Happy birthday to Paula Abdul, who's 50 years old today. The former cheerleader, choreographer, actress and American Idol judge is of course first and foremost a pop star, having scored an impressive six number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. "Straight Up" from debut album Forever Your Girl (1988) was the first of these and it's still a catchy and funky little song. Always liked this and I still do.
