Last week, Paula Abdul opened up about Simon Cowell and his new nickname for his traveling buddies as the group embarks on the latest round of American Idol auditions.
â€œHe [now] calls Randy and I â€˜Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.â€™ Iâ€™m Dee, Randyâ€™s the Dum!â€ Abdul told People.
â€œWhatâ€™s happening is Randy and I have been agreeing on the talent as he disagrees,â€ says Abdul. â€œHe thinks we donâ€™t know what weâ€™re talking about, and the truth is Randy and I do know what weâ€™re talking about. Itâ€™s Randy and Paula against Simon. Iâ€™m on the winning side!â€
Overall, of course, Abdul confirms that she and Cowell are getting along.
â€œIn the past couple of cities weâ€™ve had no arguments. Heâ€™s still pestering me like hell, but we get along pretty well.â€
What's Randy Jackson's take on his insulting sidekick? He sums up Cowellâ€™s attitude by saying: â€œHeâ€™s cranky.â€
But the bright side is that the audition process has been â€œreally, really good, I must say,â€ Jackson admits. â€œYou still get the crazy buffoonery going on, but for the most itâ€™s been pretty good. I would say somebody with skin and teeth is definitely going to win!â€
We can't wait to see who that is.
