The New York Post reports that in the American Idol judge's house there's a salon chair where she gets her hair and makeup done every day. When the process of humanizing her begins, she'll sit down, set an alarm, then pass out from all the painkillers she's on. When the alarm goes off and she comes to, if her face isn't camera-ready, there's apparently hell to pay.

Abdul's rep tells the paper, "There's no alarm that I've ever seen." Operative words: "I've" and "seen."
