Music video by Paula Abdul performing Straight Up (Video).

Oh no! It's a Trippin' Tuesday Music Video Flashback! Every time I hear this, it brings back memories of our local BBS outings of bowling, coffee at Wag's and then Perkin's, bonfire weekends on Gandy causeway. What are my old Meganet cohorts all doing now?

Raja and Carmen Carrera's lip sync battle on RuPaul's Drag Race season 3 brought me here! It was HOT, and Paula was one of the judges.

Love her distinctive vocals.  Even if you don't know the track, you know who the artist is.  Hard to say the same with most these days.  And don't even get me start with her beauty and dance floor prowess...

Why is Arsenio Hall blurred out after all these years? We've all seen him in this video a million times and now he's blurred out. What's up?

+Jason Downs Just googled it, because was curious too, and it seems they had few love affairs so it might be related.

On this day: At 11th February of 1989, Paula Abdul started a three week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with 'Straight Up', the first of three No.1's in 1989. Released as the third single from her debut album "Forever Your Girl", this was the best selling single of 1989 in the US. Before she was a singer, Paula Abdul was a cheerleader for the Los Angeles Lakers and a dancer. She had a knack for creating dance moves that went over well on MTV and became an in-demand choreographer after working with Janet Jackson on videos for "Nasty," "When I Think Of You," and "What Have You Done For Me Lately." She went on to work with ZZ Top, Duran Duran and Debbie Gibson before starting her own career as a singer. The music video was directed by David Fincher, who also directed Madonna's "Vogue" and The Wallflowers' "Sixth Avenue Heartache." Fincher directed the movies 'Seven', 'The Game' and 'Fight Club'. The clip won MTV Video Music Awards for Best Female Video, Best Dance, Best Choreography and Best Editing. #PaulaAbdul  #80sMusic #NewJackSwing  #RnB #Billboardcharts  #Music

Best comment ever to briefly summarize Paula's career. I had no idea Paula trained one of my all time favorite female artists ever: Janet Jackson. I was only 8 yrs. old in 1989, too young to appreciate the industry behind music, so I don't know enough about Paula's background, only her music and videos. This comment was very helpful though and I'd give it 100 thumbs up.

between her and Madonna ...I was just a child tho watching them, love crushing hard.  amazed at their talent.  That dude on American Idol  had a chance with Paula and just dogged her out,  some guys get all the breaks and end up being pricks.

Underground, my record needs to be the loudest, most powerful it can be or it won't sell on the sidewalk.  I can't see how this will change if I make it big time, into the retail shop.Other than this I'm working on precision of lyrics and beats.Beats that are too fancy aren't going to be accepted.  I'm good enough of a producer and writer now to make lamin songs.  Not simple;music lamin songs.- King aka John Jones.
