This week, several popular blogs and online media outlets have reported that, over here at MTV, a decision has been made not to air “American Idol” judge Paula Abdul’s latest video – for the track “Dance Like There’s No Tomorrow” – which debuted on “Idol” last week. One such blog claimed to have spoken to sources, who said the video would not be added to the network’s rotation. An unnamed source, who allegedly spoke to MSNBC, apparently said “the only thing worse for a star like Paula to not have her video on TV is to have it actually rejected by MTV.”
Well, we’re flattered. The truth is, the department that makes such decisions here at MTV hasn’t even seen the clip – no one has submitted the video for airplay consideration. But they’ll be getting their first glimpse of the video on Monday, according to the scuttlebutt inside the building.
