pop star-turned-American Idol judge Paula Abdul has hit back at new reports she's often high or drunk on TV, insisting she just falls asleep easily.
The tired 'Straight Up' singer has fought rumours about her sobriety ever since she appeared to be drunk on a TV news show last year, slurring her words and appearing to be out of it.
Paula Abdul tells WENN, "Firstly, I've never been drunk in my life, I don't like it (alcohol). It's not my thing. Spending money on clothes and shoes that's another thing.
"And you can check my medical records, I was never on (painkillers) Oxycontin or Vicodin or anything like that. I was on nerve medicine and anti-inflammatories (for a neck injury she suffered in 1992).
