Paula Abdul's very broad force majeure clause

Paula_abdul If singer/dancer Paula Abdul’s flight gets canceled or she gets sick and misses a concert, she may be entitled to be paid by the promoter anyway, as long as it’s not her fault.

An odd force majeure clause in her tour contract provides:

In the event that ARTIST is unable to perform during the period of time specified in the Contract due to no fault of her own, ARTIST shall be paid the full compensation agreed upon without the necessity of ARTIST’S performing.
