Paula's Super Show -- Straight Up Catastrophe?

1/16/2008 6:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Hyper-sentimental Paula Abdul is prepping for her big comeback gig at the Super Bowl -- but it looks like the whole thing could be a golden ticket to her biggest and most public meltdown yet!

A source close to Paula and familiar with preparations tells TMZ that it's going to be "a massive disaster" -- exact words -- and that the whole thing is a "bad, bad idea." The "AI" judgewreck has already lost her voice in rehearsals for the show, and we're told she isn't going to sing live in Arizona (duh). Her vocals, therefore, will be "enhanced." Pitchy keen!

Paula will "perform" her new single -- which is being produced by fellow "Idol" judge Randy Jackson, but we hear that people around her are wondering why she doesn't just stick to her old stuff, like "Straight Up" or "Cold Hearted Snake."

Paula was cool back in the day but now she needs to go away gracefully....what do we ever hear of her except for AI (boring) and airport meltdowns?

Man, I seriously didn't realize how many bitter people there were on the Internet. This whole drug rumor thing is so old, oh my god get over it. Paula is amazing and I hope she does perform and prove all you untalented idiots who don't know what good music is, wrong. And can we say jealous? Geez, it's not her fault she's gorgeous and talented while most of you are wasting time and energy to insult people.

She never really did her own singing. Yvette Marine Barlowe did, sure Paula won the suit but WE all know the truth.

I am with you Pootytang. I too rather see Britney than crazy Paula. I guess the NFL is hard up for stars...oh well!

This goes not only for Paula, but for any performer who would lip-sync before a live audience: stay home and let someone with talent sing live for those who pay money for live shows.. not fakers

People rather see someone fall, crumble and meltdown than wish them well!!!! It is sick!! Remember YOU GET WHAT YOU PUT OUT IN THE UNIVERSE!!!! KARMA!!! I wish her well and would love to see a comeback, besides her career spawned over a decade and we are still talking about her. Good Luck Paula, all these haters still bought your albums!!!
We still love you!!! The new single is impressive!!!
