Paula Abdul is in Israel these days exploring her Jewish roots and celebrating her Bat Mitzvah. But the singer set some fun time aside, and went down to the Dead Sea last weekend for some R&R.
Abdul was snapped floating in the famously salty waters, rocking a gorgeous swimsuit. She also covered herself in the sea's rich mud, known for its therapeutic qualities.
"I've traveled the world touring and things like that but I don't get the chance to see much of wherever I'm at," the former "American Idol" judge told the Associated Press. "[This visit has been] the most magnificent trip I've ever taken … magical and emotional."
