paula abdul 275 Happy Birthday, Paula Abdul!Former “American Idol” judge and new “Got to Dance” headliner Paula Julie Abdul is 48 years young Saturday, June 19 (seriously, 48? Are you kidding us?).

In honor of the Divine Ms. A’s birthday, we’d like to take a time travel back to our two favorite Paula videos from the 1980s — “Cold Hearted Snake” and “Opposites Attract.”

Why those two? “Snake” is s-s-s-s-sexy as hell and “Opposites” has an animated rapping cat. What’s not to love? Some honorable mentions include “Straight Up” (Arsenio Hall!) and “Rush Rush” (Keanu Reeves! Whoa.).

We can’t wait to see Paula on “Got to Dance” next season. She is serving as lead judge, executive producer, creative partner,
mentor and coach on the new CBS dancing competition.

Happy Birthday, Paula Abdul!
