Paula Abdul Explains Why She Included Nicole Scherzinger in That Super Bowl Tweet

Paula Abdul‘s tweet ahead of the Super Bowl went viral because fans assumed that she believed that Nicole Scherzinger was actually Shakira.

The former American Idol judge tweeted that she “can’t wait to watch these amazing women perform at the Super Bowl” and gave shout-outs to Demi Lovato, Jennifer Lopez, and Shakira.

Paula also included photos of herself with Demi, Jennifer… and Nicole. The photo with Nicole featured the ladies holding footballs.

“I mean, my hips don’t lie… but I’m not @shakira babes 💋❤️,” Nicole wrote in response!

Now, Paula has responded, “.@NicoleScherzy I wanted to include this photo to commemorate this great football memory! Not to mistake you for Shakira. Nicole, even as a masked singer I couldn’t mistake you. As if we don’t go way back! xoP ❤️.”

If you didn’t know, Paula and Nicole were both judges on the first season of The X Factor USA.
