The New York Giants shocking upset last night wasn’t the only Super Bowl performance worth noting, although it was certainly the most memorable. In slightly less stunning news, American Idol judge and 45-year-old pop star Paula Abdul returned, singing a song called “Dance Like There’s No Tomorrow.” In a word: Awkweird. Although we are staunch believers in second chances, and know with certainty here at VH1 that second acts in American public life both exist and are de rigeur (Scott Baio is 46! Peter Brady is married! Bret Michaels is looking for love in all the wrong places!), Abdul’s lip-synching was awkward in the extreme. Fellow Idol judge Randy Jackson accompanied Abdul on bass. And more than one Internet critic has called for the return of MC Skat Kat. That would have been interesting.
Super Bowl ’08: Cheaters Never Win!
We’ve watched this video for Heidi Montag‘s new single “Higher” a couple times trying to think of something nice to say about it, but all it’s inspired so far is a slight case of nausea. But hey – if you like PG-rated porn made with a hand-held camera (boyfriend Spencer Pratt shot the entire thing), then this clip is right up your alley! Heidi – at times decked out in a string bikini – writhes around in various beach spots and gesticulates with her hands like she’s giving the most important speech of her life. Sadly, this crappy song might be just that. [DListed]

Duck, my friends, or the sh*t that’s about to hit the fan may hit you in the face instead.
What’s that in the picture, you ask? Marital bliss, dear readers. But after all the naked girl photo-shoot drama, will it last?
“I’m very open so you can ask me anything!” Angelique told us prior to interviewing her. Duh! After the jump, Rock of Love 2‘s stripper with a heart of…something gives us a glimpse into her life as a dancer in Vegas, tells us what she really thinks of Bret, dishes about plastic surgery and sends a message to the haters: “If you don’t like me, don’t look at me.” That is, of course, assuming you’re able to tear your eyes away from her.
(Note: The interview below is only lightly edited for clarification: Angelique’s French approach to English is alive and well and most grammatical mistakes are a reflection on her singular style of speaking.)
Lost finally returned from hiatus with an episode that helped bridge the gap from last season’s focus on “The Others,” while dropping enough nuclear mind bombs to keep us fans buzzing all week. Below the jump we bust out some of the new things we learned, ponder a couple confusing twists, and revel in the stuff that got our panties all up in a bunch. Hit the Comments section to tell us your theories about this episode and share the moments that had you on your feet.
Hey everyone, gather round! Are you listening? Taking notes? Snapping pictures? Good. Kim Kardashian wants and needs your attention. She’s talking about an important, relevant issue: her stupid sex tape that for some reason won’t die. “I’m not poor, I’m not desperate, I would never try to sell a sex tape,” she says. “It would humiliate me and my family. I don’t need the money. It’s something I feel very betrayed by, but I’m not pointing any fingers.”
But why not just stop talking about the thing, then? Ah, that would mean that we might forget about Kim, and who on earth would want to do that? Never fear, Kim is hard at work trying to make it at this whole “famous for nothing” biz. When not sitting on her boyfriend’s lap, here’s what she’s up too: “I also model and I’m taking acting and singing classes. I work very hard.”
Yes, she puts Mother Teresa to shame with all her . Check out some pics of Kim working very hard below, while we work hard not to barf. [Getty]
Movie premieres, awards shows, benefit concerts, and plain old clubbin’ – even though most of us are at home, the beautiful peeps are living it up somewhere. Last Night’s Pics puts you in touch with all the action.
A visibly pregnant Jessica Alba strolled the red carpet at the premiere of her spookster flick, The Eye, alongside fiance Cash Warren and costar Alessandro Nivola.
The Cinema Society hosted a screening of “Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton,” attracting a slew of fashion-conscious celebs. Guests included Heidi Klum, Naomi Lenoir, Sophia Bush, Anne Hathaway, Marc Jacobs, Rachel Zoe, Ellen Pompeo, and Padma Lakshmi.
The red carpet at the premiere of The Spiderwick Chronicles was an eclectic mix of cute kids and drunken old dudes. Hayden Panettiere & brother Jansen did the red carpet thing with fellow cutie Freddie Highmore. On the other end of the carpet, Nick Nolte and son, Brawley, sort of looked like they stumbled into the wrong party. Martin Short was also spotted at the premiere. Nolte & Short both have supporting roles in the film, making us slightly less creeped out.

As if what’s happening in the Spears household wasn’t bad enough, now it seems that whatever’s wrong with the deposed pop princess might be catching. In terrifying news for people who fly in planes, an Air Canada flight from Toronto to London had to be diverted to Ireland on Tuesday because the co-pilot apparently suffered a nervous breakdown. According to reports, he was dragged screaming from the cockpit and placed into restraints. As one passenger told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation: “His voice was clear so he didn’t sound drunk or anything. He was swearing and asking for God and very distressed. He basically said he wanted to talk to God.” Couple that with the news of Jamie Lynn’s pregnancy and even news about Eva Mendes’ rehab visit, and we think we’ve identified a trend. Crazy: No longer reserved for full-moons only.
