Paula Abdul Would Return to AMERICAN IDOL Reboot... But Not As A Judge

In a new interview with ET, Paula Abdul revealed that she would be up for returning to the recently announced reboot of AMERICAN IDOL, but not as a judge. The singer appeared on the FOX juggernaut singing competition for eight seasons, from 2002 to 2009, and reportedly left after salary negotiations fell through.

"I don't think I'd do the judging thing anymore" Abdul told ET. "But if they ever called me and they needed help or mentoring with kids, or anything like that. That's what I do, that's who I am."

Asked about reports that Katy Perry will receive $25 million to judge the rebooted version of the show on ABC, Abdul exclaimed, "Good for her! Let's just put it on record. I was not getting paid $25 million dollars."
