Teen Choice: Paula Abdul's Take

Aug 23rd, 2006

The Idol judge calls Rihanna's performance "amazing," Dane Cook's Mischa Barton joke "cruel"

Paula Abdul is no stranger to award shows, but she was particularly excited to be a part of Teen Choice 2006. "My teen fans are the best, and I adore them," the American Idol judge tells "It was such a fantastic event, and one that I loved being a part of." With such an enthusiastic endorsement, we asked Paula to give us her thoughts on the night's noteworthy moments:

Running into Zac Efron on the red carpet:
"Zac is a sweetheart. He is certainly the most talented young, up-and-coming talent [out there]. I'm so happy for the kids of High School Musical. I adore them all -- the film is fantastic!"

Rihanna's performance:
"It was absolutely amazing. She's very talented. Rihanna and I spoke after the show, and she told me that her number was inspired by my choreography for the 1990 American Music Awards, which I received an Emmy for. She's very sweet."

Jessica's joke that Paula might not date Dane Cook because he's "not a contestant" (referring to the Corey Clark scandal):
"I'm the first one to poke fun at myself, but it's not so funny when such a joke comes from the same network that American Idol is on. The joke's been done, and it's old. Next!"

Kevin Federline's performance, introduced by Britney Spears:
"Britney looked beautiful and happy, and so proud of her husband, Kevin. I'm very happy for them both, and I wish Kevin the best on his musical journey."

Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom on stage together:
"Muy caliente!"

Dane offering skinny Mischa Barton a sandwich:
"Not so funny. It's clear that she's a naturally thin girl, so it just seemed a bit cruel, you know?"

Nick Lachey saying it was "awkward" to accept Choice Love Song on a show Jessica was hosting:
"Yes, it was very awkward! But he kept his sense of humor during a time when he needed it most."

Jessica's many costume changes:
"She looked beautiful. Jessica is a trendsetter for sure!"

Presenting the Choice Rock Band award to Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz and Patrick Stump:
"Pete and Patrick are great guys! They actually told me that they'd downloaded [my 1990 hit] 'Opposites Attract' to their iPod earlier that day!"

Brooke Hogan accepting the Choice Grill award:
"Now THAT was hilarious!"
