AceShowbiz - Paula Abdul has hit back at claims she mistook her former "The X Factor USA" co-judge Nicole Scherzinger for Shakira in a snap shared online ahead of Sunday's February 2, 2020 Super Bowl.
"Can't wait to watch these amazing women perform at the #SuperBowl‼️ #DemiLovato @JLo @shakira xoP," Paula wrote, alongside pictures of herself with Jennifer and Demi.
However, instead of sharing a snap of herself with Shakira, Paula accidentally posted a picture alongside Nicole, with The Pussycat Dolls star responding, "I mean, my hips don't lie… but I'm not @shakira babes."
After the tweet went viral, Paula returned to the platform to insist the move was intentional, as she replied to the "Buttons "hitmaker, "@NicoleScherzy I wanted to include this photo to commemorate this great football memory! Not to mistake you for Shakira."
She added, "Nicole, even as a masked singer I couldn't mistake you. As if we don't go way back! xoP."
