I heard some really upsetting news this past week. You probably heard by now because it’s everywhere. Paula Abdul might not come back to American Idol this upcoming season. It’s like peanut butter without jelly, just unnatural. I was a fan of Idol the first couple of seasons, but now I feel like it’s a water-downed version of its former glory. Regardless of what the show has turned into, my heart hurts over the loss of what is now the best part of Idol. It ultimately comes down to money. Simon gets a big chunk because he’s Simon, and Ryan Seacrest (if that is his real name) is also getting a big chunk leaving Paula at the bottom of the pay list. I mean, Paula is just as valuable as Simon, and as for Seacrest, well I wouldn’t necessarily miss him. All he does is say, “This is American Idol,” “You are safe,” and argues with Simon when he tries to out him. I say, give Paula what she wants and get a cheaper, funnier host. – Allyson
