[YOUTUBE "bmZTVXJxb9Q"] In one sense, the friends mentioned in the lyrics to "Opposites Attract" were right: Paula Abdul and MC Skat Kat didn't last, and the 1989 hit was the high point of Abdul's collaboration with the animated hip hop cat.
But MC Skat Kat got a reprieve from pop culture obscurity last night when Late Late Show host James Corden played him in a live re-creation of the "Opposites Attract" video alongside Abdul.

In an exclusive first look at season 12 of the dance competition, the judges explain the reality show's new twist, in which the dancers are separated into two categories.
"We're looking for the top 10 stage dancers, which includes tap, ballroom, ballet, contemporary, and the top 10 street dancers – salsa, street, tango and, of course, all the hip-hop," says show creator Nigel Lythgoe. "Then we join them together and all hell's gonna break loose."

Despite what Public Enemy may have said, 1989 wasn't just "another summer". Though history is rarely that neat, the final summer of the '80s saw the slow fade of many of the decade's icons, as well as the launch of some of the '90s' most enduring pop-culture institutions.
In terms of cultural legacy, the summer of '89 might not be able to compete with its predecessor of two decades prior – Woodstock and Bryan Adams will do that – but 25 years later, we're still feeling its impact.
Whether you remember it or not, relive the summer of acid wash, hair metal and Do the Right Thing below.

Paula Abdul, an award-winning singer, dancer, choreographer and TV personality, can add a new title to her resume: religious pilgrim.
The former American Idol and The X Factor judge is on her first trip to Israel, where she is connecting to her Jewish roots and planning on holding a belated Bat Mitzvah – the Jewish coming of age ceremony girls typically have at age 12 or 13.
"Beyond being Jewish, I've always found myself to be very much in tune with spirituality," the 51-year-old Abdul told the Associated Press. "I feel very grateful coming to Israel now, where as a woman I know who I am a lot more than even 10 years ago."
