Simon's Worth A Whole Lot More Than Paula Abdul

Did you guys catch Paula Abdul's performance on American Idol last night?

Though she didn't sing a lick of her tune "I'm Just Here For the Music" and her lip-synching was terrible, I thought she did pretty well. Her body is ridiculous, she can definitely dance, and the number was entertaining.

It's good that Paula will be making money off her music again -- maybe she'll be in the running to earn as much cash as co-judge Simon Cowell does.

Then again, maybe not.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Paula is currently in negotiations with Idol to renew her contract, and, if there are any hang ups, it is likely to be over salary. Apparently Simon makes about $36 million a season, while Paula makes around $2 million!

Okay, yeah, Simon's critiques are usually right on the money, while Paula's judging is slightly skewed not to hurt the contestants' feelings, but isn't that her purpose? That seems like a really big discrepancy. I would fight it, too!

Do you think Paula deserves to make just as much as Simon? Okay, maybe not just as much, but closer to what he makes?
