If Carrot Top has taught us anything, it’s that putting on a crazy wig doesn’t necessarily translate to humor.
Former American Idol host Paula Abdul lampooned new host Ellen with a zany blonde wig at the VH1 “Divas” concert last night (and I use the term “Divas” loosely). Unfortunately, her tribute wasn’t very funny.
Said Paula, after dancing through the crowd with her “Ellen moves:”
“Why are you all staring at me? Can’t a girl try out a new job! Nothin’ but love Ellen! And I wish you the best of luck. Call me! You gotta call me if you have any Simon problems ‘cuz I know him best.”
Watch the awkward tribute below. And then if you’re still hungry for some Paula, watch the incredibly insipid lip-synched “medley” of Paula’s ’90s hits. No close-ups allowed.
