Paula Abdul says she has never had a drinking or drug problem, contrary to rumors claiming she has.

"I've never had a drinking problem," Abdul said in an interview to be broadcast this weekend on "CBS Sunday Morning."

"Even though I've been in this business for quite some time," Abdul added, "I've never physically been drunk in my life. I've never been drunk in my life. I don't use recreational drugs. But, I am goofy."

Asked by interviewer Julie Chen if unflattering footage of her appearing to be intoxicated is "just Paula," Abdul replied: "It's Paula. It is Paula. And, even the people on 'American Idol' know that none of that existed, ever."

The former "Idol" judge will soon be seen starring in the new CBS reality-competition series "Live to Dance."
