Paula Abdul, who has a new song with fellow American Idol judge Randy Jackson, blames a plane mishap for keeping her out of the musical arena for more than a decade.
"I've been really, really blessed and fortunate and it's really, really poignant for me to come back now," Abdul, who was one of the pre-Super Bowl performers, told The Associated Press on Saturday.
Abdul is featured on the first single off the new album from Jackson, due out next month. The song is titled "Dance Like There's No Tomorrow." Abdul says an emergency plane landing that caused her injury in 1992 - she calls it a "plane crash" - was a key reason why she abandoned her multiplatinum singing career (she hasn't released a new album since 1995).
Abdul decided to return to music when Jackson asked her to be one of the artists on Randy Jackson's Musical Club, Vol. 1. She's already started work on a new album that she expects to be released by the summer.
