”Listen, Fox is smart for hiring me. They knew they needed a balance to the approach Simon was going to take. All of a sudden, ‘being nice’ is an accusation. I craft my criticism in a manner that’s constructive, that they can take and not be crushed by. That’s what I was hired to do, and even if it wasn’t, that’s who I am and who I will always be. I’m proud of that.” — American Idol’s PAULA ABDUL, explaining her ”good cop” role, on Zap2it.com
