Paula Abdul was on the phone with Johnjay and Rich of 104.7 KISS FM in Phoenix on Wednesday (January 7) to promote her MTV show ‘RAW’. They talked about how she makes news whenever she does anything, how people want to hear drama, how ‘RAW’ may become an annual event, ‘American Idol’ starting up again, her belief that ‘Nip/Tuck’ has become “very strange” in the last couple seasons, wanting to do a talk show but denying reports that she’s signed on to do one later this year, and Justin Guarini being in ‘Gone Country’.
They then moved on to her new song ‘Boombox’, a cover of a Kylie Minogue release. The DJs had a copy of the song, but Paula didn’t want them to play it yet since it’s not supposed to come out for a couple weeks. They played about 45 seconds of the song, and they were convinced it was a hit. Paula wouldn’t reveal details of its music video, and though they talked about the song and its video for several minutes, Abdul never mentioned it was a Kylie cover, no doubt angering the Australian pop star’s fans.
The interview, and the ‘Boombox’ snippet 11 minutes in, at johnjayandrich.1047kissfm.com has since been removed.
