I suppose it's quite funny to watch, but he's so infuriating.
"Maybe ( I fancy Cowell). Subconsciously. In a really weird, Freudian way. We have a good work balance. We've all had moments where we've walked off because of Simon, but he's even walked off because of himself".
