Paula Abdul is yet to figure out her next professional move.

But the former American Idol judge and X Factor panelist is headed into a different decade personally: she turns 50 years old today!

A startling fact for those of us who grew up on "Opposites Attract" and now feel ancient ourselves, the singer/dancer has made a career out of being zany for the past few years.

But the act finally wore thin after just one season on The X Factor, when good friend/producer/constant flirt Simon Cowell was forced to let Paula go. We hope she lands somewhere successful. What do you think Abdul should do next?

Send your best birthday wishes to Abdul now and also to the following celebrities: Zoe Saldana (34), Salman Rushdie (65) and Blaise Pascal (posthumous).
