Paula Abdul Is Doing Crack, Evidently

This was just too good of a line to pass up commenting on. There is an article on USAToday.com where Paula Abdul is quoted as saying
I've never been drunk. I have never done recreational drugs," she says. "Just look at my 20-year career. Tell me someone who is into partying or doing drugs that could have done that."
Has she never heard of The Rolling Stones? The Beatles weren't around for 20 years but together or separately they have. What kind of a defense is that?
