Paula Abdul Tweets She's Leaving "American Idol"

A clever negotiating ploy or the truth? We'll see, but Paula Abdul has used Twitter to announce she is leaving American Idol.

Paula Abdul's message, spread across several tweets due to the 140-character limit of Twitter, says the following:
"With sadness in my heart, I've decided not to return to #IDOL. I'll miss nurturing all the new talent, but most of all ...being a part of a show that I helped from day1become an international phenomenon ... What I want to say most, is how much I appreciate the undying support and enormous love that you have showered upon me ... It truly has been breathtaking, especially over the past month ... I do without any doubt have the BEST fans in the entire world and I love you all."
This isn't unexpected. In mid-July, David Sonenberg, Abdul's manager, said the following to the LA Times:
"Very sadly, it does not appear that she's going to be back on 'Idol.' I find it under these circumstances particularly unusual; I think unnecessarily hurtful. I find it kind of unconscionable and certainly rude and disrespectful that they haven't stepped up and said what they want to do."
Paula Abdul had pretty much drifted into anonymity before "American Idol" returned her to stardom. One might think she'd be foolish to bolt, as many other stars have left the shows that made them rich and famous, only to end up "lost in the crowd." So, is this strictly a negotiating ploy? Time will tell.

Very confusing... she makes it sound as if she's choosing to leave, yet her manager makes it sound like she's being forced off. So it's hard to say if it's a negotiating ploy, foolish or not, or if she's just trying to maintain some dignity by framing it as a choice.

Paula leaving is a good thing so far as three idol judges is better than four, but they're going to lose a lot of that "fun factor" when she leaves...
